Title: Can’t Get Away
Â Â Â I was asked by Prof. Rick Lovell to visit his Advanced Digital Illustration course at SCAD-Atlanta and share how I work on my illustrations with his students. Â It is always such a delightful moment to see Rick, and also share what I have in my creative kitchen with his students. Â Fun!
Â Â Â I super quickly (I mean super quickly) showed how I colour digitally; especially, it is pretty fast when I use Pen Tool in Photoshop… Â I overheard some student’s WTF gag. Â Gurl, I can twirl on Pen Tool, give me Pen Tool so I can breathe.Â
Â Â Â So I chose this sketch that I did when I visited my ballet dancer friend at his ballet studio in Hell’s Kitchen. Â I drew one of his friends on a break. Â She just straightly went on her cellphone, and sipped tiny amount of water after her hands danced on the cellphone. Â I guess checking on a cellphone is way more important than drinking water during her short break from the ballet practice.Â
Â Â Â This brought me to this concept. Â We are so tied up with checking up overloaded amount of information on a cellphone when you try to work out. Â There are endless new health products, facts from new studies, quotes, this and that… Â Then you find yourself not doing anything but looking at your cellphone screen for hours. Â Well, it’s basically me haha.Â
and eventually a balance ball and cellphone charger were added later.Â
It is pretty flat even though I have much texture on a piece, so I move on to layer shadows and highlights, which I normally paint by gouache on watercolour paper. Â
So here are some close-ups!
Anyway, hope y’all like it:)
