hi priya, just arrived on your blog, i happen to be an illustrator too. lovely work.
i'm always curious about the rendering and finish in illustrations i see, what medium do you use for these?
are these hand drawn and digitally inked, or created off a tablet?
would love to know.

Also, in case you use the tablet, do you visualize the basic drawing on paper first and then translate it?
or are these infact hand painted!?

Hey Dyuti , I have drawn /painted all of it by hand and then I scanned it . In this case I haven't used a tablet at all . I actually almost never use the tablet to draw .. I find my hand is never steady enough. I use it to colour stuff however. So, I usually ink outlines of most of these drawings , scan them and then fill in colour.
Hope i've answered your queries well enough :)
