Canoe & Kayak Magazine Photo Editor Aaron Schmidt commissioned me to illustrate an article written by Todd Wells, for May 2014 issue.
 
This was a fun project with cool challenges like painting the night time and the water.

Close up on the sneaky kayakers!
The illustration as it was used in the magazine.
Process:
I started with a couple sketchs in the computer, which i sent to the photo editor, so he could give his opinion.
 
Rough digital sketch.
After the sketch was approoved, i printed it, and drew the final version, using a light table to the early stages of the pencils.
Final pencils, on a A3 sheet of paper.
I inked it using a brush, andi scanned it.
Colors were added in the computer, with a wacom tablet.
Inking the foreground.
Thank you for visiting!
 
All the best!,
