A Not So Serious card of a Serious Cat.

Someone asked me to do a card for their mother of her mother's favorite cat. She gave me the picture and so I roughed out a couple of pencil sketches and inked them. Then I went over the sketches with a kneaded eraser to get rid of the pencil marks.
After that I scanned those two sketches and digitally colored the sketch I liked the most with Photoshop Elements and my Bamboo Pad. I next copied and pasted that sketch onto a picture of some wood panel and added bubbles.
I left the right side blank so text could be added to the card.

Monkey on a Bomb

This just started out as a pencil sketch with my character doing something else. It just kind of morphed into this.

A Karmannn Ghia illustration.

I haven't drawn a car for a while, so I roughed this one out in pencil. Then I inked the lines that I liked with a couple of pens. After that I went over the inked drawing with an eraser and got rid of the pencil lines.
Next I colored the car with my Bamboo pad and an older version of Photoshop Elements. Then I made a background for the car and copied and pasted the car onto that, again with Photoshop Elements.

My first sketch page of 2016

I have a new sketchbook and a new scanner, so I thought I would use both. Just a number 2 pencil.
