I have been wanting to try out the time-lapse feature on Procreate. Usually, I just ink my work digitally but I wanted to take something from the sketch to final. Time-lapse is a very interesting feature but a bit too lightweight for what I was looking for. I see how they are utilizing the redo/undo feature to make a time-lapse video, which is cool but when I see an artist process I would prefer a screencast. I love it when IU can see all the tools an designer or artist is using and how they use it. The best part about tools like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator is that there’s a number of different ways to do the same thing and I love getting that insight through screencasts.
Either way this is still cool and was super fun to play around with. Defiantly check it out.
Recording another speed drawing session. Once again for the monthly sticker club, Slaptastick. This months theme was fictional characters from books. My illustration was based on on of my favourite children’s books of all time Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl.
This illustration shows a way to design more symmetrical characters. By working on a single side, flipping it and then adding subtle modifications so it doesn’t look like an exact copy. In my opinion it’s all the little details that gives an illustration character and sets it apart, especially if you are working in a clean vector style.
Another process video for you guys. This is for a piece I call ‘Ghosts in the Groove.’ This was created using my 12″ Wacom Cintiq (older model) tablet. With this illustration I was trying to mimic the overprinting process when doing silkscreen. To do this I chose 2 colours and used the multiply effect in Photoshop. When taking this to press always take Photoshop’s multiply effect a grain of salt. 9 times out of 10 it will not be exactly what you see on screen. It’s a constant trial and error process until you get the results you’re looking for.
In future videos I will show some of the other techniques I have used to mimic the silkscreen process. Until then stay tuned and thanks for checking out my speed drawing process video.
A few months back I was asked by Slap Stickers to do a fun reimagining of the brand. After some discussion we decided to go with a handmade script lettering approach. Whenever I get the opportunity to do some custom scripts I cannot refuse. It’s one of those design muscles that can never be flexed enough; in my opinion.
Here is a my speed drawing/process video for the project. You can see how I take the sketch all the way to final vectorization on my Wacom Cintiq drawing tablet.
