Illustration 101


Mia is my one and half year old, beagle mix rescue puppy. She is currently the love of my life and the center of my attention. Those of you who know me well and follow me on Instagram must’ve figured out how obsessed I am with her and how I cannot seem to stop myself from clicking and posting her pictures.

As some of you might already know, I am making my baby steps into illustration/ Art-direction etc. Planning to attend art school in the fall of 2018, Applications have been submitted (finger’s crossed).

Here is an attempt at illustrating my favorite subject! MIA!

I started off by tracing

Trial and error in shading and giving a structure to the illustration

Once the overall structure was done, I worked on the details… whiskers, shadows, etcetera… and arrived at this!

Experiments on the artboard

Before-After, Photography

I am a huge fan of all the Adobe software. Until yesterday I used photoshop to edit all my pictures. Adobe Lightroom is my new discovery. I might be a little late in discovering this, in fact, this ain’t even a discovery, however, I can’t help but flaunt my love for the software.

Most of my candid shots lack the ideal light exposure and this software works great for fixing this.

Here is the photograph of adorable 80-year-old grandmother. This picture was shot on iPhone 7.
