I used these creatures to practice my two tone illustration. I usually use a grey pen, but I liked the contrast that this red pen bestows.
When my mom sent me a Panettone, I did not realize that it would make me look so regal. You see, this Panettone came in a wooden crown type of container, and my fiancee took a fine picture of me wearing my new headgear.
As you might expect, I used this opportunity to draw myself in many different styles. I used ink wash, digital colors in Photoshop and Illustrator, and just plain brush strokes.
My brother and his longtime girlfriend are getting married! To celebrate the occasion, they’re going to have boxes of fancy donuts rather than cake. And decorating the boxes will be a donut logo. Who do you think will design those donuts?
I’ve made these donuts so far. I will add text to them and maybe some other decorative elements.
Since I’ve been familiarizing myself with the different coloring capabilities of Photoshop and Illustrator, I thought that it would be worthwhile to do test. I have a caveman here that I’ve colored in Illustrator and Photoshop. Both have their strengths, and depending on what a client wants, either has it’s benefits.
I love Illustrator’s pressure sensitive brush for applying strong light sources and strong shadows. I am sure that there is a way to apply colors and textures in a more subtle manner, but I am still working through the coloring interface to get to that point.
I learned to color in Photoshop, and I love the subtle touches one can apply with the brushes. In Photoshop, I still apply strong light sources and shadows in the same manner that I would in Illustrator, but I think Photoshop’s strength lies in it’s ability to endow nuances to digital coloring. However, we’ll see how I feel once I progress in Illustrator.
