Studies and Spookies!

Blast from the past

This is an old piece I did as part of a deck of cards that local creatives in the Orlando area did for Disney managers as a gift.

Rework of Fairy picture

I love having other artists to bounce my work off of. Some folks over on the VoodooChilli website critiqued this sketch and helped me make it stronger before taking it to final. I think their suggestions about playing a little more with tonal temperature, leading the eye around the image better, and not having the attention drawn away from the character were all valid issues and I have addessed them. Here is the new sketch.

And here is the Final Image.

It was a constant back and forth between Photoshop and Painter. I made a custom brush set in Painter and did most effects in Photoshop. It was helpful to take palettes from the photo reference that I used for different items. Saved a lot of time trying to mix all the colors. If you have any comments, I'd sure like to hear them. Thanks for looking.
