    Thanks Agnes! All digital, pleased to hear it doesn’t look it as that’s what I was going for :)

    This is so cute! Do you use any specific brushes in photoshop for these or just pen pressure with a Wacom?

    I use LOTS of different ones, some that I’ve made and some that I’ve downloaded over the years.
    I just bought these this week which are really great. I also have this set and this one is also one of my favourite freebies.

    Thanks Rafa! Copied and pasted from above:

    I also layer watercolour textures on top, I’ve built up a little library of scanned in textures that I throw in there for a bit more on an organic feel, like in the trousers above :)

    I am so in love with your work! It seriously amazes me how so many of your illustrations don’t look digital at all but totally are. Whatever your doing, your doing it right :)

    Thanks! I started this as a sketch on the Galaxy Note 10 and finished it off in Photoshop with a Cintiq tablet :)

  7. I love the subtle texture. Doesn’t look digital at all.
