I recently finished an illustration for an African folk tale called the Lion and the Hare.
Hare, in African lore, is a trickster and in this particular story, he manages to convince the large, but easily outsmarted, Lion not to eat him.
I’m sharing my process, again in this illustration, starting with the initial concept sketch.
To the final rendered pencil that will become the base for the final work. This gets scanned and cleaned up in Photoshop for the final piece.
Once that happens, I begin using “paths” in Photoshop that will allow me to isolate and work on regions of the artwork.
All this finally leads to the final piece. Yay!
I’ll share this cover illustration in context on an upcoming post!
