A few folks have been asking to see some behind the scenes process photos. Spooky Little Halloween Kitty is my latest creation.
Watercolor is where all of my designs begin. I start with a drawing. I usually draw in Procreate since it's so easy to erase and get the shapes and lines just right. Once complete, I print out my drawing and transfer it to my watercolor block. I use a ballpoint pen to re-trace all the lines. It's how I learned in art school, and how I still do it today. Love good ol' fashion transfer paper!
Then the fun begins! Applying the watercolor is my favorite part!
I keep going and going until all the color is complete. I haven't quite captured the rest of my process yet. I'm working to capture more and more soon. Once the pieces are done, I scan them to my computer and transfer them back to Procreate for all of the final edits and additions like my hand lettering. I tend to go back and forth with the files between Procreate and PhotoShop to complete the final piece.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into my creative process!
