Up in the Air; A Teddy Bear Tale Concept Illustration by Nick Davis

If you’ve been following me on Twitter you know I have spent the day working on a fun whimsical concept illustration using the Teddy Bear Tale characters. The illustration which I have called Up in the Air features Tristan, Wilma and Archer floating along with the aid of balloons. I often work on a concept illustration to help fuel the creative writing process and quite often what appears on the drawing board makes it way into a story.

In this case Up in the Air was a creative fuel moment and a chance for me to try out my new Derwent Inktense pencils; they work like watercolor pencils, and allow me to layer colors to make for smooth blending and shading. The texture is a little different and the result is the colors are more vibrant than watercolor. You can view the creative stages below.
