Childhood Nostalgia: Jen Mundy
The things that really inspired me to start drawing when I was a kid were probably the same types of things that any 90’s kid was into— Sailor Moon, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, The Last Unicorn…. etc. The challenge for me on this particular piece was figuring out a way to get all of my inspirations into one drawing!
Initial sketch was done digitally, then blown up, printed out, and taped together. I then used a light box to get the image transferred to Stonehenge paper (as you can see in the gif) using a red Colerase pencil. (I did this because I didn’t want my washes of paint to muddy up the lineart and I was afraid that would happen if I used graphite.) After I had transferred the image, I did washes of acrylic and topped some areas with gouache. Finally I outlined the graphic smoke/cloud with a gold calligraphy pen, and mounted the painting to illustration board.
