Here’s a “greeting card” I did for an current client of mine that works at a mortgage company. She wanted some personalized cards made to give out to her clients. I ended up doing quite a few drafts, then tweaking the final a few times. The balloons started out much smaller. This is a birthday one and below that is the “thank you” card. There maybe others to follow.
I first worked from a quick sketch I did of him this past year. Working in photoshop and knowing how to get around in it helps a great deal, you can add more options as you go. Placing the US flag in the back ground faded a little was pretty cool and that’s what I wanted. But after looking at it awhile, the flag stood out too much so I took it out and put it on his tie and I think that worked better. Plus I thinned out his neck too (which I don’t think he minded.)
It’s that time of year. Here are just a couple of xmas cards I’ve been working on this year. I have been doing these 2 for the past couple of years, each year with a different theme. This is the first year however that I’ve done the color digitally. It is soooo much easier to make changes, add and subtract things.
I have a few more, I’ll post soon.
Here are a couple caricatures I did a few weeks ago.These are my FIRST attempts at coloring in photoshop for a client. I’m FINALLY up and running with it. Thanks to Tom Richmond’s tutorials, thanks Tom!! My good friend, Jeff Mandell said, “Welcome to the 21st Century.
I have others in the works right now, I’ll post later.
