More with the food. Illustration Friday's theme this week is Breakfast, so thought I'd fiddle with some "morning" food. Still experimenting. On this one I did the lettering with the pencil tool (Photoshop).
On this one I used the brush tool for the type, and added a background.
Same here, and just got crazy with the color.
I'm also still working on developing my digital 'look' for kids. For this one I took an old very tightly rendered colored pencil piece, and redrew part of it in this new style. And I like it so much better. Its fresh and light and clean.
I love to draw, and want these pieces to look like I sat and drew the scene 'live'. I'm finding I have to 'warm up' to draw well (like I do if I'm at a figure drawing session or something), even though I'm technically drawing-over something I've worked out pretty tightly. Does that make sense? I don't want the piece to look 'traced'. So I'm thinking like I do when I draw live, which requires a different set of brain cells than I use when I go sort of numb and trace something. I want the line quality to be alive and interesting, which means there will be 'stray' lines, just like there would be if I were drawing from a model.
I've said too much. I'll do more, and hopefully you'll get what I mean.
Yesterday it was 106 here. omg. Even with a/c, this is how it feels.
