Fly Fishing Artwork

Post by Weedbed » Fri Mar 30, 2012 11:43 am

Hey gang,

Recently I combined digital art with my traditional drawings and it seems to add a unique touch. So the fish is hand-drawn, then scanned onto the computer, the paper background is deleted, and the digital effects are added afterwards in CS5.
Let me know what you think.

Arctic Series - arctic char coming soon...

Thanks for the feedback NC.

Here's some pieces I did that are done in pencil. The colour is watercolour pencil and the black is graphite pencil. These are 9x12 and larger so they take a fair amount of time to complete! 20+hrs.

I think you should switch to wolves. Think of all the awesome t-shirts you could do.
