This is a low-rez version of a commission I completed on Saturday. The (quick) first version wasn’t good enough for me. I knew I could do better if I just spent a little time google-ing horses. This version is proof of...

Dive Bomb

Posted on Dec 17, 2013 in Comics, Digital Ink, Digital Paint, Illustration

Seriously, if I could fly I would be playing around in the sky non-stop. I don’t think it would ever get boring. I am very happy with how this picture turned out. I probably shouldn’t have spent as much time drawing tonight as I did, but once I had the initial sketch I couldn’t resist finishing it. There are more layers than I normally...

Dinosaur Commission

Posted on Sep 19, 2013 in Comics, Digital Ink, Digital Paint, Illustration

I drew this on commission. The client was given 3 separate images, 10×10 inches each, at 720 pixels per inch. The two children are his, he sent me pictures for me to use as reference. We also went back and forth a few times so that he could give feedback on how the faces looked. It really helped the final image to resemble his children. He asked for 3...

The other colour layer was for all the other colours that I didn’t...

I have no clue who it was who suggested this one. But the request was: a Christmas tree dancing the hula. I’m assuming this is how they spend the off-season. As usual start to finish in Painter12. I started with a sketch. I used a thick liquid ink pen for main shapes, and then used a thinner pen for the details. Underneath the liquid ink layer I...

Lettuce Hear A Pun Or Two

Posted on Jul 19, 2013 in Comics, Digital Ink, Digital Paint, Doodles/Sketches, Pun

I’ve been thinking about this pun since last night. But it was only until after I started colouring that I realized I had the opportunity to add the carrot pun. I didn’t plan on using a carrot in the drawing, but I’m glad I did. I am also very happy with how the turnip’s left hand looks in ink. Steps: initial sketch with real2B,...
