Jonas Brothers

Nick, Joe and Kevin.

Drawn on a paper napkin at a pizza place, no reference.

It's been a while since I've done a full-finished caricature... I may do these guys to add to my Disney series (currently consisting of Zefron and Miley.)

Two Boys.

Couple more new pieces:

Gouache on wood, with subtle scanned textures added in Photoshop.

Ink dyes on illustration board, scanned textures added in Photoshop.

I've always preferred working on traditional media over digital but I really enjoy utilizing digital tools to enhance non-digital things.
The forgivingness and the range of possible experimentations of Photoshop is just as good as the unpredictability of traditional media.

Wood Paintingz

Some of the sketches from the previous entry done in color:

Gouache & color pencils on wood, enhanced in Photoshop.
I had been wanting to do more wood painting, and applying subtle textures digitally. Here are my results, I'm definitely more happy with the first one than the second. I like how bright the green came out (and that wasn't digital, the gouache was super bright).
