So I’m wrapping up a good three months worth of fruit sketches right now and I’ve been inspired to talk about my process. Everyone’s drawing process is different depending on the medium he/she works in, the amount of detail in the piece, and the artist’s drawing style.
I decided to pick one of my smaller pieces (this one took about half an hour total because I was filming at the time) and show how it went from sketch to finished design.
Here you can really get a good sense of what was added in each layer and how it added to the piece. Everything I draw starts out as a pencil outline, then the marker layer gets added. Later, a second layer in a darker shade is added in to give more dimension and then each raspberry seed is outlined.
And that’s it! My finished raspberry only took 4 layers and I couldn’t be happier with my latest addition to my collection of fruity sketches.
