Rolling Stone Cover, coloured Mignola Style

Had a bit of time, so I went back and re-did the colouring in a more Mignola style. I think it "pops" more this way.

DRWG200 Record Cover project

So, originally we were supposed to glue record jackets to a board, apply matte-medium, and then sand off and draw new parts...

I kinda said, "Screw that!" and did mine digitally. I took some blind contour drawings and one life drawing that I did during the semester, and used them as masks for the various photoshop layers...then I masked out a little bit more and played with some blending modes.

The result is not something I feel terribly strongly about one way or the other, but I like it better than I would have playing with a power-sander...

ILUS201 Final Project - Rolling Stone cover

The band: Ministry. Was trying a much more graphic style of colouring, looking at Tomer Hanuka, Frank Stockton and James Jean. Going to try this style again!

ILUS200 final project

Here's the final graphic for my Illustration Essentials class final project. Mixed media (linocut and photoshop), the graphic was lino, the font and final composite done digitally. Lino is way more fun than I would have expected, I guess I understand why all those people are spending their lives in the print room!
