You guys know that my brother and I have been working on our cat book. Each page takes a while.
You start with a rough sketch:
On top of it you create a cleaner sketch:
And then you keep adding details. Some things you can draw from memory. But if you are unsure how something looks you find references and take photos of things that you want to add. Here I took a photo of a plant spray bottle and then drew it:
I googled strawberries and then sketched them too using photos as references:
I searched for various plants and flowers for inspiration:
And I even used one of my designs with two cats and added them to the image:
And that’s how the whole drawing is made 🙂
