…digital paint…

I thought it might be interesting to show the process on these particular pictures. I scratched out the pencil drawings sometime in November and they have been laying on my studio floor since that time. I got a new watercolor sketchbook at Christmas and used those pencil sketches to get that project started. When I have a little spare time at night I sometimes will digital paint with Photoshop and that’s how the last images came to be.

Doug Jones

it’s always fun to see the transition from sketchbook to blog.

Dennis Jones

…the transition from the floor to the trash can, too…

Don Jones

And let’s not forget the transition of trash can to neighbor’s back forty. These are super… are you using the Wacom or the mouse… or both?

Dennis Jones

…Wacom Tablet… the mouse has retired…

Doug Jones

did the mouse get a gold watch and an AARP membership?

Don Jones

Speaking of AARP I received yet another card in the mail last week. I wised up and put this one in my wallet to flash around for those snior discounts.

Dennis Jones

…just got back from getting a yellow fever shot… I don’t know what I’ll do if one of those other colors tries to get me… just make a run for it I guess…

Don Jones

A yeller ocher shot? You must either be getting ready for a foreign mission trip or Nick’s wedding.

Ryan

When you say you got a watercolor sketchbook, I take it that’s a traditional 2D medium and not digital? What water color sketch book do you use?

Badjess

…we don’t need no steeenking badjess!

…ok, so in addition to a brand new prescription of those tasty Malaria pills I love so much, I also just got shots for Yellow Fever, Typhoid, Meningitis, Polio, Tetanus, Hepatitis A, and Hepatitis B. The health clinic awarded me the coveted, Batman Bandaid Of Courage, which I am still proudly wearing as a badge of honor…

Doug Jones

Dennis Jones

Bernard

A nudder Fine Peace ‘O art but is he going back to the future? What’s with the fading edges? As for all those shots…I can’t say what I would have rather done and be religiously correct on a public blog but you must feel like one of them tomato pin cushin’s our grandmothers used to have, eh?

Dennis Jones

Gary Locke

Dennis Jones

Bernard

Too Late! I already did and WOW! Now I have another great place to stop for out-of-this-world artwork to look at. Great Stuff Gary. Have you parked the brushes yet to go digital or have you always been digital? 50/50, 60/40? I’m 20/20…with my glasses that is.

Don Jones

Just as long as you look like your Passport photo… you can get back into the U.S. in a few weeks… maybe.

Doug Jones

are you still hanging around the Webnet… or are you Out of AferKa?

Don Jones

I’ve got a feeling we are going to get tired of looking at this stinkin’ BadJess…

Bernard

I’ll second the commotion!

Roballoo!

Great Illo – fantastic melding of image and background texture – they really go well together. I also like your treatment of the hair – that mustache looks like it has a mind of it’s own. My only complaint is the brain ooze towards the top – glad I’m not the only one who saw that. That’s not good to look at before I go to lunch.
