Illustration

Personal Drawing

Here is my selected illustration work. I have developed my tonal drawing style with pencil to biro ink pen as I personally prefer the depth of the ink and the tone of the blue. My current illustration style consists of scribble technique with the flow of blue ink pen, to combine with a coloured brush stroke to highlight the face or the emotion of the drawing.
