color demo for my summer class


This was a demo for direct color storyboards, I went over the techniques I use and the materials as well. This was done with Copic markers, Col-Erase Pencils, Jelly Roller Pens and Acrylic paint with a last tweak in Adobe Photoshop.

Dr. Sketchy's was all about the drag this month!


This session was a real blast and as you can see, I was having fun with the costuming and gender-bender theme.

alchemy madness....


I've posted about this process before, the piece was done with Alchemy 7.0 and finished with a touch of color and texture in Adobe Photoshop

Above is the initial alchemy sketch for some sort of mech


and here it is after some work in Corel Painter Essential 2.0, I actually think the original sketch is more powerful though. Get Alchemy Alpha 7.0 here, it's free and open source, so you have no excuses.
