Buurrrr...



My second post to Watercolor Wednesdays! I altered an already finished painting. I believe I posted the sketch to this awhile back but never the finish...My bad!




Here is the original sorry about that I must have gotten sidetracked with something else?

Photoshopped the birds outta there! Clothes line and clothes poof! And changed the background color to a more wintery wonderland. Enjoy!

Burning

IF Burning




Sketch with digital color. Went for a watercolory look, since that's what I normally work in but using PS.

A little, very simple animation of my sketch being "burned" (I brought you into this world and I can take you out!)

My goal is to slowly but surely move into animating my illustrations. Some sketches some finished watercolors. So starting small and getting more complex as time goes on and I get more comfortable with the medium. I see myself working a more traditional style of animation. Hands on, I need that! The computer is nice but I need to step away from it every now and then plus the computer tries to imitate watercolor and other traditional mediums but just isn't the same as the real thing.

I'm doing this because as many know print is slowly dying and technology is taking over! da da da! And it's just not going away...Although I'm saddened by this I've got to come to terms that this is reality. Gotta make those illustrations move! Thought it might be a good idea to teach myself how to animate but still keep my style in tact. Animated watercolors could be very neat and fluid. Definitely a learning process and will take some time but I'm quite excited to see my illustrations come alive. Hope you are too! Stick around for more! Enjoy!

An example of illustrated watercolors might be the Red Bull commercials.

Simple, but extremely effective.

Unsure of where this could go, but determined to find out!

Spent


Final

Raw Scan
Sketch

He is spent physically, emotionally and financially.

(Experimented with gouache on this one...Need more practice. A lot of miscues and things that I'm unhappy with. I'll get the hang of it next time.)
