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.
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.
