My Work in Progress

A sketchblog where I post a few of my scribbles from a variety of works-in-progress, usually from my rather random personal creativity outside of the daily grind. I occasionally, but not always, post the final artwork.

Fooling Around...with Color

I have a general idea of where I want to go with the coloring of my Dahlia sketch, so I'm just throwing that down with my mouse at the moment to block in the areas. Planning on doing two color/style interpretations of this one: one "painterly" with PS and Painter (need the practice) and using my wacom; the other via Illustrator and vector shapes. I'll finish this up over the weekend. Have plans for Friday - gotta try some of those Octoberfest beers. ;)

Now that I've started checking out the various Halloween displays set up at different retailers, I have to admit it's kind of cool to see and recognize product that I've worked on or developed initial concepts for (a couple of years ago, imagine that) in stores at last.

Nice! I like the sketchy gritty feel that you've accomplished with this illo. Very good!

Awesome stuff Tanja. I love the sketchiness and man, those eyes just pop.

hey there, Matthew - well, as long as the eyes don't fall out. ha! Actually, I usually do more detail work on the eyes, even if it's still in a sketchy coloring phase.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
