Required to work with a given dialogue, illustrate a basic story line which includes at least 2 characters, create a sequence of illustrations or comic strip.
From what I recall, a fun brief that required lots of imagination. I found this brief relatively easier than the last few that I have described, probably due to the barriers I had overcome within them and everything I have learned from working on them. I concentrated on making full use of my selected imagery chosen for research to enable myself to create the illustration direct from my mind. The characters for the illustration were a family of spiders, a Gran and Grandson, who lived in a bathroom so photos of bathrooms was essential to draw from. I had fun getting these photos sneakily in-store at B &Q ( thanks to my partner, Michael), at my mother’s house and also my own bathroom…positioning myself around an empty bath tub is not a good look but does enable essential photographic angles from a spiders point of view!!
Getting the right image research proved to be a very important part of the illustrative process as i Learned at this point, I knew I had it right as my visual ideas seemed to be flowing freely so I was able to draw throughout this brief quite fluently.
Sadly ( haha) there is no picture of me taking the photos….
I decided id like to have a try with ink for these illustrations and some thicker paper to be able to hold the ink, i found it very easy to use, and seem to relate to the Sepia color, I am not sure why that specific color but I just know I feel at ease with it for now.
This is definitely a brief I will go back to progress in the future, I had so much fun created the story and characters and also enjoyed the use of ink.
