Spirit Falls

26 Jul, 2017
Good evening everyone! Spirit Falls is my latest concept piece that I have developed tonight for your viewing enjoyment. What do you see moving through the waterfall? Ghosts? Spirits? Magical energy? ...

Wave Rider

This was a picture that my daughter Rylie and I drew together while sitting outside at the beach one day. She started with a very loose pencil sketch of her idea and ...

Another Clip Studio Paint Image created from multiple layering and blending. This started out as a concept for a forest but I decided to make it a bit more dense and dark and add a magical glow.

As with most of my styles of digital art, it is not a typical process. Most layering consists of each element existing on its own layer. As an example, a pencil layer followed by an inks layer, followed by a flats layer and so on and so on. In my work I add flats directly on top of my inks and mentally I separate more by graphic element than by construction element.

If this was for a client, I would have used a more traditional approach. Nothing worse than a client asking for an adjustment in an element that exists in multiple layers. It would be a hunt to find the layers that need to be changed, change them, and then hope you didn’t change something else in the process.

As fore me and this piece, my brain works a little differently. I like to flow back and forth between layers….and since I am my biggest critic here, the only person I have to please is myself.

Have a great night!

This is an image design I put together recently which can be easily applied for T-Shirts and or other options. This was created using Clip Studio Paint with a multilayer process. ...
