FARM

SocMo enjoys visiting the FARM... but the animals are always glad to see him leave. Click on picture to ENLARGE... you'll be glad you did!
Illustration Friday is where I tend to experiment with stuff. This week I rediscovered my old, long forgotten Rapidograph pen, and used it on the line work. Then I played around with digital watercolor for the first time. Fun stuff... but I have a LOT to learn here.

Ooh! I like! Socmo doesn't look 'quite' as nutso-looking in this medium (which I'm sure he'd be pleased to hear). So...? Is this in Painter...?

Doug said...

Yup... my first attempt at using Painter's digital watercolor. All the fun, without the clean up at the end! :o)

Hilarious!!! Great look too. Was that drawn in pen, then scanned in Photoshop and painted?

Thanks, Granny! Yes, my M.O. is always 1)draw, 2)scan, then 3)color digitaly.

Wonderful, I'm glad you re-discovered that pen - it still has a bit of magic left in it!

Nice work with the pen! I like that cow peeking behind the bale of hay, clever cow :)
