First page in my new sketchbook.


So this is how most of my fish start off. As tiny thumbnails, almost just silhouettes just get a general outline and shape. Then I scan the page, blow them up individually, drop the opacity in photoshop, print them out and do the originals right on top of the print out.

Like I said, I am making a concerted effort to start posting regularly here again. I thank those of you who are still with me.

I appreciate the explanation. Not being an artist myself, I find it fascinating how 'you people' get these incredible ideas from your brains to our eyes. Your talent continues to amaze me.

New sketchbook. Just broke in a new pad myself last night. Love the feeling of destroying that first blank page.

It's nice to have the 411 on the creation of the fish.
