Adding new textures
I carry on working character by character, bringing each personality out by adding defining detail and creating spotlights that establish the solidity of the figures. I next start to add new textures in the illustration such as fur, textile patterns and skin.
If a character doesn’t come out the way I want, I redo a sketch over the initial element I want to change, providing new features. The illustration doesn’t need to always follow a linear pattern of beginning, middle and end. I can always go a step back and rework it to reach a more balanced outcome.
