My Lion Illustration step by step!
For this artwork I will be showing my process series for my lion abstract and tribal illustration!
First I start by sketching out the outline of my artwork. Once I have that done I just let my imagination take its course. I do not research online or on other images for inspiration, its better for me to just let my hand follow what my mind and soul has to say :)
My process takes time, patience and dedication. I carefully illustrate all my tiny details one by one until I fill each section of my lion template.
Below you can see all the series plus the finished one in black and white.
I then scanned it and moved onto Photoshop for color addition.
I clean up the design a bit, and then add color to each design element one at a time. Takes time, but its fun for me to do!
