Stuff I'm currently working on. Sketches and whatnot.
I love the recent tugboat illustrations that you have been producing! Just a quick question, what do you use to color your artwork? Photoshop? Painter?...etc. Thanks!
Thanks! Painter for the line drawing and photoshop for coloring. In painter, I stick to the 2b pencil tool for the most part, in PS it's the "dry media" brushes--adjusting the opacity and the spacing for a smoother or grittier stroke.
Oh you make it look so easy. I hate you.
Hey Matt, love these tug pics. You have really mastered the traditional media look with these, great color palette too. It's great that they don't scream "DIGITAL!" like so much art these days as well. Mad props to you!
These are great Matt. Will have to check out Painter some time.
Thanks guysi'd prefer to work in acrylic or gauche, but the time saving end of digital allows for assignments i might have to say no to otherwise.The trick for me for having these not look too digital, is working the same steps as i would in traditional media. Same scrubby background tone-wash over "pencils", same establishing values, same building up color in a scumbly way.That and using a screen tablet. Drawing directly on the monitor makes the process feel as natural as it's going to.
