Last weekend i attended the second Northern Light Workshop with Jesper Ejsing and Eva Widermann as instructors. The focus was on character design, so I took the opportunity to polish my ideas of a cookie monster for a children's tale I'm working on together with Therese Järvheden.
Trying to get the pose right before I do a larger sketch...
After making a larger sketch of the pose I want, I refine the image on a new piece of paper and start coloring. This day I wanted to try painting directly on a toned piece of paper.
Watercolor and Acryla Gouache on toned paper
I learned a ton during the process of this image and I had a lot of fun making it. I will have more to show you from the children's tale as it progresses!
