I've been a member for a little while without a post of my own. So I guess today is the day I share. 😳 The talent in here is amazing and quite intimidating.
I've been a glass artist [my own glass beads for jewelry] for years but did do watercolors for several years before the glass. Earlier last year, I fell into illustrating [2 so far] childrens books for a brand new publishing company and just enjoyed it so much, the glass is put away for now. One of the books will be out next month and I'm in the midst of working on the other at the moment.
This is a watercolor I did of my grandson scanned into photoshop and worked on very minimally [this is not from either book or even the same style] and although Im not really looking for critiques, Im always wanting to learn and improve so if you feel so inclined, I won't be offended. I know there are many flaws..but it is, at the moment, a personal best.
Im just learning digital art..a brand new language for me and I'm so so so excited to have stumbled upon SVS, a WEALTH of information that I'm trying my best to drink up and apply to my work. I can't seem to sketch right in photoshop..its easier for me to start with a scan. I played with some brushes to see if I could improve upon my little boy..and I think I did. I do love this new to me medium and see where if I can improve upon this now with my extremely limited digital skills, it might get pretty exciting in the future!
Thanks so much for looking and any words of wisdom/advice you might have. I love the vibe at SVS..I feel like I can do this little show and tell without too much anxiety!
