A little fairy

a fairy illustration by andi wilkinson

I created this fairy illustration using pen & paper, a scanner and photoshop. When doing any kind of digital illustration I start with a pen and paper. Despite the fact my paper efforts usually look diabolical, They do end up pretty cool.

First, I scribbled a doodle on to paper and then scanned into Photoshop. I used the pen tool to create the bold lines. Next I added colour with and shade with the various paint tools. I created the background using a mixture of crisp elements and blur effects.

After a few hours I ended up with the cute little fairy illustration here. To see more of my creative work follow this link

I take loads of inspiration from Computer Arts Magazine

When I’m not doodling, I work as a creative designer & web developer at Made By Factory.
