This one is finally finished. One more on this project for Boys' Life magazine and then I'll send it out, but I thought I'd post this one. I am continuing to get more comfortable with the digital tools as I go. Still a lot to learn and the time frame is not yet down to the speed that I expect, but I think I am getting there. Here again I scanned in my finished drawing and painted over the top. Some of my friends work straight onto the computer with no preliminary drawing, but I am not there yet. It still doesn't feel natural to just push pixels around on the screen instead of respond to all the tactile stimuli you get with real paint, but it's not as stiff as it used to be. Slow but steady I guess
I have been making art for as long as I can remember. These days I work in acrylic paint or Photoshop when creating illustrations for magazines, children's book publishers and advertising clients. I have even been given some cool awards for it. Lately, I am loving oil painting out of doors and for galleries.
