My goal is to create beautiful Illustrations and design engaging characters and story based Illustrations.
My name is Christine Garner. I’m a digital painter and Illustrator working on character and story based Illustration projects based in Shropshire, UK.
The mediums I like to use vary from traditional to digital. I have a love of drawing and I usually make my first sketches and ideas traditionally in my sketchbooks, then scan them into my computer to further experiment and design with. I’ve been practicing digital painting since 2005.
I taught myself how to use vector art and make seamless patterns in 2016 which is a useful tool in my arsenal, and I’ve been learning 3D modelling and sculpting in 3D software (Blender, 3D Coat) since 2018. I have an interest in cutout animation and I’m designing my own stories and content to create little animated Illustrations. Keeping up and learning about different creative technologies and how I can incorporate them into my process is one of my passions.
I have also been writing content for a publication I started on Medium called The Art Squirrel since 2016, sharing my experiences and any tips I come across.
