I will be working on an illustration project with someone this year, and although I can’t really give details about that project, one thing I will say is that it will require mostly line work from me. My work is usually digital painting that relies on values, so for now I’m planning to do a lot of small sketches to practice and warm up for doing detailed line drawings. My instinct is to start shading everything because that’s how I’m use to working. I think I’m going to have to do a lot of these for practice.
Some of these drawings I may eventually use for a digital painting.
This first one is a sketch of an Eagle.
