Illustration Friday: RED

I have been wanting to try to break into
children's book illustration for awhile.
I thought I might use the topics on IF to
inspire me to build up my portfolio.
I scanned in pencil drawing and used
Painter to add color. I tried to stick with
the pastel & chalk brushes to give it a
little texture.

Illustration Friday: SUPERHERO

This is my first submission to IF
as well as my first Blog. Hopefully
I will have more to this site as time
goes by. I painted a pencil drawing
using Painter IX and added the
lettering and lens flares with
other programs.

The program I used to create the
lettering and glow was CorelDraw,
a vector program like Illustrator.
I used the drop shadow tool for the
glow behind the lettering & burst.
I also used Corel Photo-paint for
lens flares.
