Digital Illustration Style
Digital illustration style now tells stories from the modern life in the cities, the country and pop-up dreams. Topics are many and come from the inspiring lives we are living!:)
I created these illustrations out of a need to get involved in visual storytelling. Beautiful images are often made out of passion. With so many stories out there, it becomes very interesting to put some images on them too.
It’s fun making these illustrations, especially because of the storytelling part and developing the characters, the background and the props and make it all come together. I usually start with a pencil sketch or several sketches, and when I have found a character I like, I scan it into the computer.
I make a light sketch of it again, and then one more that is better, because now I can see where to improve the lines etc. And then it’s color-time! It consists of coming up with good matching and contrasting colors so the image will look delightful or good. The medium also plays a role, as I want to explore digital illustrations and see what they can do as to watercolors and pencil. A more playful and whimsical style occurred, which I like a lot.
