Yay! for Wacom

I may be addicted to Adobe Photoshop and the Wacom Tablet. ‘Tiger’ is my latest piece that I worked on to fill my 2010 portfolio. My initial idea was to finish this piece traditionally with pencils and maybe a little spot coloring with prismacolor markers. However, once I scanned in my rough sketch and was playing with value studies and composition ideas I kept going until it was done. I’m having so much fun learning.

Trixie Little and The Evil Hate Monkey

This is a poster design for Music City Burlesque that my friend Eric Denton and I collaborated on. I borrowed a Wacom tablet and played around with color over my caricature sketch of Trixie Little and The Evil Hate Monkey. It was my first time using Adobe Photoshop this way. I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go in learning Ps and Ai. Hiding layers and Apple-Z became my friend.
