Just finishing this one up today from the Boys' Life story I am working on. I may adjust some of the shadows a little but for the most part I like it. I posted the preliminary sketch here. Having a well worked out value drawing definitely seems to speed up the painting phase. I spent about four or five hours rendering this in Photoshop. I am hoping the opening spread comes together as quickly since I have about five deadlines that are one on top of the other at the moment.
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.
