The Shape of Water (A Fan Art Piece)

I went to see The Shape of Water a couple of weeks ago at the super comfy Everyman in Chelmsford, and couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I did a weird thing for me and made some fan art. Maybe I just haven’t liked a film/ tv show/ book/ game enough to make art about it until now…

This was made using the Procreate app on my iPad Pro. I bought my iPad Pro & apple pencil a couple of years ago now and it has honestly taken me that long to even vaguely get to grips with drawing digitally. I do find it a million times better than using one of those drawing tablets without a screen though – my brain couldn’t not look at the tablet while I was drawing (derp).

I have no idea if I’m doing anything “right” still (I mean, there’s not a “right” way to make art, but ya know what I mean), but this is the first piece I’ve been happy with. I definitely think I’m getting my preferred process down, but I’m still figuring out brushes and how to make them look “natural”. Coming from a background of using physical paint etc to create art, its kind of frustrating that I can’t make things look like that yet. Keeping my fingers crossed that Kyle’s Brushes come out with a set for procreate!

Theres also a print available on my etsy shop!

Have you seen The Shape of Water? What did you think?
