I was ask by White Manna to do a shirt design for them and I am almost done. How does my brain work and how do i create. I always ask bands if they want a specif theme but they usually get a description of sound back. I than use those theme and listen to the music to guide me. This time I got Dragon vs Spaceship in my head and I think this will be classic reoccurring theme for years to come. I just let the music guide me. After I brainstorm I usually create outline guide. From this outline guide I let my creativity flow and the rest is pen and ink.
Currently I use a combination of micron pens , isograph pens, copic pens, and white gouache with brushes. After I spent a good time inking I ended up with this. I will scan and create a file from printing next for this project and than I will be done after editing and picking colors.
