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?
