Creating a fun workflow between SAI and Photoshop! Love how this lil' guy turned out with the use of the pen tool for line work, then the 'water' brush for actual painting. After that was done to my satisfaction I brought it into Photoshop where I did some quick fixes then overlayed some textures onto the fur and face, added a colour correction then bam! Finished! Or at least as finished as I'll ever make it.

What started out a pencil drawing in my sketchbook developed into this! Originally I just had her head and it was mostly rendered by the time I decided that she should have a body as well, which I think in the end was a good decision. The freckles were a last minute thought too, but I really like the extra little pzaz that they give! Piercings and eye shadow were definitely a newer kind of territory and I think for the next female figure I paint, whenever that it, might have tattoos as well!!

She's quite good at it too! I'm pretty happy with how this looks. It's nice to feel like I've actually progressed in drawing things straight from imagination! Anyways, I sketched this one out on paper first, then scanned it into Photoshop, painted it and voila! A witch surfing on her broom.

Well, I didn't quite feel like doing school work so this is a painting of a rabbit I did while trying out this technique I'd heard about awhile ago but never had the chance/motivation to try. It involved starting out with the canvas zoomed really far out, then gradually zooming in after I got as much detail in as I could at that stage. It was actually pretty interesting and though it felt a little more time consuming I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Of course, there's always room for improvement!

This one started off as just a simple dog that I wanted to paint, but as I continued I got more and more into it and the scene developed itself. I was very pleased with the result. I was especially pleased with how the dog's eyes turned out. They look much more 3-dimensional than ones I've done in the past. I'm really falling in love with playing with light rays and whatnot. Hopefully I'll still have time to paint as the school year continues.

My newest digital painting! Oi, those trees took a long time to get them to a point I was happy with. Pretty pleased with the lighting in this as well, I think it turned out very nice!
Update: Since posting this painting elsewhere, I have learned that people don't particularly like the dog and personally I agree with them, so I took it out! Here is the new version.

This is my first art piece of the new year! I recently downloaded a bunch of new paintbrushes and I'm loving them. I think this turned out quite well and even though I didn't make a new year's resolution, I am hoping that this year will be full of finished artworks by me.
