Making off

Hi! Oh I´m so happy So many of you liked the little red lola tags!!!Thank you for participating on the giveaway! Remember I´ll announce the winner tomorrow!! Fingers crossed!

Forgive me if todays post has also something to do with my shop. It´s just that I´m very excited about it! I cant describe the feeling of  knowing my dear prints are travelling to so many different parts of the world!

It took me two years to really make it work, and I´m very happy for all that I´ve learned and accomplished. With perseverance and hours and hours of hard work! Thank you for all your support, whether if its buying or just coming here and read my blog, and leaving such encouraging comments you all make my heart sing!

So, I wanted to share with you today the little process of how I make my illustrations in three steps…( I´ve always loved to take a peek into how the artists create)

1.- Be inspired by something! A dream, nature, innocence..As you all know I love nature very much and it was my inspiration for this drawing..

hand sketched on paper with a pencil of course..

Estoy tan contenta de que os hayan gustado las etiquetas de La pequeña Lola! Gracias por participar en el sorteo! recordad que anunciaré al ganador (@) mañana!!! dedos cruzados!

Perdonadme si hoy también hablo de algo que tiene que ver con mi tienda. Pero es que estoy muy emocionada! No tengo palabras para describir la sensación de saber que mis queridas ilustraciones vuelan hacia las casas de personas en partes del mundo tan distintas…Israel, Eslovenia, Australia, Brasil, Estados Unidos..

Me llevo casi dos años hacerla funcionar y estoy muy feliz por todo lo que he aprendido y conseguido. Con perseverancia y muchas, muchas horas de trabajo! Gracias de nuevo por vuestro apoyo, ya sea comprando o leyendo mi blog o dejando comentarios siempre tan alegres y positivos! Hacéis que mi corazón cante!! : D

Así es que hoy quería compartir con vosotros el proceso de cómo hago una ilustración digital en tres pasos..(siempre me ha encantado cuando los artistas comparten el proceso de cómo crean sus obras)

1.– Inspiraros profundamente por algo! un sueño, la naturaleza, la inocencia…COom bien sabéis amo la naturaleza y fue de nuevo mi inspiración para este dibujo..

Primero lo dibujo con un lápiz en una libreta..

I dont have a scanner at home, so I take pictures with my camera and upload them to the computer.

Then I open the file of the sketch on illustrator and draw on top of it with the vectorized brushes.

No tengo un escáner en casa, así es que tomo fotos con mi cámara de mis dibujos, los subo al ordenador y abro el archivo con illustrator.Luego repaso las líneas con los pinceles de vectores.

I suppose this is how every one works..its not a “secret” but I wanted to share the process with you anyway.

Now color it with different layers and finally use photoshop for some details, like the seeds blowing away with the wind.

Supongo que así es la forma en que trabajan todos, o la mayoría..no es ningún “secreto” pero me hacía ilusión compartir el proceso con vosotros : )

Ahora lo coloreo utilizando diferentes capas y termino añadiendo algunos detalles con photoshop, como las semillas que vuelan al viento.

And voila! “Dandelion Dreams” is ready! I still love to blow this little seeds away with the wind, dont you? ; )

Y Voilá! “Sueños de Diente de León” está listo! ..Todavía me encanta cogerlos y ver como las semillas se vuelan con el viento y a tí ; )

    Such a lovely piccy and she looks just like my little one will in a few years with that lovely red hair flowing in the wind. I love to blow dandlions too but much prefer watching little sweetpea try – she even sucked one by mistake the first time she tried 🙂

    Oh Ishtar, this blog of yours is just adorable! I love how you put things in such a simple and light way…

    I just wanted to let you know that even if this is the process for every artist or almost every artist, I just think you did an excellent job, because sometimes I0m dying to know how they managed to do those things. I don’t have really a thing for drawings I guess… but maybe I should give it a try… sometimes things are not that difficult right?

    And btw, I would love to post your work in my blog, can I? With all due respect and of course credits back to your blog and Flickr! Can you please e-mail me with your answer, please?

    Thank you so much for sharing all this amazing and girly world of yours!
