Liffey was the Irish Setter my family owned while I was growing up. She was a wonderful companion, if a little odd at times. I must have doodled these caricatures of her at some point last year, but I’d forgotten about them until now.
A few weeks ago I began working as a character and storyboard artist on an animated feature film called Spiked. I’ve been drawing a lot but of course I’m not able to share what I’m working on yet, so here’s a little doodle I drew today!
Today’s quick doodle. I want to try and get away from relying on my sketch lines. I’m finding it difficult to translate them into finished, clean lines!
I’m thinking about illustrating a short story about Liffey using this style. I like how haphazard I can be using this digital pastel brush! This drawing is of Twoey and Liffey.
Some doodles with new Photoshop brushes.
A quick doodle I did for Fathers’ Day. Elsa is our new Border Collie puppy. She likes to chew on things! Sadly, not only her own things … I used Kyle T. Webster’s Pastel Palooza brush, and was so impressed I’ve preordered his dry media brush set. You can find his brushes here.
