…aaaand the last season in the series! Maybe I got a little carried away with that tree trunk, and maybe I got picky and redid one of the lines a few times. But it’s done!

Process: pencil guides, felt pens (05) on cold press watercolor paper, digital color in Photoshop.

Mwahahaha, hand lettered seasons finished! Now to move on to more paintings and hand lettering. Maybe combined. Maybe involving tea (labels).

Another example from my hand lettering tumblr!

SPRING! A good theme for April.

Hey guys! I’ve started up a side blog to explore hand lettering design. Here was a fun little project I did today. If you’re also interested in hand lettering, go check it out! I’m not sure where it’ll take me but it’s definitely fun. 
Embarrassing childhood fact: My handwriting was so terrible when I was a kid that apparently my teacher had words with my parents over it. I don’t recall this, but my mother swears that someone finally told me “just draw the letters” and there was a sudden and mysterious improvement in legibility…

Some of you may remember the robot octopus I painted in ink a little while back. Today I decided to use him for a digital coloring experiment.

First I worked on a “multiply” layer to bulk up the values and establish an overhead light source for the foreground. Then I laid in color using layers set to “color” and a final “screen” layer. Near the end of working on this I felt like the blue interface in the foreground didn’t pull into the warm light very well so I shifted it to amber and made some other tweaks to the temperature of the spotlight.

Overall a fun experiment, I’ll definitely be trying it out more in the future.
