Save the Date Sneek Peek (WIP)

I’ve been commissioned to design some Save the Date cards for a wedding. The theme is “peacock”.

I’ve been painstakingly hand drawing each and every feather. This is but a small section of the overall piece.

And here’s a closeup view of the colored version:

I am really starting to hate peacocks now.

Kraken + photoshop magic

Used a little Photoshop magic to make my Kraken design a little more t-shirt friendly.tshirt_template3

Le Petit Vader

Had this one in my brain for a while, now.

I have redone this piece about 6 times, now. Each time, something was not right. I eventually used my new Cintiq to finish this (I couldn’t trust myself to do it in traditional medium).

Finally, it is done.

I submitted a dumbed-down version of this to TeeFury in hopes that it will be made into a t-shirt. I say dumbed-down because I found out (as I was about to upload it) that there was a 6-color limit.

I used half-tones to get around that one.

Fun

I finally cleared off enough space on my desk to hook up the WACOM.  I was experimenting with some comic characters but instead decided to play cheerleader for Husband.

And the result:

Edit: I tried to tag these on Facebook to make use of their new feature where you can make these 5 images show up on top. I wanted his profile to show JAMES in Beth-characters, but apparently they’re too full of awesome to show the entire image. The result was a cropped version of what I had intended.

A funny result, however:

Totally looks like “SEX”.
