Dave and I have been doing a lot of traditional work lately to get the kinks out of the system…if you know what I mean. One of our recent tests is being able to work in both mediums and get the results we want, so I set up a little challenge for myself. I roughed these digitally, inked them traditionally with a Pentel Brush Pen on Strathmore 300 and then digitally colored them. It was a bit more hassle between the steps, but nothing beats the traditional brush. Pretty fun…besides I’ve always wanted to do a set of playing cards.
I roughed out the other 3 suits as well. Diamonds is Robots, Hearts is Zombies (Ha!) and Spades is Space Rangers! I’ll post them up as I finish them. Should be a cool project.
Have a great week!
