Process: End Pages for The Shattering (wt).

As mentioned in my post yesterday, I had forgotten to draw the end pages to go along with a layout draft of a new personal project, The Shattering (working title). The purpose of this post is to show the working process and a list of materials used. 

Like the other dummy illustrations of the book, this picture was drawn with watercolour and graphite pencil, watercolour paint and china graph pencils on 150gsm watercolour paper. 

One half of the end page illustration is visible above. It was sketched with green watercolour pencil before a graphite outline and a wash of watercolour was applied. I used a Staedler china graph pencil to return the highlights to the hatching. 

The picture took about two hours to complete including drying time (forty degrees is good for something after all) with most time consumed by the hatching.
