art, Art Progression

From Sketch to Print

Sometimes when you create a design it just isn’t enough to sketch out something. You need to work out a final product.

During Inktober I made this drawing for the prompt Ominous. At the time I had this quote from Harry potter stuck in my head. “I must not tell lies…” ~ OotP ch.13 and at the same time the election was coming up and I just wanted to create a design that encouraged everyone to vote, because I firmly believe in the power of voting. Over all I was really happy how the design turned out but it felt like a small drop in the bucket of the possibilities. I am not a fan of my handwriting for instance and all the writing felt super rushed, not to mention I initially spelled Dolores with an e as seen here in this sketch. Anyway the point is that I truly felt that the image could be better.

Not long after I published this for Inktober the election was coming so I decided to really make it more fine tuned for the November election. So that is exactly what I did. I opened up the original design, chose a new color palette and fonts and got to work building this piece of art which is now on sale in my shop.

In the spirit of thanksgiving and the holidays I just wanted to share some of my thought process and how I get from A to Z with my designs and art. If your willing and able to purchase I truly appreciate you supporting my work.

As always thank you for taking the time to read 💚. Know that I appreciate you and wish you all the luck in the world on your creative endeavors.

Till next time, Happy Designing 💚!
