That Little Glow

Just sent final art off to a client. Feels good to have accomplished some illustration work before 7am on a Monday. That Little Glow. 

It isn't the pic below though: can't show everyone yet!

Playing with Watery Trilobites

Been really enjoying painting with my new ArtRage 4 - and I find myself just addicted to messing with the images with various filters in the Halftone app afterward. 

So, that painting I made the other night when I couldn't sleep?  This one?


Yeah; underneath some of the layers it actually started out as more of just a watercolour. 

The shape is a bit different because I painted two layers and then hid this one.

And then I decided to email it to myself, save to my iPhone and play with it in Halftone. 
Here's some watery trilobites. 

I've really been enjoying black, grey and stark white images lately. 

If you haven't tried ArtRage before, I highly recommend it: the watercolours and inks have me hooked and the oil mixing is amazing. Perfect for traditional painters making a transition to digital.

Sketches Better Than Paintings

Sometimes I wonder if the sketches look better than the paintings. 


Trilobite Boy with Gargoyles - sketch.

Trilobite Boy with Gargoyles - complete. 

There's something about the scratchiness of it I don't usually retain in the finished pieces. That's why I think I'm enjoying drawing and then placing the original drawing over the digital painting on a multiply layer. I'm catching the scratchiness a bit better. 


Avimimus - pencil drawing.

Avimimus - painted using the Sketch Club app on my iPhone.
