Hi. My name is Mindy, and I am also an artist.. I heard about you from Cory from the Blue Cube. Anyway, I'd really like to know more about the process you used to bring your illustration to life on your computer. I've been trying to figure out a way to do it. I'm slllloooowwwly getting to know my way around adobe photoshop. Any info would help. Keep up the great work!

Hi Mindy,

Thanks for your nice comments. Good for you for getting to ,know photoshop, that would have been my first tip. My second tip is to get yourself a pressure sensative digital stylus and tablet. I use a Wacom tablet. I keep it simple, I scan a pencil drawing, open in Photoshop and color it in a traditional manner, working the same way I would as I were painting with oils or acrylics. Email me at tmbonita@comcast.net if you have any further questions, I'd be happy to help you out any way I can.

All my best,
