Vicki, who has just completed the Illustrating Children’s books course, has received her final grade and passed with Distinctions. I asked Vicki if she would write a little about her final piece which I have added below. We would like to wish Vicki the best of luck in her future career as an illustrator, we are sure that she will be successful!
“I began with line drawings of each element (gnome, mushroom house, blackberries, leaves, etc.) which I inked with marker pens. Then I scanned them into the computer and coloured each element. I made a background with lots of textures and then placed my coloured drawings into this, moving them around until I was happy with the composition. I made my own textures and brushes especially for this piece to create a real art look that allows my own style to come through”.
