    Painted Verse #40
  • Illustration #40 is inspired by Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things, through Christ who gives me strength." Crafted with love and care, I created this piece for  my personal project - Painted Verses. I had so much fun playing around with colors, textures and types.  Drawing the tiger the was a laborious but exhilarating process.  

    As part of the Painted Verses series, the piece expresses the scripture visually through a combination of disciplines and media inlcuding illustration, typography, traditional and digital media.  

    For this piece, I started with a compositional sketch on a small drawing pad.  I also played around with the color palette at this stage. After I'm satifised with the sketch, I moved on to a 17"x22" bristol paper and began the process of drawing and inking. When the ink dried, the illustration was scanned and colored on Photoshop.  I also added texture and did some minor cleanup. You can scroll down to see the final product.
