A New Direction
I recently spoke my rep Maggie Byer-Sprinzeles about ways I could expand my portfolio. She suggested trying to reach a younger market, adding anthropomorphic animals, perhaps doing something more painterly. This is my first stab at it and it has been incredibly fun. After a few little thumbnail character sketches I dove into the full sketch - maybe it took three hours - then scanned and tweaked in Photoshop. I am coloring it digitally - Photoshop as well. I have finally achieved enough ease working digitally that it has become a right brain process and not the mental torture it used to be for me.
