one woman's view into a world of creativity

Children’s Art in Realism

A friend directed me to The Monster Engine, by illustrator Dave DeVries.  He envisioned transforming children’s simple sketches into fully realized images full of color, texture, and depth:

 The process is simple. I project a child’s drawing with an opaque projector, faithfully tracing each line. Applying a combination of logic and instinct, I then paint the image as realistically as I can. My medium is mixed—primarily acrylic, airbrush, and colored pencil.

He did an entire series this way, interpreting children’s art into finished products.  You can see them here.
