I just received a new shipment of my favorite pens, and though I typically only use black, I always like to try out one of the 100’s of available colors. This time around, I tried this delicious Red/Brown color. Go imagination!
Hi-Tec C Pen on paper. ~25 minutes
Here is another sketch from my flower-as-an-elderly-man kick. Sometime I would like to do a real painting of one of these.
30 minutes. Pencil on cardboard. With 5 minutes of color added in Photoshop.
I have been taken recently by the idea of flowers personified as wizened old men, caring for and preparing fruit for harvest, so when my friend asked me if I could do some drawings for a new tattoo, I imediately came up with this. We will see how he likes it.
If he likes this, I will tweak it and maybe add some color. I may add color, even if he doesn’t!
Pencil and Paper ~2 hours.
This is the underlay for an illustration I am doing for my wife’s book on stage design and theater production. I haven’t really done much costume design before, but this has been pretty fun.
Corel Painter ~1.5 hours (including thumbnails)
This is a quick one from my sketchbook.
Pencil on paper. 5-6 minutes.
This is a tiny sketch I did while helping my wife set up for her art opening in Memphis this weekend. I believe it will be the beginning of a much more detailed illustration.
Pilot HI-TEC-C pen on paper. 15 minutes.
Typically I am not the type to rush right out and buy the latest version of every software license I own. I find that I can wait 2 or more generations on things before it becomes necessary to buy an upgrade. And so, when Painter released Painter 11 a while back, I didn’t give it much thought, but today I finally got around to giving it a try. I have been very happy with Corel Painter 10, but this blew me away! It was so much closer to the control of natural hard media that when I finished this rough sketch I did a double take at the clock. 15 minutes is much closer to what I would spend if this were an actual pencil or charcoal sketch. Color me happy! I can’t wait to try out something more substantial in this program.
Corel Painter 11. 15 minutes!
Here is an excerpt from my sketchbook as I am traveling in Boston for work this week.
Good old Pen on 6″x8″ paper. 15-20 minutes.
This is a scan of a page from my little 5″x8″ sketchbook that I did yesterday while I was eating with my wife. We are such art dorks!
