New Candy!

Hello everyone! I spent a few hours playing around in Photoshop last night. I got myself a few new brush sets and colour pallets. I haven’t really done any work with the pallets yet, but I had a chance to experiment with the new brushes. I made a few test pictures using the various brush sets and I figured I’d post them up here over the next couple of days.

Hope you enjoy the samples!

This first set wasĀ Galaxies_bySunira. I found this preset on FreeBrushes.net.

I’ve come down with a touch of MURDER

Guess what I came across today? Concept art for the Murder Plague serial! Enjoy!

Ruby-scape

JRD was suggesting to me that I post a series of images taken from the Ruby Departed notebook. Sounds like a great idea, but there’s really not that many images in the notebook. :/

This is the illustration I did for the Flash Pulp 73, Ruby Departed: Neighbours three parter. It’s actually modeled after a very specific location in Ottawa, Canada.



That stuff I was talking about….

I spent some time yesterday working on the Red King. I wanted to paint it using watercolour, but I ended up using Photoshop instead. I get really nervous about painting works that I’m especially proud of. You can’t un-paint something, and I get anxious that I’ll screw up and ruin my original. Because of my anxiety, I rarely follow through with painting and that’s kinda sad. šŸ˜¦

Like I said, however, I REALLY wanted to colour this image using watercolour. So I decided to be proactive and learn how to make watercolour effects using Photoshop. I found a great tutorial on how to set up textured paper/brushes, etc. Check it out if you’re interested.

I haven’t finished the colouring yet, but I’m pleased with the way it’s turning out. Enjoy the sneak peek!
