Great image! The dog (is it a frenchie?) and flying books are nice touches.Is this all in Painter?Books By the Banks is a great event. I will have a table there signing books. I really look forward to it.
Thanks, Christina! I'm not sure of the breed. Yes, it's all Painter. I started the sketch on paper but moved to digital quickly once I got rolling.I believe the Books by the Banks organizers would like for me to attend the event and sign a few posters as well. Looking forward to it!
Nice job, Ryan, and congrats! I missed the event last year, but I'll try hard to catch it this time around.as an aside, what are the advantages of Painter over Photoshop? (IYHO)
Oh Boy! and we have a customized header now!
Thanks Chuck! Painter just seems to be set up more intuitively for the type of work that I do. I think the brushes apply more naturally. I still go back and forth a little bit between Photoshop and Painter but most of the brush rendering is done in Painter.
Images look great! Impressive skills with Painter! Nice twist on the use of the statue of Roebling. In the original, I believe he is looking at the plans for the bridge—right?
I have been informed by my boss that the woman walking the dog (Boston Terrier btw) should be wearing a Bearats hat ;)I think it looks great - Congrats. I hope to be there on the 17th & have you sign a poster for me.
Thanks, all! Steve: Yes, I believe you're right about the Roebling statue holding original plans in real life.Rach: My bad! Tell your boss it won't happen again.
Great piece, Ryan, and congrats on the commission. The detail shots are cool on their own - I love the flame and wheels on the skateboard coming out of the shadows..kinda looks like a live creature.
Hey, thanks, John! Much appreciated. I'm excited to see how it looks in print.
