Week 9: Baking

Hello everyone! This week for my 52 week illustration challenge my topic is baking. I was originally going to just draw a cupcake with swirly icingĀ and go into detail. Then I remembered that I am an illustrator and should be telling some sort of story with art, so I used a few techniques I’ve developed recently. After using skillshare.com for a days I’ve learned so much! I feel like within a week I’ve vastly improved. So If you want to learn anything arty; be it digital, web design, painting or drawing, they have like over 10,000 lessons and you get your first month free!

I went completely random this week and drew a Muffin baking cookies. I almost took it to a sinister place by giving the muffin a face, but I kind of like the cute vibe it has now. I started off with just using pencils, then I photographed it, put it on Photoshop and coloured it all in. I added a few shadows and little tonal touches.
