Grow a Sasquatch

Last week’s prompt word on Illustration Friday was “Grow”, so naturally, I grew a Sasquatch.  Kind of a no-brainer, really.  As anyone who grew up in the 1980s knows, Sasquatches are gentle vegetarians.  (Thank you, Harry and the Hendersons.)

Photoshop is a vast ocean, a bottomless pit, of possibilities.  I feel as if I’m treading water and have only scratched the surface of this software.  I’m pretty happy with the drawing, but feel I have a lot to learn about polishing without getting too heavy handed.  For this I tried breaking layers into “painting layers”…there’s an underpainting, midtones, etc. but perhaps I should simplify.  The best part is playing and learning!

Aww, poor lonely Yeti.
