Collaboration is Fun
The Madames des Comiques group on Facebook has been doing an ink exchange this year, where various lady-type artists submit pencils for the other participants to ink. I've been really enjoying the process of making art from other people's drawings, and I've REALLY been digging the results of other people working over my own drawings. The above piece was inked by Ana King over this drawing:
Meanwhile, I was assigned this drawing by Elizabeth Schweitzer.
The point of this exercise is to stretch my artistic horizons. I don't usually work digitally--I don't really like working digitally--but it's a skill I need to develop and practice, so I decided to do this in Photoshop (rather than my usual default to Adobe Illustrator for digital work). This is the result:
I'm not sure of what I think about this result, but I'm glad I did it. It was fun.
I'm trying out Patreon as a means of funding my blogs. They don't have a widget yet, so this link will just have to do. If you like my writing and art and if you'd like to support Krell Laboratories and Christianne's Art and Comics, please come on over and pledge. Thanks.
