How to be quick on the draw!

Helen emailed me with the following: My biggest concern is how to speed up the illustrating process. For example, I sketch out my ideas, outline them, and then color them in the computer. However, one drawing can take from 30 minutes to 6 hours, depending on the complexity. ? ?My goal is to draw half the time I usually do. Any tips?? Watch the video to see what I think. Why not add your own ideas below? I use Rotring Tikky pencils and Tikky Graphic pens with some paper called CS2 that I don't think you can get any more. (I got a huge pack when they went out of business!) in this drawing. winsor and newton watercolours and daVinci Kolinsky sable brushes from Cornelisssesn in London Find out more about me and my books at my website and my apps at Look me up on Amazon or in your local bookstore. I've illustrated over 200 books in my time! Enjoy!
