Illustration Process: Stargirl

Hello. This week I finished two illustrations. Here is one of them.

1) thumbnails


Went with the bottom left.

2) detailed sketch

Lots of Photoshop and texture overlays from previous oil paintings in this one.

3) grayscale painting

I mixed a lot of raw umber with ultramarine blue as a gray. The canvas was already stained raw umber, hence the underlying sepia tone. Time to spice it up!

4) color studies

I referenced Brad Holland’s work, and ultimately went with the first study.

5) final illustration
