A new illustration from my currently ongoing “Cold In Yokohama” series. As alway with such illustrations I set myself an interesting problem to solve: this time I tried to do some depth-of-field type blur effect.
On the right side of the picture you can see a group of high school students waiting outside a bento (ready-made packed meals) shop. I wanted to put them in one of my illustrations since I saw them on one of my walks and took a photo with my iPhone.
Lines - mitsu-bishi pencils from HB to 8B
Colours - Shmincke and Winsor and Newton watercolours
Paper - 300g/㎡ Holbein SAUNDERS cold press F4 size
This time I recorded also the digital sketch and pencilling in the lines on a tracing table so I will show it in short soon and then discuss it in detail in a video at the end of the series (If you are interested in a tutorial).
Winter is coming…and if you pre-order WINTER by Marissa Meyer and submit your receipt, you can receive a pair of WINTER touchscreen gloves that are perfect for cold nights and and a Lunar Chronicles shimmer tattoo sheet! (While supplies last) http://bit.ly/1VbBuaL
