Uncharted Water: Digital Illustrations


Remember the free October Desktop Calendar I created weeks back? Well here is the original drawing I made before it was digitally enhanced. It was so much fun, despite the fact that half the time I didn't know what I was doing. For sure there are "right-er" ways of doing it and if you "digital experts" out there read this, please feel free to send me suggestions. I would very much appreciate that, thank you.

This is not a "pure-bred" digital illustration. As much as I have wanted to do just that, well I am not quite at that level yet. This project was like an assortment of different things. I started with the traditional illustration by drawing it on paper. I then scanned it and colored it in Photoshop CS5. I also did digital collage because I used different other elements like these pretty floral ephemera from Graphics Fairy x Pugly Pixel plus a colorful frame from maybemej.

Funny thing though, her hair kind'a looks like my hair now. But I digress.  How about you, what are your uncharted waters?

    1. Thank you...it's kind of challenging if we've gotten really used to the traditional way already. Hope to see some of your digital work someday.
