After the voting and a little persusion, Katherine has decided on a Robin for the Christmas card she has comissioned me to do.
Step 2: sketch the final design.
Step 1 was to sketch some initial designs. The next step is come up with the final design. This is the image that will be replicated in the print. To do this more sketches must be drawn.
This time I have used colours. The colours will be replicated in the final print. The colour is built up in layers during the printing process. Keep the colouring simple and remember that every colour will require another cut and another print.
So here it is. Below is the image I am going to use for the card.
The final design.
