Hello there and welcome to the iCC blog. Here I will keep up to date with any new work that has been posted to the site, plus anything else I want to write/type about, lol. Like today for instance, I had fruit, yogurt and granola for breakfast :D. I did some web updating for a client of mine which I will be posting new work soon. Anything that comes to my sporadic mind I will let you know.
This week I will be working on some of my illustrations and some anatomy studies. I will share my studies with you in another post.
Doing these types of drawing exercises are very important if you want to become an illustrator/artist, among other things. "Practice is key!" Being a freelancer you are sometimes bogged down with so much work that you have no time for your own work. Dedication is another key point. Even if it's 15-20mins out of your day, do some doodling to keep your creative mind fresh.
Another good tip, try to carry with you a small note book or sketch book that you can write or draw any ideas that come to mind so you don't forget. What I like to do is have pictures for reference and inspiration. If I see something in a magazine for example, a technique, a certain texture or colour, etc, I'll rip it out and jot down some notes of why I picked it.
I have anatomy books from when I was in college and I still use them to this day. They have great detail and step-by-step illustration that can help you learn and understand the full human body.
Here are the top three I like to use,
Do you have any favorites you like to use? If you would like to add your favorite anatomy books please comment below.
Thanks for reading!
