It’s Inktober kids, and this is where you’ll find the story…
Just in case you don’t follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any of the other social media platforms I frequent, here’s what you missed (in no particular order).
Cow joke in 4….3….2….and ACTION!
Another one from my digital illustration class. This exercise was about shading techniques in Adobe Illustrator
Just having a little fun with the old sketchbook
Approved! A sample piece I did for Nickelodeon.
I had a few pieces in my rep’s portfolio that didn’t feel right to me so I decided to rework them
These pieces felt incomplete to me so I added some line work to them
I added some color line work to them to help hold the shapes
I like where these have gone much better than the original pieces
i was messing around with a new program called Manga Studio. You’re never too old to learn new tricks.
“How To” Library series published by The Child’s World.
I thought it might be fun show you a little behind the scenes look at a few of the children’s book illustrations I did for this series of “How To” library books. You might have noticed that one of the sketches still shows the colored line technique I used to use when I sketched on paper. It’s an old art guy trick I picked up many years ago while working with Disney designed to save time. I still find it useful even though I have drawn a sketch on paper in years. These days I sketch exclusively in Photoshop using a big honking Cintiq tablet. Not being able to zoom in on my sketch seems ridiculous. I image in a few short years as new technology replaces the desktop work station we’ll look back and wonder how we ever got along without it.
