More Exploration in the Digital Realm

Trying yet another attempt at digital coloring with the trusty ol'Photoshop. My idea was to do a grey-scale under-drawing with flat colors thrown in on top. I tweaked that some but overall I stuck to that plan and here is the result.

New work

This is a new technique of coloring in Photoshop that I was trying and I think there is a lot of stuff I still need to learn but I had fun trying this out. I can personally already tell somethings I need to work on but I think it is an ok attempt. Please feel free to leave any comments you might have.

IF: Focus

When I think of "Focus" I think of being distracted by many different thing pulling you in different directions. You need to keep focused in order to do what you need to.

As to my approach on doing the illustration...I wanted to break this rut of doing everything in pen and ink so I decided to throw a little color into the mix. To be honest...I am not too happy with it but I look at this a chance to grow. (I am my worst critic!) Oh well..Enjoy and thanks to ALL of you who have made a comment as it brightens my day every time I read them!

IF: "Wilderness: OH My!"

I had a hard time coming up with this image as I couldn't come up with an image for "Wilderness" but then I had a bit of inspiration. The image depicts the last Dodo bird coming into contact with a Lion, Tiger and Bear (Hopefully you catch the reference from the Wizard of OZ!?) right before it is eaten.

I hope you enjoy it...By the way I couldn't think of what to do to the background so I left like it is...If you have a suggestion please let me know what you think as I would appreciate the feedback.

This is my first contribution to Illustration Friday which I hope won't be my last. The word given was "Confined" and I immediately thought of business men in a box. After thinking about it for a while and doing some thumbnails I came up with this. A bunch of business men being jumbled together in a cube form.

More Ninija Turtles


I have been bored lately after moving back home to Jacksonville, FL and for some unknown reason the Ninja turtles got stuck in my head. Perhaps I am reminiscing my childhood or I just wanted to give myself some sort of manifestation to channel my depression...Oh well! Either way I think the image looks cool.

Let me explain the picture to you all: (From Left to Right)

Leo: I imagined the Turtles after their teenage years and Splinter is passed to that sensi heaven so now Leo has become their new sensi and leader. I think at this point in his life Leo has become a pacifist and more like a buhdist monk. That doesn't mean he won't fight or use a sword but instead he will try to resolve the conflict with words instead of action. Don't be fooled though he still carries a sword...Its in his walking stick.

Don: I imagine Don is still an inventor and scientist. I almost see him as like the Beast in the X-Men. Out of all the Turtles he is the one who wears clothes as he is trying to assimilate more to humans. He is holding his new bow staff in his hand which will pop open to a larger size.

Mikey: The skater/surfer guy and the all-a-round funny guy. I imagine out of all of the turtles he would be the one to get tattoos...I'm thinking tribal. He also wears a head band and has stickers of skater/surfer designs on his shell.

Raph: The only Turtle who still wears his mask and still trains for fights. I imagine he is all scarred up due to fighting and still slightly bitter at not being leader. The more serious one of them all.

OK...I know...I'm a geek! I admit it.
