These are the sketches I made, before doing the final illustration.
I explored a bit, using pen and ink instead of fineliners. Also, instead of watercolours or ecoline, I used coloured ink, and I liked layering it. Children's book illustrator Harmen van Straaten
uses this technique. After seeing him do it on a television show, I gave it a go.
This was also a start to warm up for the workshop on How To Design A Character.
It starts October 28, and there are still a few seats available. If you would like to join this 4-week online workshop; you can read about it and enroll by clicking here
