Adapting 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea part IX. From sketch to illustration

There’s not much to say about these – you’ll have to play the game if you want to know more – but I’m always fascinated by how artists turn their ideas into images and this is my very basic two step system.

The above image was inspired by my upbringing on industrial Teesside, my comprehensive school would task us with painting the…
