Luca Raffaelli asked me to create an illustration for the 2017 edition of "La Città Incantata" official poster. "La città incantata" is an international animation film festival in Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy, featuring the cream of the crop of the worldwide animation production.
Here is a quick process breakdown.
I started with a digital sketch:
Then I traced it as an hard black lumograph pencil drawing on 300gsm hot pressed Fabriano Artistico, 30,5 x 45,5 cm. This passage ensures the best possible stroke dynamic range and texture. (For sale in my store)
Then I added color in Photoshop.
