I can't really help but be insanely proud of this. This is probably the first illustration that I have done in months that I am truly happy with. And it is an excellent feeling. So, I had a fabulous sketch done by Eva Galesloot, and I loved her character sketch so much I decided to try an experiment with illustrator and photoshop instead. And I have to say - it was awesome.
And the final product:

I've been quite neglectful these days, but I'm back and working on a few projects that I will be posting in the next few weeks!
Over the past few weeks, I have been concentrating on hand lettering, both traditionally and digitally. This, I drew with Micron Pens and played with photoshop. It is still in progress and has a purpose, but that is still in the works.
Okay, I have a HUGE soft spot for vintage type, slab serifs, wood type - you name it, I adore it. It's probably why my sketchbook and all my graph paper has been nothing but drawings like this. I am currently building a display font based of "The End". I tend to start drawing my letters with E, then I move to L, to I and build from there. This has been a wonderful experience and has given me some wonderful practice using illustrator's pen tool as well as the opacity mask. Snap to Grid is the best thing ever.
