I’m Seeing Spots

December 8, 2008


This baseball picture is part of a spot illustration I did for the assignment I’ve been working on for the past month or so. I did a quick count this morning and I’m approach 200 spot illustrations for the project, and I’ve still got a whole bunch left to do.

You can see the YouTube Video here.

I hear ya Doug…me too. Dennis, are freehanding the color blocks in place w/Cintiq or making masks as you go along?

…Bernard, I am trying to keep my process just as simple as possible… 3 layers… the middle layer is the line work in multiply mode… the other two layers are in normal mode… I block color in UNDERNEATH the line work and then put the finishing touches on the TOP layer… no masks…


Yes! Simple is very good…because I probably don’t have to tell you that I am simple! Seriously, thanks for all you do to help us computer noobies.
