We sing (Mahala)

Ink illustration step by step

Step by step process of an editorial illustration for Mahala “We sing” written by Mlilo Mpondo.
After reading through the story, I started sketching out some thumbnail ideas and concepts. Once I felt happy with an idea I started sketching out the illustration with an HB pencil. I also start shading  to add values and form to the piece. From this point I start working with indian ink and pen, however I also use Pilot markers (o1-0.05mm). Finally I scan in the inked illustration and add textures and colours digitally.
