29,000 Floating Ducks

The Travelling Art Journal Project

Sunday, March 05, 2006


I'm really looking forward to receiving my ATC's. In the meantime, I thought I might post my design in case anyone was interested in the process. This is just the start (fitting in as many ducks as I could in the space) which is to draw out the image, and work out the tones, just using cross-hatched biro.

Then I'll use Photoshop to remove the tones so I can work out colour, and then I'll trace the whole thing onto watercolour paper and go through the whole business of putting washes in the background and cross-hatching with the watercolour to get the detail. This looks very drab at the moment, but it won't ... promise!

All the best to everyone!
