Project Description

Create a unique illustration using just a simple pen and a few colors!

Feel free to use my collection of resources on Pinterest for some cool floral references and color palettes : https://www.pinterest.com/margaw

  • Choose a shape for your illustration - be as bold and creative as you want!
  • Gather some references for your illustration
  • Create a sketch, ink it and color it
  • Scan it or take a picture and share your creation!

Attachments : Two inking exercises to practice the techniques i showed you in the video lessons. I also added two B/W versions of my illustration so you can print them and practice coloring them. 

Feel free to also share your work in progress! I'm also here if you have any questions :)
