Almost ready for display - a few touch ups needed. Painting cartoon pictures in thin layers of paint can go on forever - they are never really finished, and each layer seems to add a new richness.
Here is Phillip's final color version of the pencil art I posted a few days ago. We are looking at the UPA animation studio of the 1950's for stylistic influence.
This painting still needs some color saturation and touch up, but it is almost finished.
solo piece
I got the idea for this & completed it while at the library - I drew the pencil sketch and traced it onto another sheet of paper by placing both sheets against the window and using it like a light table. Lacking access to a scanner, I took a digital photo of the ink tracing using my Kodak pocket camera and transferred the image to Photoshop on my laptop and "cleaned it up" with contrast and levels tools. Then I touched-up the drawing a little with my portable Wacom tablet and colored in Photoshop. Next, I'll print it as a poster for the art show next Friday - original is 480 dpi.
