Unfold : IF (digital color)

i found enough time to try a digital coloring today.

Unfold : IF

This week for Illustration Friday the word is Unfold. It's going to be a busy week so i'm happy i got this done. i've been working with nib pens and really enjoying it but now i want an inkwell to make dipping easier (and less spills). The intent is to try coloring this but in case i don't end up with the time i'm gonna get it up so i feel productive =). For those who came via the static page and who might be interested, look ==>Here<== for the possibility of the colorized version later in the week.

Hope your all doing well and thanks for looking, g

And a new exhibit called Animal Houses. We spent hours running around.

Hope your enjoying your week, g

Adapt : IF ... Digital Practice

Needing a lot more skill in coloring i decided to sketch something to turned in to a way bigger thing then it was sposta. The sketch was at coffee, the inking was at lunch (and beyond), and i've just finished trying to mess around with it in Photoshop.

Next i'm going to print out a few copies on various papers and try markers on one and watercolors on another. (and for you Illustration Friday people, i'm the one Adapting to new media...i know it's a stretch ). Let me know what you think of this one.

Peace, g
