Faces From A Shape



This is a very common character development exercise - - one where you create a simple shape and then create different faces using it as a starting point.  I did these in Sketchbook Pro.

Black and White to Color



I had a little time to today to mess around with Sketchbook Pro and Photoshop and so I began experimenting with creating skin tones - - first creating them from scratch and then adding them to existing art.  I enjoy both traditional art and digital art and was looking for a way to combine them.  This image is the result - - one that you may recognize from a previous post, but with a new "old timey" skin tone enhancement.

Watercolor and Ink



This painting measures about 3"x4" and was done using a wet on wet technique for the background and then black micron pens for the trees.

Happy Father's Day!



This iPad painting was inspired by one I saw in a Will Terrell Sketchbook video.  I did one first in my sketchbook with pen and markers and then another on my iPad using Procreate.  Add a background, a couple of scaled copies and there you have it.  Everyone that has seen this painting feels it shows a heavy Dr. Seuss influence, and I agree - - he was amazing, how could you not be influenced by his work.
