A Blossoming Illustration with Tombow ABT Dual Brush Pens
In this blog post, Jessica (jessica_smith_illustration) will guide us step-by-step through the process of creating a stunning spring bloom illustration using Tombow ABT Dual brush pens. Whether you're an experienced artist seeking inspiration or a budding creative eager to explore new techniques, we assure you that this project will kindle your artistic spirit and bring a touch of spring into your art.
1) Start off by sketching out your design with a coloured pencil that is dark enough to see but won’t be too obvious when you start colouring in!
Also, now is the time to choose your spring colour palette!
2) Then take two similar colours and block in the background. I’m using lilac and pink here and sort of blending them together for a nice poppy background!
3) Using the other colours you’ve picked begin blocking in the other details, try and use colours that sit next to each other nicely and have a good amount of contrast!
4) Finally, using the thinner end of the brush pens add in all of your smaller details!
