Eve's Illuminations

Hello!

I've done WDEs a fair bit and poked my head into a few forums, but I'm starting to work seriously (and trying to *commit* to working seriously) on an illustrated/illuminated (hence the thread title) book or books of poetry and short prose and wanted somewhere to share many images related to the project in a single thread.

I've bought a 6x9, 240-page Flexi-Sketch sketchbook for the purpose. I expect to use a variety of dry media and markers. Here's an extremely quick quickie with a 10-color ballpoint pen to start off:

And, for something with at least a bit more technique involved (albeit not necessarily successfully):

A nice idea evebart. I like the hand with the with the heart pendant - the minimal colour works well.

Re: Eve's Illuminations

Another quickie, but may well try something large and nicer with this theme at some point. I call it Courting the Void.

These are all so good. You're off to a great start with your sketchbook, trying out ideas and dreams. Do a little every day and it gets much easier.
Bravo!

Re: Eve's Illuminations

Thanks! inspirations and ideas, not final products, but the art portion of this project has gotten the least work so far, and I find it a bit intimidating, so Iím starting slowly

Re: Eve's Illuminations



Ba-a-ad effort at a Klee-like city (inspired by the WDE)óI think it was okay until I started the burnt orange sky. I still find it interesting. May be something later today too.

I seem to be alternating between sketches with a reference and without. I may make this official.
