Namo, are all these illos in Painter? Have you ever tried drawing in Photoshop? I am usually not one who likes textures, but I like the water and sky. It looks like the softest prisma color pencil. I wondered what it would look like if the whole thing were done that way--lines, deck planks, and all...
Yes, Linda, they're painter illustrations.Most of the coloring was done with a custom sumi-e brush I made (the variability of the hue, saturation and value increased).The sea and sky were done differently. They started out as gradient layers. Then I made a greyscale texture layer and combined the two.I've drawn in photoshop a few times. I'm biased towards Painter because I use it so much.
Because I miss our chickens a lot, these illustrations have made me sad. It has nothing to do with the pictures.
