Illustration Friday: "Shiny"


This piece was created digitally in Adobe Photoshop.  I think it took longer to draw it digitally than it would have if I'd used a traditional pen and ink but I did like being able to use color, instantly correct mistakes and experiment without ruining anything.  And there was no risk of spilling or blooping ink!

  3. I love the detail and especially how you varied the crosshatching on the left side of the blade to show it's sheen :)

  6. Oh wow, wow, wow! You HAVE been busy! I didn't know you were doing digital along side traditional. That's fantastic, I like it for all the reasons you mentioned. Although as you say, ironically it may sometimes be faster to do it manually. Great stuff Laurie, really great.
