So I finally did a bunch of scanning last night and decided to sit down today and start coloring this image. I had a lot of fun doing this and ended up working until I finished it up. This is again for my Ducks in Planes idea, but instead of sticking to the old photograph look I decided to do some actual colour. I will say that I am enjoying photoshop a lot more and look forward to making more images using the program.
This is the first painting I've done in about a year now. I normally spend about a few hours a day over about a week on a still life with a set light source, but for this painting I spent about two hours on it and painted outside. It was a lot of fun, and a great experience. Hopefully I don't wait another year to do another painting.
I've slowly been puttering away at this in Photoshop. I'm not the biggest fan, but after finding out how to change my brush around, I've slightly changed my mind about the program. I still prefer real paints but anyway, here's my colour version for my Ducks in Planes. I wanted it to have an old worn out photograph feel to it. I may play around with some more colours in it and see what happens. Enjoy!
Now a days, I feel like everyone's got some sort of zombie related idea, but nevertheless, there's nothing I like more than killing zombies. This is the hero for a graphic novel idea I've been pondering since last Superbowl. I want the characters and designs to be similar to the Metal Slug video game series. This is the design I settled on for the hero of the book. More zombie stuff to follow.
A few drawings I did while on a trip to the zoo. The little monkeys were tons of fun but moved super fast. It was tough trying to capture them jumping around, but once I focused in, I was alright. Hope you like them!
I've slowly been developing the look for one of my graphic novel ideas. Here's one of the first drawings I've done for it so far. I've also got a few expressions for what will probably be the main character of my story. Enjoy!
