A birthday card I made for my sister. I outlined it with pen and painted it with Derwent’s watercolor pencils. The two characters you see there are hers; Bear, the gryphon, and Misty, the wolf pup.
A birthday card I made for my nephew. I outlined it with pen and colored it in with Derwent’s watercolor pencils.
A contest entry, and one of my first serious watercolor paintings. I used Simply Watercolor’s tube set, and added a few touch-ups with Derwent’s watercolor pencils. The outline was originally drawn with a standard mechanical pencil, but for the final painting I used a copy of the outline.
A concept sketch for my graphic novel. Made with Photoshop Elements and an old Wacom tablet.
A little something I did for my friend’s birthday. Drawn on Photoshop Elements.
Inspired by C.S. Lewis’ “the wood between the worlds,” one of my favorite chapters in The Magician’s Nephew (part of the Chronicles of Narnia). The outline was sketched on paper with a standard mechanical pencil, then scanned in and colored digitally on Photoshop Elements.
Drawings and Sketches
A sketchy Father’s Day card I drew for my dad. This was the first time I used a fountain pen (from Schreibfeder’s feather pen set) for drawing.
My first official commission, done for a neighbor. I sketched it out with a standard wooden pencil, then went over it again with General’s charcoal pencils.
A sketch I drew for use as a card. Made mostly with a standard wooden pencil, but I think I may have also used a mechanical pencil.
A little doodle I would like to color some day. Made with Photoshop Elements.
A birthday card I drew for my sister. :3 Made with a standard mechanical pencil.
A birthday card I made for my dad. That’s our dog, Sulley. Don’t worry, he’s never caught a duck in his life, and I don’t think he ever could. 😛
My business card for Color Vine Studio, featuring front (top) and back (bottom). The top picture was made in Photoshop Elements, and the bottom was made traditionally with watercolors and an ink pen.
A business card I made for my brother. He came up with the name of the business (OJ Odd Jobs), as well as the logo–which, I have to admit, is pretty clever. xD I simply illustrated it on Photoshop.
A logo I designed for my brother’s business. Made with Photoshop Elements. And I don’t have a watermark on this one, so please respect the copyrights–I really appreciate it!
