Dusting off the old...er, new airbrush
This is some art I was asked to create for a new website, (run by the syndicate that distributes my comics). It was a little different in style than my usual cartoons and it required the use of shading and highlighting. I'm not sure whether I really like the finished product or not, to be honest.
But I thought I'd post it for another reason; to discuss the creation process.
In the old days this sort of thing required an airbrush and lots of paint changes...and worst of all, a few days of time. Fortunately, Photoshop allows one to do very similar things with just a drawing tablet and a perhaps an hour or two of time... (No messy overspray, masking tape and paint spills to clean-up, either.)
