The research is coming to an end, I finished the lineart, printed it on a bigger paper and I am now ready for the painting process. Here are some more gnomes, full figure this time. I settled for a 2,5 – 3 heads tall. The last picture is the lineart which I drew in a A5 sized area. Leaving a space around the illustration for perspective lines and other marks is a neat idea I learned from the process of the artist James Gurney. Keeps the lines out of the way and after I draw them I don’t need to worry anymore about finding vanishing points drawn at the other side of the desk!
