Bigfoot snoozing–it’s NATURE!

Digital, Inspiration

Bigfoot sleeps in nature. Nancy Lemon, illustrator

So, I got my Illustration Friday topics mixed up–this week was “Growth” and I thought it was “Nature”.  Whatevs…it’s still Friday!  I got some new (free) Photoshop brushes that I am playing with here, along with some paper texture…wheee.  I think this weekend I will need a vacation from screens, but this was fun to make.  I love Illustration Friday–they are a great community and always keep me inspired.  I highly recommend the website to anyone interested in graphic design and illustration.

Lonely Hearts Club in the Woods

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.
