I have been busy doing illustrations for RUS407. Here is my process for U8_7. The scene is basically Polina and Oleg seated on the stairs in front of their country home, happily blowing bubbles while wearing flower crowns with tulips.
As usual, my process starts with an extremely rough sketch (rough to the point where it almost looks goofy?).
Quickly drew out the house to make things a bit clearer for myself.
After cleaning things up, I started doing line art and color.
Here’s what it initially looked like before a few iterations!
There were some issues with this:
- I forgot that I was supposed to be drawing tulips in the flower crown.
- The bubbles are too opaque, they should look more… well… bubbly and kind of iridescent!
- More issues to come!
I went back in and drew in tulips and make the bubbles actually look like bubbles.
Almost at the finish line! However, there are a few more issues (like I said before: More issues to come!)
The background is looking a bit barren? It’s kinda sad. They’re wearing flower crowns and blowing bubbles on a nice sunny/spring-y(?!) day, but there are no flowers in sight.
I added some plants (courteously stolen from U1_1 from RUS406), and drew in some birch trees behind the house.
I’m also getting a little ahead of myself, but I went ahead and started doing a quick mockup for U11_5 in Adobe Illustrator. It’s supposed to be a website selling flowers and similar things.
