I've been a bit busy recently with work, but I do like to take time to work on small projects to add a bit of variety to my portfolio. Remember last week's Nearly Daily Doodle? It was part of a submission for a competition. Unfortunately I missed the submission date with this competition entry for Bluebird's 'Do Us a Flavour', but I love how the graphics came out. I'm glad I went ahead and decided to finish colouring the sketch.
Bluebird, if you're reading this, Butter Chicken chips would be nice!
Parts of a sketch that I am working on for a project.
This is how the sketch looks after I have inked it and then scanned it as a black and white image. The next step will be to import the sketch into Flash and do a bitmap trace. I will then colour the outlines and fills using Toon Titan.
A little while ago, I was lucky enough to win a sketch of my favourite Bug Pudding character, along with a printed version of one of the comic strips suitable for framing. The artwork arrived today and I cannot wait to get it framed, so I can hang it above my drawing desk!
(I apologise for the photo quality, these were taken quickly on my lunchbreak shortly after they arrived in the mail!)
