Drawing trees, trees, trees
Kept true to my plans and found an A3 scanner on Elizabeth St. Currently teaching myself how to make a vector image in Illustrator via YouTube tutorials
I mean, let’s ignore the fact that this is a very rough job, but this is my current plan for the colour scheme for the deer t-shirt. Tried to reduce it to the smallest amount of colours as possible that was aesthetically pleasing to me, and as far as t-shirts go 6 seems to be pushing it (from what I have gathered from my limited knowledge anyway).
Tomorrow’s plans are to raid Melbourne for an A3 scanner so I can get this baby coloured in properly (instead of colouring it via an iPhone photo…). Apparently Elizabeth Street’s Kinkos (or Dinkos… something of that sound) is the place to go…..
Insomnia and Midnight Juggernauts on repeat. Size of a dinner plate (literally, ‘cause I used one to draw the circle). Going to rework this digitally to make it black and white and then submit it to RedBubble.com
Playing around in Photoshop
This is for a much larger image, where the detail and quality of this drawing would be lost. Thus it needed to be shown separately. Inspired by the style of Richard Wilkinson who is one of my favourite Illustrators (http://www.richard-wilkinson.com/)
‘Let me calm you with my saliva’ - Jake the dog, from ‘Adventure Time’. Something random which made me laugh coupled with the beauty of nature. Humour and the beauty of nature; the greatest mood uplifters. I drew this when I was feeling down and it certainly made me feel a lot better
Used this great stock as a reference: http://linzstock.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=pine+mountain+safari#/d181lc0
The ability to use stock images is so handy. Will probably use this image (and other images from the same artist) over and over again. Will be really handy for my animation that I’m working on.
