REBLOG ALL THE THINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anime, comics, art and, um, Ponies. Now with a pinch of Bubbleline.
99% of the things in here were not created by me. I'm careful to always have the source added.

Here’s Quentin Blake demonstrating, step by step, how he makes the illustrations for his books.

It’s from this great page on his website, How I Draw, in which he describes the process a little more:

In the attempt to combine planning with an air of spontaneity I’ve employed various techniques of which the one I have found most successful, and have used for the last thirty years, makes use of a light box.

What happens next is not tracing; in fact it’s important that I can’t see the rough drawing underneath too clearly, because when I draw I try to draw as if for the first time.
