I felt like painting a portrait and experimenting more in Painter...although I should be using real paint instead of digital all the time. I'll get to it soon enough. I've always had problems when working in Painter that when I take it into Photoshop the contrast is a lot darker. I'm sure it is an easy fix but I'm just too lazy to go in and fix it. If anyone knows how to do this PLEASE e-mail me. I don't know if the settings in Photoshop are just too dark or if Painter is too light. It tends to make my darks really dark. I've noticed too that when posting anything on here it's always much lighter than my original. Hope everyone has a good new year!!

Merry Christmas- a nice little card

Merry Christmas Everyone. Not your typical Holiday Greeting card but, what can I say, I'm not typical. Hope you weren't on the naughty list.

finally done with that!

Sometimes it is just necessary to design female warriors with white hair. This is Athena, the greek warrior goddess who amazingly sprung from the forehead of her father, Zeus, fully grown and ready to take on the world. Go girl! Yes weird, I know, but I didn't write it. I don't do a lot of these kinds of characters so this was fun to work on. Most of my work is more on the stylized side as you can see. I enjoy designing layouts for things like this too. Not sure if it's the best layout but it shows what I needed to show. I'll try to post more stuff. I'm getting lazy, I know. Christmas is almost here and it's still in the 50's here in Cincinnati. Damn global warming! How can I get into the Christmas spirit when I only need a jacket to go outside. Lots and lots of watermelon candy canes, maybe!
