How the Great Squirrel Taught Dynamo Patience
How the Great Squirrel Taught Dynamo Patience: words and pictures by Ingrid in collaboration with Dynamo the Dog.
Finally finished my first piece of digital art. It occupied far too much of my time, compared to output (banging my head against the computer for two weeks vs a single page of graphic art). That said, I actually feel I know my way around Arcsoft Photostudio pretty well. I no longer pine for ownership of Adobe Illustrator (okay, I still do, but not so badly now) as the software I have seems to be doing what I need it to do. While I'll go back to this sort of thing (this page was supposed to be part of a five page story "How Dynamo Came to Worship the Great Squirrel") I really badly need a break so I'll get back to some linocuts next.
PS. Just got an amazing Fantasy Reference book today 'Fantasy Figure Artists Reference File'. You can read the review at The Future is a Trilogy (blog mostly written by Cyd, but I manage to chime in once in a while). If you do fantasy art of any kind, I highly recommend it.
