I absolutely loved working on this commission!
It was commissioned by Mike (a vet himself), and it’s of Dr. Slash doing a checkup on the turtles. Lots of cool little details in this one which Mike and I bounced ideas for… there’s a Vitruvian Turtle poster, certificates from Dimension X University and Stockgen Labs, and a road safety poster just for turtles.
Here was the process –
Step 1: initial idea
Step 2: rough sketch
Step 3: blue lines
Step 4: inks
Step 5: Ink wash (plus start of watercolours)
Step 6: Ta da! (Watercolour plus gouache highlights)
