Behind the Mind: Birds of All Feather Illustration Flyer
The past week, I partook in a local live music event at the Daily Bean in Vernon, NJ. I showed off my artwork there and managed to sell a decent amount, I did pretty well. The people performing music there also had a lot of fun!
Also, I illustrated the flyer for this event. The text and type were supplied by someone else. For the flyer, I used the Procreate app on my fairly new iPad I got three months ago. Instead of using my finger to draw, I bought a stylus pen and used that. Drawing with a stylus almost feels like you're drawing with pen and paper.
Starting out I would use simple solid black strokes for the outlines. After completing the outlines for my layers, I would switch the colors of my strokes and widen them to fill over. Once the solid colors are in, I would add smaller details on my birds and the branch they're sitting on. The backgrounds look more paint like than the birds, which I wanted to be able to tell apart. Just in case, I made a horizontal flyer and another of a vertical flyer. The photo shown way above is the final design.
Below are links to two time lapse videos of the illustrations being drawn in process. Watching these videos will help make sense of what I've explained in this post.
