Bully illustration (part 3)

So continuing on from the last post… The men’s style “bully illustration”
I start putting the watercolour on. I tend to work one area at a time and stared with the little boys face, then on to those hammers. I work in layers working usually from light to dark.
Watercolour in progress, bully illustration
Then working up the hammers. I know there is going to be some graffiti in the background to echo those angles from the hammers so I’m not worried about them getting to dark.

Finally the graffiti and the brick work which i did with a wash then cut in the lines with a scalpel to get highlights.
