This months character design challenge is pokemon. Decided to do a battle hardened veteran.
Here is my entry for the SCBWI draw this competition. There is some great work out there already for this new challenge.
I pen and ink with some Illustrator and Photoshop to make the final product. Below are some stops along the path.
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.
Created the sketching in sketchbook pro. Took the sketch into Corel Painter. Added color.
Just an idea for a character in a children’s book.
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.
Just a quick sketch of a dragonfly that I scanned and then inked in Corel Painter. I used the scratchboard tool under the pen category.
I like how it gives me thin and thick lines, much like a brush or fountain pen.
Sketched in Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and then rendered in Corel Painter 12 using the pen and ink tool and Cintiq 21ux.
