I’m Rosie and I am a freelance Illustrator living in the North of England. I started freelancing in the second year of my illustration degree, when I was commissioned to design the character mascot for an exhibition at my local museum. My dream is to become a children’s (and grown-up’s!) book illustrator, nothing is more magical than a book, and I have been in love with narrative illustration from a very early age.
I was very happy when I was asked to provide a creative insight, so lets start at the beginning with my desk..
Now to show you how I produce my digital paintings for the ‘Cassius and Gustav’ web comic..
When the base colours are done, I have a wonderful time adding shade and highlight to the characters, to really bring them into the world I have created for them. I loved doing the highlight in this painting, as it was a beautiful eerie blue colour- magical!
So there it is, a quick insight into my digital paintings. You can follow the Cassius and Gustav webcomic here: cassiusandgustav.com
