IF: Spooky

I haven't participated in Illustration Friday in a while! The prompt this week is "Spooky." I often have trouble deciding whether to make art in the computer or to use watercolors, so this week I am presenting both. The original drawing of a Brachiosaurus on a Broomstick in my sketchbook was done in ink. First I scanned and colored it in Photoshop. Afterwards I painted the original sketch in watercolor. Guess which one took longer! Do you have a preference?
Watercolor

Digitally Colored

Academic Dyslexic Feline: Catademic


This is a quick painting I made tonight at the gym (after my workout, while waiting for Kelly to finish playing). I thought he was a Business Cat, but the more I look at him the more I think he's an Academic, or Catademic. Maybe dyslexic as well...

Dacchus - Doxie Doodle of the Day

Having the most wonderful time playing with Corel Painter and my Cintiq today. Got this idea for Dacchus, The Dog of Wine, and developing it in an oil painting style. The background will involve pillows and the like. This is the painting so far. Comments welcome!

Illustration Friday: Subterranean

My entry this week for Illustration Friday's Subterranean. Just click to enlarge for more detail. This idea went through a lot of variations involving weiner dogs and security cameras, but in the end I think this one works the best. Painted yesterday in Photoshop especially for IF. Comments welcomed!

Ilustration Friday: BRAVE

A young dragon must be very brave to try that first flight on such tiny wings.
