How I Use Layers to Color This Fantasy Monster Illustration (India Ink & Gouache Timelapse)
There's something magical about how color pops when you layer it into a drawing. In this time lapse video, you'll see me take this "chungus" from a blue line sketch to an eye-popping (see what I did there?) full-color illustration.
The impetus for this ttrpg commission artwork was when my friend Levi Combs at Planet X Games reached out about a special illustration project for an upcoming zine. Levi wanted to know if I'd be interested in making a professional illustrator's spin on his son Owen's drawing.
I said "HELL YEAH!"
So sit back and enjoy this time lapse art video about my illustration process and how I use layers of gouache and India ink to make vibrant colors.
