Easter Robin

Here is a new drawing I did to celebrate Easter. I hope you enjoy it.

I made this image for Illustration Fridays topic Reflection. I've had the idea and a rough sketch of this for a long time. I got the idea for this painting from an experience while visiting my sister. My sister has a great view of the lake from her place and a couple of times I got to see a great blue heron fly in close to the shore. They seem like such magical creatures.
I intended to do this in Photoshop and give it a painterly look but I started working in Drawplus (a vector based program) to plan out the painting. I still want to do the painterly version. I've started the clouds but that's as far as I've got.

Anne of Green Gables

I've been reading Anne of Green Gables and was inspired to paint a picture of Anne. Anne of Green Gables really is a wonderful Canadian classic.

Fancy Animal Comparison

I drew a new face for my Fancy Animal painting. I'm not sure if I like it better or not but I'd better get started on the painting soon or I'll never finish this.

Fancy Animal assignment color comp

I'm taking Chris Oatley's Magic Box class on line. It's really great. I recommend it to anyone wanting to learn about making digital art.
It has taken me a long time to finish this first part of the assignment mostly because I got quite frustrated with learning photoshop. I think I am finally starting to get the hang of it.
