During October this year I am going to post some ink drawings in a range of different styles. These were done at various stages over the whole of the last year. As I collected these together I was looking for:
- a realistic illustration
- cartoon illustration
- an illustration focusing on natural patterns
- an illustration focusing on more abstract patterns
- a graphical illustration
This week, it’s simple realistic illustration. This is a drawing of a labrador dog in a fairly old fashioned realistic illustration style.
Over the last year I made a book for my mum. It had a collection of excerpts from her favourite poems which I then illustrated. This was one of the illustrations I made.
Here’s how I worked out the basic shapes…
Here’s my pencil drawing…
And this is the final illustration…
