365 Days to Digital Mastery – Day 53: Election Time

365 Days to Digital Mastery – Day 53: Election Time

It’s that time of the year and I can’t stop hearing about Trump. So I’ve chosen to do my own homage to the 24/7 news cycle with my version of the man of the hour on the election trail. Generally I shy from politics, but I couldn’t help it.

365 Days to Digital Mastery – Day 52: Black and White Study

365 Days to Digital Mastery – Day 52: Black and White Study

Sorry about the quality of yesterday’s post folks. Hopefully that was a blip. I’ve been getting pretty worn down with that particular style, so I think I’ll mix it up a bit. Today’s Procreate project is a black and white study done with the HB pencil tool. I was having some issues with the palm rejection for some reason, so the shading is a bit chunky in places. In general, though, I think it turned out pretty well, and it’s a refreshing change from the Nikko Rull technique that I’ve been using. I still love that method, and I’ll continue it in future, but sometimes you’ve got to mix it up a little.

Also, to give credit where credit is due, this is a study from a photograph on DeviantArt here: http://poivre.deviantart.com/art/octopus-61975083.

365 Days to Digital Mastery – Day 49: Who Ate the Carrots?

My Procreate project today is a fun piece called “Who Ate the Carrots?” I had the idea of a police lineup – generally they try to make the people look similar, but I wanted to make the characters in the lineup completely different from each other.

Today’s piece is kind of the opposite style that I’m planning to move into – it’s pretty cartoony – but some ideas just have to get out onto “paper”.

365 Days to Digital Mastery – Day 47: Watercolor Octopus (WIP)

365 Days to Digital Mastery – Day 47: Watercolor Octopus (WIP)

My Procreate project today is actually a work in progress. I’m trying to learn how to use the digital tools available to me to create more traditional art effects. Watercolor is my first focus. I’m nowhere near getting the effect I want, and I may completely redo this octopus (and by may I mean, of course I will), but since this is project I was working on today, I am sharing.
