I’m not sure about this one…is there too much wild color going on? Just experimenting with layers of marks: some ink, some pens, some pencil. Then, as I do, coloring in Photoshop. I felt like I was getting into a “palette rut” for awhile, and have tried to get out of my comfort zone lately by using much brighter colors than I used to. The process is fun; I hope I never stop playing!
I drew this in my sketchbook some months past, and thought I would spruce up in the Photoshop.
For this Illustration Friday, I decided to keep playing with the Wacom and Photoshop, so I drew and inked a sketch, then played with color and brushes in the computer. I really like the way this process has been going, and the palette is very unlike my usual earthy tones. It’s definitely good to get out of the comfort zone.
I’ve been working on promos this week, and trying to get better about doing quarterly mailings. Here are the postcards to be sent (once they arrive from moo.com).
A little explanation, if you like: I illustrated my daughter, who really loves to twirl in the living room when music is playing.
