Here’s another original ink and watercolor illustration I did for Snow Country Magazine about 1996 or so. I think the big guy in the middle was some kind of agent or doctor or trainer for skiing stars, but I can’t remember the exact circumstances with the article. The other guys are famous skiers from the late 80’s early 90’s.
The one thing I hated about ink and watercolor was how the paint would cloud up the black line work. What I would do was to paint the color in on the pencil drawing, THEN go in with the inks on top of the color. That was awkward and I didn’t use that technique very long, but the few experiments I had using the old comic book blue line/film pos overlay method were disastrous thanks to the clients not having a clue how to color separate that kind of work.
By the end of the 90’s I was 100% digital with color. No more bad color separations or trying to ink on top of color.
