KeFe, Cool Creative Couple September 15 2015
Artistic couple Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock that have collaborated on a new project. They combine their artistic talents and create colorful characters full of whimsy. Today we're going to learn a quick way to create something in their quirky style!
1.) with either watercolor, acrylic, or tempra paint make some marks that make a figure.
2.) Add tiny details like hands and tray (or whatever you feel like drawing)
3.) Add details of items in a different color to add some variety.
4.) You can now outline your figure. I chose black, but if you look at their work, any color works! Pick whatever you want.
5.) Here you see some more finished line work. I've also added a fifth color, whit for some light highlights and embellishments.
6.) Finished! I ended up adding another color for the lips, and some beauty marks.You can do different things and explore different ways to make shapes and figures. just keep playing and see what works for you. As Always, we love to see what you create on our Facebook page!

Lorena is an illustrator from Bogota, Columbia. Her work is mostly character design mixed with landscapes and nature. She creates narratives within her illustrations which enhances the visual cohesiveness. This is what she has to say about her work:
"I usually begin with a simple concept that evolves into a narrative piece with multiple associations and approaches that I find through sketching. This process helps me to create elaborated pieces with a strong presence that invites the viewer to sift through their details and discover their inner tales."
