I'm really happy with this weeks illustration! I used a combination of brush and dip pen which I have never done for a commercial illustration and it worked well. The pen worked for smaller curves, details and 'hard texture' (like the bricks) objects while the brush worked for bigger curves, more sweeping lines, and 'softer textures' (like the ground and grass). Funnily enough as I was doing it, I knew exactly what colours I wanted to use, so that saved the decision making and experimenting time later! The article is not out yet, but when it is I will post the link. Oh yes, here is the original sketch proposal..
I'm really glad they went with A! B would hav been fun too though, and C would have also been fine, but definitely my las choice. I'm working with a great editorial team here.
