Last Birthday

Okay, I promise this is the last birthday illustration I post. Well, for now anyways. I was just that I got hit with 3 friend's birthdays one after the other, and all of them amazing artists, so that's all I've been working on recently. This last one was for my friend Katie Rice. It's my second digital illustration, and I really like how it turned out. I again inked it in Flash and added the textures in Photoshop. But this time in Flash, I tried just inking the drawing by hand with the brush tool, instead of using the line tool. It was kinda hard to get used to at first, trying to get good thick and thins, but I think it turned out well. The letters are also hand drawn, I don't know why you wouldn't think they were, but some people had asked me about it. Enjoy!

Hi Sean!! I know I already told you, but this card is super awesome! I'm so happy that it was for ME! I think the technique you've been using for cleaning up and coloring your birthday cards is really cool...if you do more, post them!

That's a real beauty, Sean. Well done!

Inking with the brush tool in flash, and a wacom is awesome. It's about as close to a real brush as one can get...except it comes with an undo ;)
