[2016.03.30] St. George and the Dragon (commission)

Paul_StGeorge2016_web

After a month-long hiatus (*ahem* vacation), I’m back to work, and I’m starting with this piece of St. George and the Dragon (St. George is the patron saint of England). It’s part of a story about overcoming your own demons, especially the “demon” of despair. This was commissioned by my good friend, Paul Crouse, and it will be featured soon in his blog, as the artwork for one of his great articles. I’ll be posting the link to the article here once it’s out. Paul is a spiritual teacher and guide, but unlike a lot of “gurus” out there, he’s down to earth and incredibly funny! Be sure to check out his site as well πŸ’œ

It happened sometime this week, but I apparently have a bit over 150 followers on Instagram! Wow, I never thought I would have followers at all. Thank you so much to all who like my stuff and support it. It’s awesome to get support, really encourages me to keep going and pulls me through rough times. Lots of πŸ’šπŸ’œπŸ’™ ~peccosa.

I decided to color the sketch I made for @caracasteaco as a way to continue to improve my digital art skills. It took a long time to finish this piece, because it was a sort of experiment, but I learned a whole lot. I think the next digital piece I make may go a lot faster ~

The original sketch for this piece is below, from this post of about a week ago.

This is the first digital illustration I’ve made entirely from scratch in Photoshop (from sketching to finish). I’m learning a bit every time ~ πŸŒΉπŸ’—πŸ’

Blurry Eye tutorial study

eyetutorial_webI’m going to practice my digital painting basics in-between projects from now on, so I did a short study of blurry eyes using corel painter (though the tutorial says to use SAI, but I have a mac that doesn’t support it). It was easy enough, but I didn’t get the results exactly as the tutorial shows. Here’s the tutorial below:

I think it’s because I didn’t use lock pixels, so the color was going all over the place. Well, I’ll keep trying πŸ™‚ I do hope someone makes a version for SAI soon, because I really like what I’ve seen made with the software.
