The Art of Heikala: Works and thoughts (book review)



hello everyone today I have another beautiful art book to show you this is the art of hey kala works and falls this is a hundred and fifty two page hot cover art book published by 3d total this book features the artworks of hey color an illustrator based in Finland who works mostly with inks and what color and this book is made possible thanks to our Kickstarter campaign it successfully funded no surprises because hey Carla's Instagram page shows that she has close to 1 million followers so I'm pretty sure the Kickstarter campaign was very successful so in this book this is the behind process book on how she creates her own where she gets an inspiration why did she get into art and graphic design in the first place so while these are actually very beautifully drawn and drawn illustrations she doesn't like to draw digitally so all these are actually painted with inks and watercolor her style is a blend of enemy and mission and children book drawing style but there is a lot of very strong storytelling elements behind it wrong so it's not just like a pretty drawing there is actually some story behind so there is a lot of text in this book where she shares her creative process on how she comes up with ideas how she pins and there are some tutorials step-by-step tutorials that she when she talks about her processing great detail there is one tutorial on watercolor there's another tutorial on inks and there is one final tutorial on creating a pin which we didn't show you later on so her use of colors it's very masterful you can see the how does a very vibrant and I really love her style she has a very nice children book style is a few pages of her character sketches in her sketchbook so these have different pages some of these lacerations are actually quite detailed some sure they must have taken a very long time to draw especially when you go through the tutorials and you read read about a process it's very it's a very lengthy process to creating illustrations like this so here she talks about her style on how she developed her style on how she actually looks for style but eventually it's actually the style deck looked for her so it's something that develops over time is not something that you can just develop yourself it takes a long time and that section there that whole lengthy section there really is very insightful so for those people who are searching a foil style it shouldn't be too stressed out if you cannot find a start because your style will find you something so this are some graphic design work and these are some illustrations some background wrongs that she created for a short animation so for the last few pages we have the tutorials this is the one that I talked about on watercolor so she would do some pencil sketching and trace the drawing onto watercolor paper and then apply some masking fluid whenever necessary draw ink and then paint she also likes to use a lot of layers for illustration so again this is very time-consuming but the result looks really beautiful so this tutorial is it's on ink ink drawing this drawing here this was actually done in procreate on the iPad so she can draw digitally just as she prefers to draw traditionally because she prefers hand-drawn look as well as the few of drawing on paper and this is the that tutorial this is on creating a pin so to create your own pin you have to come up with a design and then find someone to make the pin for you and in this tutorial she gives you some tips on what are the colors that you can use yeah so that's it this book that I have here this is actually a review copy from 3d total publishing I just want to share with you because I believe some of you may like this style of drawing the official retail price is us $35 I'm sure you can get it cheaper on Amazon and Book Depository the feelings are in the video description below and if you buy it through those links I get a small Commission at no extra cost to you so thanks for watching this book review check out all the books that I have reviewed from the YouTube playlist that is listed also in the video description below bye
