What new techniques have you been experimenting with lately?
My painting style hasn't changed much over the last couple years, but I've been experimenting with painting up from just a background color and a sketch. Also, I've done some adding color to just monochrome pieces.
Pouring it on with digital tools, mostly Photoshop CS6 and the new painterly tools therein. Also recently discovered Manga Studio EX 4 which is absolutely sublime.
Not exactly new, but I've had a return to painting of late. I spent a lot of my uni days working digitally so it's been great to start working on canvas again.
I've been forcing myself to use colour more and to challenge myself in my subject matter.
I've also been experimenting with enhancing my hand-drawn ink work with digital.
Acrylics have been a late find, very versatile.
Interactive collage (for an iPad children's book). Very fun. A lot of work.
Not really new, but I'm getting back into brush and ink stuff. And I recently had my first experience with a risograph printer. Not first hand, but I made the illustration and sent the files over to London and waited with my fingers crossed. It turned out great, so that's something I'll defenitely do more of
I've been experimenting with traditional cartooning. I used to limit myself to the semi-realistic manga style for my characters and personal projects, but after months of marveling at American animation from the 1920s - 1940s, I thought it was time to take another chance at making more abstract characters.
Been working a lot with my wacom board, as well as learning how to spray paint.
