Big-haired, pizza-loving Wonder Woman created for the very funny Fat Wonder Woman Blog. (This one will be added at some point!) Lots of great art there, go look.

Vector art done in Freehand and tidied up in Photoshop, as usual. (Here's a link to the original pencil scribble.)

Portrait of a '40s gal...let's call her Eleanor.

I scanned an idle scribble into Photoshop and redrew it with the brush that's supposed to simulate a pencil, then played with color, working as fast as I could so I wouldn't have time to over-analyze.

You can see the original sketchy drawing underneath--I decided I liked the way it looked with the line re-draw on the layer above.

The colors were meant to be 'grab-a-color-and-throw-it-down' since I'm still working on my tendency to think color palettes to death. I think the colors work pretty well though the green in her sweater is kind of funky. Then again, they did wear some funky colors back in the 1940s.

Caricature Fun

Quick sketch done between jobs this morning. Caricatures are so much fun I don't know why I don't do more.

For a long-running thread on the Drawing Board Forums.

Illustration Friday: Snap

Some happy little snap peas for Illustration Friday.

I had some time at the end of a long workday, so I sketched some peas and added some watercolor. Then of course I had to tweak tweak tweak and tweak some more in Photoshop, because it wasn't right. I'm taking a watercolor class, starting next week, and taught by my old friend and former boss who is an excellent painter--I'm very excited because I need some instruction in the basics; most of the time I am just slopping paint around randomly and I'd like to know what the heck I'm doing.
