So, I am really bad at updating my blog with all the work I'm doing. I get caught up in doing different assignments and my own things that the pieces I want to post get forgotten about. Here are some digital paintings I've done using Photoshop.
Made with perfect circles and straight edges
Robot Saving Human in Desert:
This was a completely new technique for me. I started out with a good line drawing
Next, I transferred the drawing to watercolor paper, lightly just blocking in shapes with graphite. This next part is what was new. I'm not very familiar with watercolor, but I painted my piece quickly letting the natural watercolor texture show.
Finally I put the piece into Photoshop and painted layers digitally in between my watercolor layer and my line layer. You can see that I added mountains in the back, but you can still see some of the water color texture shine through the digital paint. Even though this was a new technique for me, it's one that I actually really like! It gives me a process to follow and allows me to add cool effects to my piece. Lemme know what you think!
P.S I have to say this because I'm pretty excited! I got into the BFA Program for Illustration!
