Good morning fellow critters.
Just finished this dealy.
Any thoughts? It's supposed to play off this image...
There will be 3 in the end, one for each character.

and a bit of process work too.

I'm trying to make him pop from the background, is it successful?

2. Brought up contrast a lil with an adjustment layer
and moved the green fill layer to below the colours.
Hard to tell if it's now too dark in the figures!

1. Been working on this for FanExpo in August. 95%! Need
help with the last 5.

Hey Critters,

Check out Escape from Illustration Island, a resource/inspiration page run by the illustrators we both fear and love. But seriously, there's a podcast, I mean how cool is that! Also there's some really great practical advice on there about developing mailing lists and other things along that vein.

Squishy love,

Process work

A bit about the process, on the left there, I started with a pencil sketch then put color underneath it in photoshop, brought it to illustrator and did the tedious task of copying every single line carefully with the pen tool. Make sure you keep your layers in awesome order or you die a terrible, terrible death, it begins with your eyes falling out, I won't get into it.

Then I again, tediously, select each individual object and use the eye dropper tool on the color behind it to make sure that it is the right color, a process I like to call FLIPPING the image. Because you're flipping it from line to color. and then when it's all filled out I brought it to photoshop and applied textures! I also uploaded a different version of the final with colors I like a bit better.

See ya soon!


**edit, I put up a new version... hopefully that works a bit better.

Streets of Dungaree

Hi folks, doing more for Tin Canyon, trying to create more artwork for the show on August 12th, please come!

I'm having some trouble with textures, and colors I think... something seems off. Suggestions?

Oh yeah, one more thing.
