I realized I should get some practice drawing interior spaces, so I dreamed up this little illo of some siblings embroiled in a fierce game of pretend. I do think I started to find fun in the background elements – I liked the storytelling I could accomplish by adding toys/clutter/etc.
It’s based on a watercolor piece I did a few months back:
Bit of ink & watercolor silliness. I find that when I try to do pieces for my portfolio, I always overthink & make them so much more complex than they need to be. I’m wondering if maybe I explore some ideas with traditional media, where I usually keep things pared down anyway, maybe I can keep that looseness if/when I do a “real” (digital) version for my portfolio.
Hilariously I write in that caption that I sometimes overthink/overcomplicate things when I go digital, which I’m pretty sure is exactly what happened here anyway! At least I know myself!
