Burning to ashes isn’t exclusively a bad thing, as to rebuild you must sometimes restart from zero.
Keeping in mind to be careful not to let it go to one’s head and loosing hope, reaching the point where burning is a good thing doesn’t have to be damaging but instead, a learning experience. By choosing not to forget what lead to that situation and building again with better knowledge will definitely ensure steadier foundations!
These are stills from the video process that we posted on instagram for the Politeness in Declining Illustration. Posting a video on WordPress is now a premium feature and it’s not possible to embed Instagram links either, so we are left with the option of leaving you with a link:
This work was done on a software called Clip Studio Paint EX, which allows you to automatically save the progression of your work (after enabling the option, of course) and that makes everything so much easier to share. And that for us counts as an instant win!
Sometimes you have to engage in conversation to convey your feelings, even if what you really wish to say is that today is not the day and you are not the one… It’s a great skill to have when one can decline politely but there’s always that small nanosecond where your expression speaks for itself. It’s not a bad thing, maybe?
And today we wrap this illustration by sharing with you the linework version. We made sure to leave that soft gradient to ensure that the lovely mood still exudes from every pixel on your screen. Ideally everyone finds someone that looks at them the way Mark and Lira do here (pets included).
