For this illustration, which I am doing for this week’s https://twitter.com/Clr_Collective which is Deep Koamaru, I used a combination of traditional and digital art. I scanned a pen and ink line drawing, separated some of the layers in photoshop and then brought the work into Corel painter. CP has a great way of coloring line work, or at least making it easy. I use their gradation tool with a little bit of texture on the fly which is a new feature. Enjoy.
I’ve tried this sketch a few times. This is the best at the moment. I threw some pen down with some watercolor. I guess some people can be surprised when they are lent a helping hand.
A little bit of a line experiment. This is the moment the solid rocket boosters detach from the main body of the space shuttle. I think I exaggerated the point of orbit at this point.
I did this on the train to the SCBWI NY Conference. It always is a bumpy ride on the train, so I kept the pen on the paper for the bulk of the drawing. It gave me an interesting line.
Here is my entry for a SCBWI postcard contests. I used traditional watercolor and pen and ink. Enjoy.
