Hello, it's been a while but we are back and in full FolioFocus swing! To celebrate, not only will be share the first FolioFocus summer gallery, we also have some work in progress snaps and tips from a couple of our classmates.
Last week's brief involved the creation of some watery wonders and as usual, they did not disappoint. From Viking ships by Inga Zwirschitz to a Blue Mermaid scene by Sam Pernoski (both shown below), the variety and imagination submitted is a feast for the eyes.
"Once I have an idea I tend to run with it. I always start with sketches and thinking about the different elements going into the design. I tidy up my line work on my light box and make marks and textures that I think may be useful. Everything is then scanned into my pc and I start building the design. It's here that I start playing with composition and colour, gradually building as I go".
After taking a trip to the harbour and aquarium taking photos for inspiration, Mandy started her process creating a motifs designed in Procreate. These were later taken into Illustrator.
