|What new techniques have you been experimenting with lately?
I have been experimenting with different coloring techniques, as well as line weight.
I have also been trying out CGing with Photoshop lately.
Since I started school I've been trying all sorts of new materials and techniques. I recently became acquainted with Arches watercolour paper (the best and most expensive kind around) and it makes colours SO much brighter and richer. I also tried my hand at gouache, which was a challenge!
Lino printing, 3D pop ups and paper cuts.
I try a bit of 3D with Daz and Terragen... And it was not a great success!
I have create a new cartoon style that I will start promoting it in a few months.
I have also created a few illustrations with a technique that combines sculpture, handcraft and photography. I am creating all elements of a scene with clay, fabric, wood, stones, paper and whatever it needs and I am taking a photo of it and the final touch is added in Photoshop.
As a way of developing a new technique I keep learning a 3D application and I will start soon working professionally on it.
Painted textures, and images created digitally to emulate silkscreening.
I have been primarily focusing on atmospheric coloring, and dynamic compositions and lighting. Though there a many small things that I always strive to improve on, these three are a consistent focus for me.
Using transparencies in paintings. Clear plastic sheets can do some pretty amazing things on a painting.
The truth is I haven't been experimenting very much lately, work eats all experiment possibilities now.
I have a pending one experiment with paper mass and watercolors, even though that's a little distant to illustration.
Im trying to master all kinds of painting, because i do mostly pencil illustrations, although i can use computers, painting is more touchy and longer to accomplish, so its something that ask for more patience and time.
I've been trying to perfect doing an airbrush/toothbrush splatter digitally in Illustrator.
lately, im experimenting with sand. i mix it with the paint and color.
I'm really getting into the possibilities of digital art. I'm a vector artist and I'm practicing a lot in this area to speed up execution of work as well as discovering new techniques and effects.
I have been taking breaks from my usual style and made several attempts to paint traditional watercolor landscapes.
