I am exploring a new style in my illustration for this article. Although the story is very serious, i tried to use a style that looks a bit childish and very playful yet still maintains a serious tone. Thus the use of pure black and a bit og reds and yellows on the necessary areas.
Egypt is concerned with the war erupting in Sudan. It's mainly about the imigrants that will be running to cross the border of Sudan to Egypt.
When i received my sketchbook late last month i got so giddy to start with the first pages. but i only started sketching early this month! hahaha i need to finish the whole sketchbook by December so that i can send it back on time for the exhibition tour.
Here are a few pages that i've started working on.
while scanning my sketches, i discovered how the light played a pretty role in my sketchbook pages as i lift each pages against the light. it was so cool to see two pages combine when the light hits the surface (like the one above). the brush strokes are so clear that it gives a really cool texture effect on my artworks.
