Mischief


I got such a cool parting gift from my co-workers today!
Mischief. http://www.madewithmischief.com/
REALLY REALLY cool drawing software!
Feeling ridiculously spoilt!!

Mischief is a vector based drawing program that has an infinite canvas and infinite zoom.
But it really doesn't feel like you are working in vector. It just feels like you are painting in Photoshop. This means you can basically just draw without having to think about resolution, setup, canvas or any of that stuff. Weird and amazing!
Check the video at the link above - it explains it better!

Old figure drawing restoration Part 1


In my spare time, I have started digitally restoring some of my old tech days figure drawings.
I have tons of old drawings from throughout my life stored up in an old suitcase in the cupboard. I figured, you just don't know when something happens and you lose them forever.
So I've started scanning some of them and restoring them in Photoshop. Some of them have a lot of foxing, footprints, moth chew holes and all kinds of other gunk, that I am removing. But I still try and leave some of the feel that they are on old paper.
Here are the first two. I'll add more as I have time.
To Part 2

Stegosaurus meets some strange little creatures...

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with dinosaurs. I swear, I could identify every single dinosaur by name. Not sure why I haven't drawn many dino's then, but this weekend I just had to draw one...
So here's a Stegosaurus. Pencils on Bristol board, which I'll ink up soon.
