Arlequim, Servidor de Dois Amos

Poster design and Illustration for the play "Arlequim, Servidor de Dois Amos", performed by the students at ESEC University, in Teatrao Theatre.
I had to follow Teatrão's Graphic style, so the illustration was the part where i had more freedom.
I made the illustration with brush and ink on paper, scanned it, and colored it digitally.
For more info on the play, but in Portuguese, go here,

And now some little details of the process.
To start, the Thumbnail of for the Illustration.


Now the final drawing and inked drawing.

Some closeups on the drawing.
Close up!

The mask!

And finally, all the elements of this project.
The thumbnail, the inked drawing, the printed poster and flyer.


Hope you enjoy my little talk about my process.
Take care,

God?, originally uploaded by boredomsketch.

I was interviewed by Eloísa for TugaMagazine and she challenged me to draw a portrait of God.
I have to say it was a hard one, because i only had a few hours, but i had a lot of fun with it.
I used watercolors, no sketching at all, because the medium allowed me to discover shapes without controlling too much. After a few washes, i painted gouache over the watercolors and finally scanned it and added a few color corrections and that was it.

Thank you Eloísa! You can read the interview she made, but only in portuguese, here,
Here are some photos of my table where i was working.


On the left side of the photo you can see the plate where i mixed my watercolors, and on the right side, my palete for gouaches. I've used Winsor and Newton watercolors, Carand d'ache gouaches, painted with Winsor & Newton Cotman series, and the brush on top of the sketchbook is a sable hair brush, but it doesn't have a brand.
Finally, the paper is a Canson watercolor Sketchbook, 300gr.
And now a close ups on the painting.

Closer to God

Now i want to paint more Gods!

I hope you enjoy it and i'll waiting your opinions and critiques!
