WIP Astronomy Walkers Sketchbook Prop – 4

0173

It’s generally easier to work from top to bottom, so that I don’t need to be cautious of smudging the artwork below. Also, the shape of the branches on the top dictates what the shape of the trees and shrubs will be at the bottom.

It takes a while, even with charcoal, to build up an intense black while keeping certain details white. It was fun isolating the white of the paper to make branches come out.
