I have finally had some spare time to actually draw! I have done some more on my epic piece This Is War. This Is War is based on my favourite book series, and at the moment is really a whole bunch of different elements I wanted to include, and they are slowly coming together as one.
I thought I would share my process with you, to give followers of this blog a little bonus. I recently finished (although nothing is ever 100% finished) the crashed spaceship and did the flames coming out of it. Here is a series of photos of my doing the flames. They show you all the different shades of colours I use and how many layers it takes.
and the final:
In these shots you can also see my tablet on the side as my reference photos. This sits on my easel nicely, and either has the photo of what I am drawing. or in this case, the googled images of “fire”.
