Moleskine and Bone

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 1, 2013 by n8vandyke

I was asked to be some work for a Moleskine Sketchbook gallery show so I decided to do a mole… skull. I’ve got the early and final stages of the piece.

First up is the pencil sketch…

Aaaand POOF! Here it is all finished up. Used a variety of mediums for this one. The final size is roughly 8″x10″.

The Evolution of a Color Piece

I decided with this mixed media piece that I’d take some evolution scans of it since people are always curious about how I go about an illustration like this. Enjoy the show…

Here’s the first stage… thumbnails until I find something I like…

Next up are the pencils after deciding on the sketch I like. This is being done in a 8″x10″ Moleskine sketchbook…

Here we have an ink/marker wash to lay down the foundation colors…

After that I lay in some quick inks and muddy up the colors a bit more…

Now for the fun part… finishing it. For the paint-over I use acrylic, gouache, color pencil, spray paint and paint pens…
