Girls and Alcohol, always a good combo

working on a series of alcohol ads highly influenced by Mucha (and some Elvgren), for visual essay right now. I like to do this sort of digital sketching with collaging and digital painting. It helps me to consider color and composition at the same time, while creating a finished reference.

Here's where they're at right now.

Art project for a Liberal Arts class

I took Graphic Novels for fun last quarter (a liberal arts class, not an art class) but the final assignment was to write 18 panels of our own graphic novel. I did the direct translation of the Volsgung Saga and illustrated an excerpt from one of my favorite stories in it, when Sigmund and Sinfjotli don the skins. It was my first attempt at sequential art.

I enjoy working in this digitally-cut-paper style. It is also much faster than gradient meshes.
I'm considering developing a portfolio of each style.... like I have the time to do that :o[

My best showcase of gradient meshes
