A quick experiment with my work + lighting.
Made these a while back and forgot to post them here, my poor neglected blog.
Made a little animation experiment today.
This old dog learned a new trick. Here's my first experiment creating a piece completely digitally. The dawn of a new era for me? Not quite yet, but who knows what the future holds. For now, this is definitely another tool at my disposal which I'm stoked about. My friend Kyle Webster makes these great Photoshop brushes and that's what I used to make this piece.
Here's some more character development for my kids book stuff.
A while back I decided to take a stab at writing & illustrating a kids book. Client work seems to come first so this little project has taken a back seat, but I work on it when I have time. So, I'm still busy dummying the book out, but did some painted tests from the character development stage. Did these back in November but forgot to post them here. Better late than never, I guess. Pretty sure this is one of those projects that I'll need to make time to work on it instead of trying to find the time.
I've bee playing around with repeating patterns lately. Basically, these are little exercises to help me think more graphically because I have some future plans for my work (like illustrating a kids book) and I need to feel more comfortable with the transition, both visually and mentally.
I painted my son's toy box this past weekend. He made me do 7 rounds of revisions. Kids are the worst Art Directors.
