Create Magical Art

Ok so this is my inital first rough sketches of my phrase. This is very much a work in progress, so I will add more as I go on. Sorry if the photos are a bit faded looking- I used light pencil and so they havent shown up well from being scanned....

I started off by jotting down some key words to do with my phrase 'Create magic and show to the world'. I wanted a phrase that was personal to me and my jounrey as an artist. The 'magic' refers to my art and therefore it is to remind myself that I have to show my art to the world in order to get noticed.


Next I started doing some thumbnail sketches with my words and seeing what fitted best.



Next I took a few elements from the thumbnails that I liked and tried laying them out, still in very rough sketches but again just playing around with scale etc to see what I liked.



Once I had decided upon my final design, I started by sketching it out in pencil. I then went over in black pen ready to scan later.





I made a few adjustments before finishing my design, as shown below.


Any and all feedback welcome!
