Illustration Techniques Demo

Some of you may remember this sketch from the early days of this blog. I used it for the basis of my first day demo in my Illustration Techniques class, to show the pick-out method that was particularly popular in the 60's and 70's. It was done over the course of about 2 1/2 hours.

Hey guys, I'm obviously a bit thick. I did a quick search for this 'pick-out method' on Google but it came up with nothing relevant. Can you fill me in on the method at all?

Cheers.
Scott.

Scott, Sorry for the delay in responding, I addressed your question in today's post

hope that helps. Many illustrators used this as a finished technique, particularly in the 50's and 60's. Guys like Frazetta and J. Jones, but even more so Bernie Fuchs

Ahh that's brilliant thank you! Cheers for clearing that up for me!
