Pig in flight suitQuick illustration for Illustration Friday Challenge “wings”.

Created in Corel Painter using the basic pencil tool and a little of the pen and ink tool. I usually do my sketching in some other color than black. It is a habit I still use when I am doing traditional sketches and do some of my under-drawing with col-erase pencils.

Hope you like.


Ahab and the Great White Whale Corel Painter

Had this illustration for a while and never posted. Originally intended to be a poster for classic literature.

Nothing says classic literature like Moby Dick, and nothing paints a more dire picture than Ahab going on his last mission.

I’ve played with this on and off for some time. I enjoyed the dynamics and played with a very loose brush set in painter 12, something that I generally do not do.

I tried to highlight an image of a skull in his face, to forecast his eventual fate, pinned forever to the side of the white whale.
