Halloween costume

Costume

Here is the sketch I did after I got the gray hoodie that is the base for the costume.  The little man liked the wolf and the owl drawings, I went through my fabric and found a lot of brown so that was the deciding factor.

Well I love it, lets hope he does too!  Happy Halloween.

 

I love the versatility of photoshop

Rebuilding my portfolio is turning out to be a very rewarding experience.  I’m free to create and explore new media and push myself creatively.

This was originally a loose ink drawing, I brought it into photoshop  and created the degraded rust effect.  I tried a few other versions of this same drawing but so far I like the feel of this one the most.

As a side note I’m also designing some cute buttons, you can check them out at this new site:

From the sketch book into Photoshop

I’ve been playing around with some drawings out of my sketch book and editing them in Photoshop.  

I had a really fun photo-shoot a few months ago with my friend Jorge, and out of those photos I drew this quick little image.  I did some colouring in photoshop and added a little more depth to it.  There is a lot I still need to learn in photoshop, it’s a huge program and after a year of learning it on my own I’m looking forward to taking a course on it next semester.
