Commission for a gift


This #caricature #commission is a #gift for the best man at a forthcoming wedding. It illustrates the perils of driving 'old school' British cars abroad. The drawing was created in Sketchbook on a #SurfacePro 4 tablet. There are four layers to the drawing. The first, which is hidden, is a rough layout. This was done in a very light grey, so that it would not dominate the second layer, which is the black outline. Between these layers I added a third, which was the block shading. And finally, the fourth layer was the the airbrush-style addition of shadows and highlights to make the central parts of the composition stand out.
