The Park

This piece is a part of a series called "Boy Meets Girl". It's the moment right before (or after) a boy and girl meet. The other two pieces were done in acrylic, but I decided I wanted to do this one digitally. For this piece, I decided to do my process a little differently. First, I blocked in all the color in flat, large shapes. Then I went and rendered the flat shapes.
I also learned to use the Image Hose in Corel Painter, and can I just say "I lovvveedd it!" It was so simple to do all my leaves and flowers and fun too!
All in all it was a really fun piece to work on....anyway, Enjoy!!!

Chapter Headings

These are two chapter headings for a book I am working on. They are done in graphite and digital. The story is about a girl who goes back in time and becomes a pirate. In this first scene, she gets in a fight with a pirate and he pushes her off of a cliff and into the ocean. There is a second pirate (who later becomes the love interest) who dives in after her. He looks around through the seaweed and finally catches a glimpse of her through the tangle of green.

This second chapter heading is for a scene where the main girl and guy end up on an island and run into it's native tribe. The tribe hates women and the only woman in the tribe is the chief. In the center of the tribes camp they have a totem pole, only instead of being made of wood this pole is made of severed human heads.
