I am trying to spend more time on details. here is the first set of images. I took about 40 min on each. The notebook is small. next time I’ll use a bigger norebook for even more detail. I used a Lamy pen and Stillman and Birn sketchbooks.

Our Sketching Workshop group is developing a graphic novel that started by accident. Rene Fijten posted an image in the group and another member of the group followed creating a sequence. This continued developing making a story. This is how we are so far and the story goes as this:

Detail on a Building in Back Bay

This detail corner was done on my Stillman and Birn Beta Series sketchbook. I used Lamy fountain pens for the outlines and sketching, this was done on dry brush technique with W&N Cotman watercolors.

It is important to keep on sight good contrasts of light and shadow I believe to make a bold statement on volumes.

winterThis Drawing was done on my Stillman and Birn Sketchbook and scanned to be coloured in Photoshop. I do my own brushes in Photoshop from scratch by creating my own presets out of my hand brush strokes, then I stamped them on the image picking the right composition colors, the rest is just gradations and fills in masked areas, varying opacity in the layering.

The spirit of NEW year 2014

Wish the best for all of you who follow my blog, my regards to your families and utmost gratitude for visiting my blog!
