kitchen


 I'm trying new and quicker ways to use natural media for picture books with tight deadlines. Do I separate the line layer from the colour layer? Or do I separate the elements in a picture and put them together in photoshop, like this one? Used oil pastels on brown and white paper + colour pencil, scissors and photoshop.

crayons


Been working on a picture book again. And it got me experimenting to figure out new combinations of techniques to arrive at fresh look. Here is one I like, though it's not for the current project. This one brings me back to old school oil pastels (crayons), combined with some acrylic for a base (the hair) and colour pencil/pencil for lines, with the addition of a palette knife to scrap of the wax of the oil pastels. I almost sound like a chef haha.
