In the olden days I would draw, ink and color a cartoon on a single piece of paper. Technology, since then, has allowed me to draw sketches on a piece of scratch paper, scan them into my computer and do all the “inking” and coloring digitally. I just bought myself a new iPad Pro. This was my very first attempt at doing the entire thing digitally.

I drew the individual frames in Adobe Sketch and used Creative Cloud to send them from my iPad to my desktop iMac. It worked. I did only minor tweaking to the drawings and arranged them in Photoshop. There is still a learning curve but overall I’m happy with my initial drawing.

Three Boutonnieres

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Addendum to the last post: three versions of the same boutonniere. The top is a photograph of the real boutonniere. It is sitting in an unseen vase on a black granite countertop but all you can see is the flower.

In the middle is a color pencil drawing done on black mat board. Although yellows, oranges and reds were used, the black surface changed the appearance of the colors.

On the bottom is a Photoshop® rendering using the “glowing edges” filter.
