Interpretive Illustration TutorialsAn

In my class Interpretive Illustration we do various in class tutorials exploring different techniques and finishes for images. Here is an example of a few techniques we have learned in class.
A sample of colouring using the gradient tools in photoshop.

Similar to above, but instead we are using the dodge/burn tools.

A sample of digital etching using Matisse.

Here is my Inktober day 4! A modern witch hard at work. Sketched in my sketchbook and inked using Micron pens and Prismacolour markers.

I know, I know, I am a day late for my every other day schedule. BUT, I was sick and I am posting it today so it will be okay. Today's Inktober is a little drawing of a lovely lady who may or may not be a witch. Keep your eyes open, I will be updating again soon!

A little love for Blue and Gansey on Inktober day two. These beautiful characters are created with love by the amazing Maggie Stiefvater.

For the month of October I have taken on the challenge of Inktober, an ink drawing every day in the month of October. 31 days, 31 drawings.

For the first drawing of the month I took inspiration from Maggie Stiefvater's character Ronan Lynch from The Raven Boys. There is nothing like a good Ronan Lynch and his dream things.

The following digital paintings used music to express line, colour, and texture. Here are some of the final outcomes.


The first assignment in our interpretive illustration class involved taking a singular photo and trying to sketch it out using multiple different techniques. The original photo used is this photo of an old man.

 We then proceeded to draw him using Photoshop, the first example is a drawing using only curved lines.
The next example is one done in our own style just completing the line work.

This example used timed lines where we had to use a continuous stroke for a set amount of time.

This one was taking the photo and flipping it upside down.

This is another example of using time strokes.

Finally we were only allowed to use straight and angular lines.

By taking one photo and exploring different means of using lines we are getting a feel for different expressions and how they translate into one image.
