Sister Sketch Exchange. The Explorers.

The latest project has been my creation for the Sister Sketch Exchange. Being that it was my turn and all 🙂 I’ve spoken a few times about this ongoing little adventure between myself and my sister. Click here and here for previous entries that explain more. Or head on over to my website for a look at that whole adventure.

This time around I wanted to add a bit of dimension so I created the images across two pages with a third in the middle acting as a flip window.

Here are a few starting process shots of the drawing being laid in and coloured on the right side of the book.

 

The part that I think makes this all very fun is the “window” page. It has a portion of the page cut away and I replaced it with a piece of acetate that I layered some wavy lines of Gel onto to create a wobbly underwater current look. It doesn’t show up in the final scans so I took a few extreme angle shots so the effect can be better seen here.

Finally here are scans of the finished works with window flipped in either direction. One side your inside the sub and the other way you floating with the fishes! 🙂
