old town


I little experiment.
Took a paper skecth and applied different digital techniques to it.
It's a little rough, but it's really exciting to see how i can now start blending different medias and get faster and very interesting results.

I've always loved your cityscapes! Can you please explain a little bit which digital techniques you used for this? I really like the sepia wash feel... it definitely sets the old town mood.

I like this look too and am also curious to know how your work. I really like yesterday's post too. That little guy looks like he's out to cause some trouble :)

Hey Bobby, Sarah..
it's nothing really magic or new to most people, but, I just drew the background on paper, scanned it in, and colored it with photoshop.
I then exported it as jpg and imported it into flash where I drew the people. some shadows and a few more tweaks.
Then I exported it from thee.


I don't usually "mix" medias.
This is a fun process for me!

Great control of values and composition, and the line work has a lot of charm!

hey MAc...Values and composition is something I use to work so much back in the day.
It feels good to get back to it once in a while

This is the kind of stuff i've been indulging myself in lately! I'ts only recently that I reached a comfort level with Photoshop to do my own experiments.. I'm still learning Flash and hope to do some more stuff with it someday....

Where will we be without digital media right? Anyways this is a really nice sketch Pascal!

pascal said...

where would we be without digital medias....good question!
I don't think I'd be able to do a quarter of the stuff I'm doing now, but i'd find some other way.
hmmm...



Thanks Louie!
