I wondered how I was going to use colour in my drawing initally and this image below is my first colour experiment. I felt the laborious nature of ‘colouring in’ took away the energy I wanted to convey in my work, maybe this realistic use of colur wasn’t the best solution? It was beginning to look more like comic or graphic novel work rather than reportage illustration ( with a twist!). Key in my decision to mix things up colour wise again was a tutorial, reflecting on work I had done in practice 1 was more along the lines of developing my style. While the piece below was aesthetically pleasing in some respects, it didn’t represent my signature style or push me in that direction…and this is what I needed to stand out from the vast pool of illustrators!
