Here’s “foxed” my piece for this week’s Illustration Friday topic “Puzzled”. How does she do that?
It’s line drawing on semi transparent paper over a collage. In a crazed break (well, ok not crazy, but I’m trying to sound rock n roll!) with tradition I scanned the two pieces separately and put them together digitally. I worry sometimes that the colours get a little lost when I scan or photograph the whole thing as a piece. The colours are meant to be muted that’s why I use the overlaid paper, but not too fuzzy.
I think this seems to have worked pretty well, it looks fresher. I’d love to hear anyone else’s thoughts on it?
Here’s a snap of the whole thing as a piece for comparison:
And of the line drawing on its own
