SUPER MONDAY with Justice Gillman

Good afternoon, Hope you all had a great weekend!! We had a fun weekend in Orange with our classes at The Dragonfly Lounge (a great cafe/ 2nd hand bookstore  - and a must visit if you are ever in Orange :) 

NOW I'm super excited to introduce you to the next member of our Design Team ... 

“I have been an avid comic-book reader and collector since I was about 8, and this meant that from an early age I would copy my favourite pictures and loved sketching as a way to relax. Two years ago my wife bought me a bunch of Copics for my birthday to encourage me to try something new (she had been very observant after I had raved about some art I had seen using copics). In my other life I am a high-school English teacher, so my art is very comic/pop-culture inspired, although recently I have been trying to experiment more widely with other reference material to try and improve my blending and representation of lighting.”

Look at this Marvellous artwork that he created over the weekend ... He included some process shots for you.

1)       Pencil sketch of rough outlines and features.

2)       Layering of Copics on the face first, then using the multiliner to add in some outlines of features after I have coloured them.

 3)       Colouring of the cowl, final white touches with the Posca marker.
