This is a piece originally intended for SCBWI’s monthly #drawthis prompt, but I got a little behind because I had other work that required my attention. Anyway, I liked the idea, and the drawing made me smile, so I wanted to finish it. This was hand drawn and digitally colored with Illustrator this time. (So if anyone needs this on the side of a bus, it can be scaled that large, without pixelating the image. I’m just saying.) There are many ways that I enjoy working, both by hand and digitally.
I continue to build up a computer style. It’s kind of fun, playing like this, but it’s also as if I’m learning to draw ALL OVER AGAIN! Suggestions? Comments? Critiques?
I doodled this in my sketchbook while I watched the new Muppets Movie last night, then played with it in Photoshop.
There is an Adobe Illustrator version of this, but then I went and “rasterized” it, and it’s all a jaggedy mess:
Yeah, not as familiar with ye’ ‘ole Adobe Illustrator…also, I prefer the original line work of my drawing rather than transforming it into vector artwork. This is only the beginning, though; it’s pretty fun to mess around with new art supplies! I’m trying to find a whole new style, almost.
