Illustration Friday - Cats


A sharp contrast from last week's! But this kills two birds with one stone as I'm in the middle of designing images for kids cards (the website is nearly finished - watch this space!) and I've been wanting to learn how to use photoshop for more than photo's so after seeing the tutorial from Copper thought I'd give it a shot. It was a quick sketch scanned in and coloured digitally using layers. Should have cleaned the lines up a bit but I was in a hurry to see the final result. I'm getting quite excited by all this as before I thought drawing was drawing and digital was digital but have realised I can use both, and include collage too.

Must seem obvious to most illustrators these days but when I was at college over 10 years ago computers weren't used at all, so to me this all new!

Talk about contrast--this weeks and last weeks could have been done by 2 different people. Great job on the cuteness quotient here.

Leave the lines alone, that is a great pic, and all the more better for the looseness of the line work. I love digital work because it can bring a clarity to work that no matter how you try it by hand you can't achieve. But that pic is all the more better for not trying to clean it up to much.
