highlights & shadows

Using Photoshop CC 2015, I'm working on adding shadows & highlights to my illustrations to give them some depth and 3D qualities. A start in the right direction, I think. Pin It Now!

Learning Latin with Song School Latin made fun!

Finally cracked the nut of Photoshop brushes, or should I say tools...
Like where these can go. I think I'm officially switching to Photoshop. Pin It Now!

photoshop painting

Experimenting with sketching inside of Photoshop again.
I've had such bad experiences with this in the past I thought it just wasn't for me.
I kinda like where these are going.

Paintstorm Studios Test

Trying out the new version of Paintstorm from Paintstorm Studios.
I have to say, I'm rather impressed. There are some really nice tools in there!
This was a quick test trying out some of the tools that attracted me.
And the price!! How can I not just buy it? Pin It Now!

Looking through some old sketches and found these little gems.
Still could use some work, but I'm happy to have found them!
All of these are done within ArtRage. Pin It Now!

watercolor, artrage

I go through these cycles with Artrage's toolsets. First it's watercolors for a year, then on to oils. Eventually I return to where I started. I guess I'm just trying to push each medium to see what it's capable of and to see how it might fit with different projects.  Pin It Now!
