Illustration Friday: Propagate a-la-sparky

February 23, 2010

I really had a hard time putting my thoughts on paper for this, so I decided I’d try a pattern and play with the layering in photoshop. I kinda hacked parts of it, but overall I came close to an effect I had in mind. Not really a block print effect, but almost like a litho over a block print of color.

So, something to play around with more in the future.

Adrift – Illustration Friday

February 17, 2010

I thought I’d try something a bit different this time around, so I goofed around with simulating watercolor in Photoshop Elements.

I don’t really like a lot of it, but there are some things here and there that I think are nice, and I do like the overall effect with the transparent layers.

I should probably do a real watercolor as a base and scan a texture I like, but I guess this is a start.
