IF: Resolve

Kelly resolved to make new friends wherever she went.

First illustration of the new year (sort of... since I drew the sketch last year!)

Completely colored in Photoshop. Love to know what you think!

You tricked my eye. I thought you had done it by hand. It's really great. I love the feeling of the piece and it has nice composition too.

Diana

I can just hear the 'plop plop blop' of the air bubbles. Wow! You are a master of Photoshop, Tom. (I must resolve to learn this year!)

Happy days and Happy New 2009 to you.

Wow! That's some amazing faux watercolor! It really doesn't look like Photoshop work. Very sweet illo. Thanks for your comment.

Yes have too agree, great digital watercolour technique! Very convincing.

Thanks, Chris!

Mônica said...

I really like this illustration, Tom. It's a great image, I like her pose and expression. And I couldn't believe when you said you did it all in PS. It has such a handmade feel to it, just like watercolor. Great work!!

Tom Barrett said...

Thanks, Mônica!

As everyone has written, I thought it was watercolor as well! Nice work! I too am working on my digital skills, when I can but nothing worth posting as yet. Thanks for visiting my blog Tom, and yes, that couple was just kissing! That's "love' for you, eh?! Do you know, your self portrait is still one of my favorites!

Bella Sinclair said...

Me too, me too! I could have sworn this was watercolor. Really cute image, too. Hmmmm. I've been trying to learn Illustrator. Perhaps I should learn Photoshop!

Tom Barrett said...

Thanks, Elise! Yea, I surprised myself with that self portrait. I need to color it. :P

Thanks, Bella!

Alicia Padrón said...

I like it Tom! I think you did a great job with it!
Do you like working digitally more than traditional?

Tom Barrett said...

Thanks, Alicia! I don't really have a preference. I like the control I have with digital, but also want what I do in Photoshop to look traditional. Getting that look requires more work (at least right now) than just creating with pencil and paint. I guess it just depend on my mood. :P
