Paint aportrait of an anti-hero
Explains her creative process and approach towards storytelling, as she depicts someone from the wrong side of town…
nti-heroes are super cool. Be it in a novel, comic book, TV series, or a movie, there’s nothing quite like a character who doesn’t fit the norm. They’re the kind of characters who skew the lines between right and wrong, taking you on a roller coaster ride of conflicting emotions. They’re also the kind of characters I’m inspired by the most.
With this workshop, my aim is to translate these ideas into visual
Acomponents. Cue roughed up sci-fi protagonist! A man of the law, who’s on the edge of his moral compass and seems to have gotten himself into a bit of trouble. Rather than focus on the fight, I want to capture him in a moment of introspection. The story in mind is pretty simple, and your concept can be just the same. It’s just about adding subtle details to enhance your narrative.
Starting with my thumbnail, I’ll take you through my process. From laying out concise line work, to shading in greyscale and then moving on to colour. The better you plan your idea, the easier it will be to assemble your artwork. This workshop will feature a range of techniques you can implement in your own process, whether you want to learn about colouring, or easy ways to detail your art. My aim is to deliver a subtle story by using simple tools and techniques to help you on your way.
Now it’s time to grab your tablet and start bringing this dark horse to life!
