My shamrocks are finally finished! I've lost count how many layers were put into each piece but there are many! I decided to not outline these graphically. I like the pencil outline much better. :-)

Detail views of each to follow shortly...

Hibernate: Color, and Shamrock Designs

Here is the color so far for my sketch Hibernate, which I did for the Illustration Friday challenge last week. I decided to bring it in to Photoshop and add some color. I have really gotten into using custom PS brushes, which give really interesting effects to your artwork. I use the default brushes at a minimum now.

Secondly, I'd like to add my shamrock designs thus far. I posted the line drawings over the summer. In case you forgot what they looked like, to the left are the original drawings. I decided to drop the first design and draw two new ones to make it an even 4. Included with the line drawings is the color WIP...

I will post some detail views of the color designs as well, because they are quite detailed...

Fast sketchbook piece for Hibernate...done last minute (had a very busy past few days).
I really like where this is going. I plan to go further and paint it digitally with Photoshop.

Outlines are pen and ink.
