Process: G.Y.R.O.

My first illustration for 2015 started on New Year’s Eve. Flying gadgetry has always been the stuff of fascination for me, so when I ran across a contraption developed by Thomas Bird (involving an outboard motor and a ceiling fan!), my creative juices were firing on all cylinders.

Below is my ink layer, overlapped ontop of my pencil layer.


I thought it would be neat to show the pencils overplayed onto of the final piece. There weren’t any major modifications from the pencils in this particular illustration.


I took it one step further and added the pencils and inks as overlays, so you can see how they affect the final image.


And here is the complete image. My Patreon supporters can download a snazzy high resolution version.
