Lucy's Tiger


Howdy folks!

Here's a new illustration I just finished, it's for a story I'm writing about a girl who likes to invent and build mechanical creatures and contraptions. Below are close-ups and photos of the process. 





My final line drawing, color study, and two value studies. For my first value study, I tried staging the scene at night with dark shadows. After thinking about color combinations, I chose bright lighting to showcase the characters and create an upbeat mood.


For lighting and drawing reference, I built a rough model. I used Sculpty, wire, aluminum foil, and bits of cardboard.

Thanks for visiting!
