Sneak Peek…

… from an illustration project coming soon to a magazine near you! This is an extreme close up of a full(ish) page illustration using my “colored line” technique. It’s sort of half way between colored line art (ala MAD) and a full painting. I ink it like I would comic book style work then isolate the line and color it rather than leaving it black. It makes for a softer look at more mainstream magazine art directors go for that as opposed to colored line art, which has an inescapably “comic book” look.

    Do you scan your artwork and color on the computer? How long would it take you to complete a piece like this for MAD?

  2. Clay Taylor says:

    Great job on the colored line technique. And the painting technique looks great too. I use Photoshop to color my caricatures and I’m still learning. I like your style.
