So, I was excited when my latest Sketchbook Skool homework assignment was to create an imaginary book cover, done in the style of a favorite artist. Here's an example of her art (can click on any pics to enlarge):
Since my husband and I recently celebrated our 37th anniversary, I chose to make the imaginary book cover for our Wedding Photo Album.
My sweetie proposed to me all those years ago on a bridge at a park, in front of the children's wooden playground.
Doing this assignment brought back such memories. I enjoyed
doing it very much!
It all started with a line drawing.
I drew many of the shapes as an homage
to Jane Filer, such as pointed arms and
feet, angel in the air, fish seeming to
hover, flower and tree shapes, and
the running rabbit with ears
I scanned it and played with color
schemes in photoshop:
And the finished colored sketch:
Done in 9 x 12 sketchbook, Pitt pens, watercolor pencils,
waterbrush, colored pencils, white paint pen,
and gold Pearl-Ex for the lettering.
Thanks for looking, and happy sketching!
