Dapper Deco Style


Here's my second drawing from "Learn to Draw Art Deco Style, Vol 2" by Karen Campbell. Not only did I have the detailed instructions on how to use the Quadrant Method of drawing this character in the book, but also a detailed explanation to help me color him in using Copice Markers! To get the tweed fabric look, I started first with vertical and then horizontal strokes!


I used Karen's Quadrant Method to first draw on tracing paper guide lines and then drew detailed on scrap paper. I used my light pad to transfer all the detail onto my X-Press It Blending Card.


I drew over my pencil lines with a Micron Pen. I used Copic Markers for his suit, hat shoes and skin. I used a Gelly Roll Pen for highlights.

I love how this dapper fellow came out and look forward to more work in these books.
