Do or Do Not.

Bonus Artwork: Yes, it’s Superman. Again.

with 2 comments

For your extra Saturday enjoyment, I give you a piece I just finished coloring in Photoshop. I know I’m not allowed to draw Superman for my 3×5 Project anymore, but this isn’t part of that — in fact, I didn’t want to draw Superman at all, but Kelsey pretty much begged me to, so I did. And since it’s not part of the project, I decided to take it further and finish out the colors digitally.

Superman by ~AllenHolt on deviantART

The coloring in this piece was mainly me trying to figure out a process for digital coloring/painting that’s going to work for me. I’m not all the way there yet (which I think is obvious looking at the final piece), but I’m getting closer. The original drawing was done in pencil, inked, then scanned and manipulated in Illustrator; the coloring was then done in Photoshop. I learned a lot putting this piece together and I hope to be able to learn a whole lot more about using Photoshop as part of my artistic process soon.

Also: I went and got myself a Deviant Art account for posting my stuff. If any of you happen to have accounts there, feel free to let me know!

  1. No more Superman?! But why?! I love Superman!

  2. Oh, I do too, but that’s the problem — I’ve drawn him too much over the last few years. He’s my fallback subject: anytime I don’t know what I want to draw, I draw Superman, frequently without having to think about it too much since I’ve drawn him so many times. And that’s why I drew him on Day One of my 3×5 Project — so I couldn’t draw him again during these 365 days (at least not for the project).

    But like I said, Kelsey begged. :)
