Geez, getting this illustration done was a lot harder than it should have been! The first issue I ran into was my Wacom tablet up and died on me. That was resolved by the awesome people at Wacom customer service for a low nominal fee.
Next, I downloaded the newest version of Photoshop to try out all of it’s new toy’s, but apparently it has more than a few bugs. After a couple of times on the phone with Adobe, I found out the particular bug that I was running into (saving issues) won’t be fixed until the next version (19.1).
In the mean time I busted out good ol’ Manga Studio and knocked this guy out!
Whew! This guy was a lot of work! What’s really funny about this one is that I didn’t realize until I was coming into the home stretch with the colors that perspective on the temple was hideously off. Like,”how the hell did I not see that WAY sooner” sorta off.
Fortunately, Photoshop is one hell of a program and it was a pretty easy fix. I’m really glad I worked in multiple layers. It made fixing this little goof up (I still can’t believe I didn’t see that sooner) that much easier to clean up.
A friend needed help with her group project for her pediatrics class. The goal of the project was to create a board game that could help kids to develop healthy habits for eating and exercise. She asked me to draw the board while she and her group figured out all the game mechanics.
It was fun getting to work on a project that had a set of parameters. Sometimes when I’m told just do whatever you want I get that deer in the headlights feeling. “But there’s so much I want to do. Where do I even start?”
