Can you draw in water? How do you do that? How do they come up with that idea?
So the idea came to me at some dinner I had with two of my high school buddies who were actually very good in water-based drawing. They were drawing little drawings that they’d made of various fish shapes in water. I think they called it fish swimming. They were doing some research online, and they’re like, “Let’s take that and work out to water.” So then I started using the pencil tool. It was a tool I’ve never used but now, because I’m using Watercolor, it becomes a little bit lighter because there’s some of that white so I got that watercolor feel. And my eyes were getting bigger because I didn’t draw with pencil, I was creating using Watercolor and the tools that went with it because it was really light and easy to do; you just use your fingers and draw with one finger and then your second finger will move up and down. So, it was a lot like water, but this is a drawing for kids when they’re little, a little more like drawing with a ballpoint pen or something.
The pencil technique comes from the same book; it’s a thing in the water, but it’s really not the water at all that I did because it worked perfectly the first time for a kid, so that’s the thing that’s different and I had to really hone in on the things that I wanted, because I was working over the years with some professional illustrators and I wanted them to be great artists that I could work with. And I just knew I wasn’t going to be able to work with a book like that because it’s hard to make something look good in pencil, so I had to figure out to draw it for a computer. Because it’s not in the water, so I wasn’t drawing what I was drawing as a kid, but what it looked like on a black sheet of paper in a dark room. But I don’t like the idea of a book where it’s black and not on a paper so I had to figure out that as well.
The water technique is the thing that I use now and I’ve been using it for about 20 years, so I can say it is the most simple thing I’ve ever done. As long as I can see, draw, sketch, color, I know it’s what I want, so my goal was to go from water to pencil, to water to digital
