Word of the Week #1 Myth

Hey everyone. My name is Erik Sciarra and im a graphic designer based out of southern Ontario.
Erik James Design is my company and i provide various design services.
I'm passionate about illustration and photography.

I am going to do a series of characters and other sorts of illustrations using the word of the week!

I took a few pictures as I progressed through the illustration to show my progress.

So I decided to use the word 'myth' from the word of the week.
I chose to draw a cyclops •^)

I used pencil to layout the Cyclops first, and then eventually started to shade him with marker and ink.

I wanted to capture the depth of his his hair and beard by using my brush pen to get the line definition I wanted.

Before I took my image to the digital level I wanted to have lots of texture and shading to define the illustration further.
I was very pleased with the end result and everybody has seemed to like the digital rendering. :)

Stay tuned for more illustrations and check out my other posts !
Thank you for visiting!
