Hausu WIP

Hey all!
I have been asked by a few people to post WIPs of my work so here’s a “tutorial” of sorts to give you an idea of how I make my pictures!

Prepare yourself for a long, boring post, haha.

1. So firstly I make a super rough sketch in Photoshop, capture the general mood/compositions etc.

2. I take my sketch into Illustrator and vector a solid, darker, block of colour, this is the lineart. I then vector another block of colour on top. I don’t use strokes or effects on any of my art, the colour and lineart are all vectored individually. 


3. Wireframe of my vectors. I switch wireframe on and off constantly while I work so I can view the sketch underneath.

4. Doing more complicated shapes like hair take a lot of time. I block in the shape first to make sure it has a good, strong silhouette before I add any colour on top.

5. Filling in more details…As you can see, I’ve completely changed the hands from the sketch haha. A lot of tweaking happens in the vector stage.

6. Starting to fill the hair in, lots of layers and repositioning stuff.

7. Adding more details. I like framing my pictures so that nothing is cut off in the image as my backgrounds are usually transparent. You can see I was originally going to have the cat in the background, in the sketch, but I decided it made the final composition too tall.

8. Details and close up of the face.

Last steps I forgot to screencap but I add a gradient in the hair, take the image into Photoshop, tweak colours, mess around with it a bit until I’m happy with how it looks.

Hope this was interesting/useful to you!
Have a Happy Halloween everyone!!!
