As much as I love the mark of brush or scalpel on canvas, I also really enjoy other media particularly illustration and design especially where there's an opportunity of combining both traditional and digital media.
Here’s a work in progress snap from last month of the (since) completed promotional image used on posters for an upcoming Marc Hunter Tribute night.
This was a mixed media combination of photographs, traditional media, hand drawn plus painted elements, digital collage and big city chalk.
A rewarding process of multiple scans, manipulation, rescanning, ink/paint embellishment (notably the background city scape) and then returned into PhotoShop for additional digital effects with a few tone adjustments before the advertising text overlays etc.
Enjoyed it. A labour of love I might add. Big fan :)
