New style has appeared, it seems. Fun.
Just another one of those shelved pieces that have been sitting on the table and in my mind.
Paint, Photoshop and some nice filters off the phone. Interesting editing trajectory but the fastest way currently to final artwork….
Also a bit of the undigitized behind the scenes version.
What does push button Photoshop mean about art anyway? I get that question a lot. I’m old school and partial to a nice pencil sketch.
#this is also a test of the WordPress Android application.
PPP: Just a piece of paper, pencil and Photoshop. (:
My tiny brush is misbehaving at the moment and so, it’s the pencil for today. Love ombre/gradients/colors.
It’s been a while since I posted, but I’m most definitely still alive. Between relocation to a new city and other transitions, many things have been going on in the work and personal front.
Nevertheless, here’s a little something that was started in January this year, and only just finished. So continues my affinity for cityscapes, in two different versions (SG & NYC), with the usual mix of traditional pencils + digital photography and Photoshop. I’m really not too sure about that brick wall in the SG version, hardly anything is brick in Singapore. Glass seems to encapsulate the spirit of the city better as well.
Thought it might be fun to have a before and after, so…. original pencil sketch as below too. Hope you guys like it & I should be back to writing and more soon enough.
Also, 500 Sheets of Ink, and then some.
A highly experimental piece, but I’m loving how its turned out so far! A glowy, gauzy gown, city lights, and a whole lot of quiet….
P.S: On another note, I am going to move a whole lot of content over to the brand new Facebook Page, so please hop on over and it would be great to connect there. This is part of my personal #learnsomethingnew initiative…Everything looks rather spartan at the moment, but it will (only) get better once I get the hang of it all.
Those who know me well enough will know that I absolutely adore fashion illustration. And while I love the concepts presented in the new Adobe CS5 Suite, I really hate the “push-a-button, get a picture” mentality (or how they kept stressing that “you don’t need to know code to do ABC”)…. I’m old school that way. There is nothing better than paints, canvas and a size 000 brush. For some reason the colours don’t appear too vibrant here. :/
But anyway, so here it is…a blend of good ole traditional brush and paint + digital + the very pretty HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition as I was asked to visualize how to pair this pretty netbook with any style… :) I’m thinking of cool summer nights, just chilling in the breeze…(but with internet access + the netbook so i can read my feeds, etc. HAHA). Would love to hear what you think!
Inspired by the shades on the pretty Dorothy Perkins dress that I did not get.
Style and technique wise, I will not stop trying until I can get to even half the level of the jedi master of fashion illustration – Mr Jason Brooks, whom I have nothing but the utmost respect for. Awesome stuff from him, I really love the “new” (ok not so recent) but his newest move towards the metallic 3D rendered look. Very fluid. Very nice.
This materialized while waiting for the Christmas guests to arrive. Hand drawn, a bit of paint and digitally inked. I decided to go for a bit of the grungy, muted look in this. Might experiment with another version with more vivid hues.
