A friend asked me to create an illustration for her Facebook group thread: Turtle Step Tuesday.
For this illustration I used a stock image as reference. I painted it with watercolors and then retouched it in Photoshop.
These are my own rules when delivering:
- Detail. I like showing detail on my illustration. It doesn't matter if it takes some time. In this case, the main details are on the shell of the turtle.
- Well shaped. I don't do abstract, so most of the time I will deliver sharp drawings.
- Handmade look style. So far all of my illustrations are handmade. But I'm in the process of learning how to use Photoshop and Procreate. So, I might digitize my work soon in order to have a more polished deliverable.
