This art was created with colored pencils on bristol board paper.
Colored pencils require many layers of colors until I reach the desired effect or outcome. Then I use a "Blender Pencil" to blend these many layers of colors. You can see the before picture at the bottom.
I had just started to blend the walls of the attic.
The author thought the girl's hair should hang loose, I added more hair, but I really want the hair tied back so we could see the tilt of her head. Now I have too much hair. And I have an even number of trolls - I like odd numbers. Back to the drawing board.
I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world.
This is the most comprehensive list of Top 40 Collage Blogson the internet and I’m honored to have you as part of this!
Needless to say I was quite surprised and honored. Especially considering the huge number of fabulous blogging collage artists that I was in competition with. And, as you can see from my blog, collage is only one of many forms of art that I create.
Thank you FEEDSPOT !
To celebrate, I will share some of my favorite collages. Most have already been featured on my blog. I also included many collages in my book, ART JOURNAL, available on Amazon.
The author had a visual in her head of how she wanted the cover to look. This is a self published book, so I am able to meet with the author and try to create what she wants. I am just a tool for her. This is not about me creating art, it's all about creating for the author. In the publishing world, I think the author and artist never meet, let alone talk about the work.
After seeing my first drafts, the author wanted this scenario - the girl sitting in a sideways position and looking in the box. The trolls needed to be squatty and ferocious and no trees.
