Illustration Friday: Parade

Illustration Friday: Parade

This began life as a ballpoint drawing which I reworked with pen and ink, scanned and had fun with in Photoshop. For a change, I didn’t actually model for this one, but I did cut out a chain of similar masks just to see if the cuts and folds for the mouth and nose would work (they did).

Here is a simpler version:

Then I went a little crazy:

Oh, and I’ve put up the last of the work-in-progress posts for the book cover. Now I’m just waiting for the book!

    T. Martin – do you mean the one on the right of the strip of four? I like that one, possibly printed on linen for the cover of a suitably gothic novel.

  2. Thanks Studio M.M.E. I love my dip pen, but there are a lot of possibilities for combining it with the computer.

    Thanks Mike Greaney.
