My entry for The Transformation Challenge
What programs or tools did you use?
The sketch was done traditionally as is find it easier for me to do it this way and then take a decent photo of it and import it to the computer. Everything else was done with photoshop CS6 and a Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet CTL-460.
Where did you find your inspiration for your entry?
That's a hard question for me actually, as I find inspiration for one single drawing in multiple things. Once I found the challenge in my newsfeed I knew I wanted to give it a shot. But as always, I want my entries to have a story and I try to make it believable (at least for me), so I waited until I had a good idea of what it'd be about. I finally asked myself what do I want in life and what do I want to accomplish, and I remembered the love my parents have for each other, and realised that's what it's all about. They get really cheesy sometimes and I make fun of them, but in the end that's what I want. With these characters I tried to show simple love can be. The guy gets all messy after just one morning kiss (: I guess that was my main inspiration for this particular drawing.
As for the style of the drawings and the colouring technique, I find inspiration mainly in other great artists here in DA. I wanted to keep it simple and cute, so I just thought about some artists I admire here in the site that show those qualities in their drawings often and took inspiration from them.
How long did it take to complete?
From 7-8 hours.
