My e-Portfolio gallery of Illustrations

by John Public

Welcome to my e-Portfolio
illustrations gallery
 
This gallery presents a collection of my most significant work as an aspiring cartoonist and illustrator. It is organized in four series according to my personal interest and expertise. 

 


Series 1: Fashion

Illustration  #1

image

Designed with a special technique of watercolor, blending and ink. Which created rays of colors using Photoshop CS5. I started off drawing with thin outlines of the female characters. Then, I started adding details to each character, starting with hair first. After that process, i began adding water to the hair making a blending effect into the white space.

Series 1: Faces

Illustration  #2

One of my favorite artist's in the entertainment industry is Marshall "Eminem" Mathers. He has a unique facial structure, which led me to make a portrait of Eminem from a particular angle. First, I looked through many references inside of magazines or internet sources. I picked the one I wanted to use and started going into the structure process. I begin drawing his eyes and nose. Then, I  added some shading to start creating the lips and cheeks. I knew I wanted his face to bleed over the work, so I used lots of shading. Which gave the picture a unique dark feeling. I added some whiteout to the picture to really bring out the highlights  after I finished the inking process.
