Illustration Friday: Eyeglasses



Eyeglasses!!

This one started as a pencil sketch.  Then I scanned it into Painter and drew it properly with the crowquil brush, varying the point size between 2 and 3.5.  I love the freedom Painter is giving me.  I get the feel of a real India ink dipped pen, but with the computer's completely forgiving eraser option. 

It's been ages since I've done a sketch for Illustration Friday.  There's a good reason for that.  I've been busily working on an illustration for a commercial client.  Most of that was done in Painter too.  I'm happy to report that the work was received enthusiastically by the client.  I'll blog about the creative process after the image is up on his website.

  1. Lovely little scene! Looks almost perfect. I'm a bit of a klutz so I would need a much larger table for my drink or it would get spilled frequently. :)

  3. Bumped into your blog by mere chance, Jeannie. I selected your pen & ink work and loved it. Not often I see other people's pen & ink and although your work is totally different to mine, I really appreciate it as wonderfully refreshing.

    I have become a follower, I hope you don't mind
