Anatomy of a computer Illustration: Janice

so, the first image is an inkpen sketch done of the real life model. about a 20 minute skecth, just trying to mostly capture the pose and the facial features. the other stuff can be figured out without the model. the sketch is scanned into my computer, adjusted onto the page in photoshop, and then a light contrast image printed out on cardstock paper to do my penciling over.

the penciled page is then scanned into the computer and touched up just slightly in photoshop to remove any unwanted traces of my light contrast outline.

then the penciled page is printed and inked with pitt permanent ink artist pens. mostly a brushpen but a few smaller points for details in the face and hands.

the inked page is scanned into the computer and then digitally painted in photoshop.

and voila! the illustration is ready to be printed on quality paper and framed.

school project

simple photo collage of scanned objects. used action figures, tools, computer parts, and a harley wallet chain to create sort of a frankenstein awakes type moment. pretty easy but fun nonetheless.
