I am currently working on a small edition of my toys that is going to be revealed soon. For this I made a brand new illustration which will be featured on the outside of the toy’s box.
For all of those that follow my flickr photostream this is hardly newsworthy but I actually documented the making of this painting step by step. For everyone else, here is the whole process consolidated into one neat blog post.
Step 1: The underlying sketch in pencil.
Step 2: A light layer of gesso and some clean-up of the line work.
Step 3: The colors that will guide the mood.
Step 4: Black for the skyline
Step 6: Adding a little definition and colors
Step 7: Giving the monster more identity
Step 8: Refining the monster and tightening their features
Step 9: Same process for the last monster and the tanks. First the general colors and then the details
Step 10: Finished! Sign and date.
