Introducing Bright Artist Sam Prentice

20 November 2020

When I start on a new project, I’ll usually be taking inspiration from something I’ve seen on Instagram or something I’ve watched. I try to keep my finger on the pulse of what’s going on in pop culture to keep my ideas fresh. I’ll then use Photoshop and my Wacom drawing tablet to sketch out my idea, this stage is usually an absolute car crash of me messing around with shapes and proportions until I get something that I find dynamic and compelling. Picking out colour schemes is one of my favourite things to do, at this point I’ve kind of honed my pallet to about 9/10 colours that I use in combination.
