Jungle Girl final artwork

So this is the final artwork , ready to go to be silkscreen.

This is the stages to creating the artwork.

Pencil art

Pencil art is scanned into photoshop the blue lines removed by doing level adjustments , I then also add my additional text and make sure the image remains balanced and nothing is out of place.

First pass colour work , this is done mainly as flat colors, I drew inspiration from old comic books for their vibrant use of colour, I wanted this poster to pop.  After I had  got all the basic colour work in and was satisfied I then duplicated my original cleaned up pencil art and added it as a multiply layer to darken the lines and to bring the image back to looking like a panel from a comic book.

Then last bit of work was straight forward coloring and final adjustments. JOB DONE!

Jungle girl Logo Art

This is how I created the logo on the jungle girl poster. I roughly sketched/traced it onto tracing paper and using pigment pens and ink and brush I created the logo. I scanned it in separate and combined the logo and the final pencil artwork in photoshop , then proceeded to do all the colour work.

Coffin Joe themed LP cover

This is going to be used for a LP cover themed around Coffin Joe , I am inking the cover then coloring it digitally and adding effects.

RedDevil Sunday Artjam

So Sunday afternoons I spend with my buddy Anton doing some art jams , mostly just talking crap and drawing painting whatever, so yesterday I just painted this little red devil, he was actually suppose to be more magenta/pink but came out red by the time I was done with this. Acrylic on canvas paper

Jungle Girl Zombie Hunter WIP

Okay so finally I am getting back into silk screening my art, the long break was due to suppliers closing shop and I had to start hunting for new companies that could supply me with the  inks and positives I require to create my prints , well it seems most of that has been resolved. So to jump start the year I have started with my first long poster design. This time I am making the drawings bigger than my usual A3 size. In the photos you can see my original rough sketches and a smaller version of the larger sketch I was using this to flesh out some ideas before I commit to drawing the large artwork.

The blue layout is my original sketches scanned in and corrected in photoshop and then printed out lightly as cyan , just so  I have something to draw on , in photoshop once I scan in the final pencil art I just remove the cyan.
