While I was working on the previews I came across some process pictures I made for the existing sets.

I’ll be making some more illustrations and videos to demonstrate the brushes soon.
Thank you to everyone who has purchased the brushes, if you make anything with them please show me. There is also a free set of the oil pastel brushes available.

I did around 11 pages for this book. My sister Katherine Garner, was the lead colourist. She and Josh Kenfield did most of the flatting work for this book, with Kip Henderson helping as well.

Things have been quiet on the website because I’ve been in training mode. I’m learning Blender 3D and having fun developing my own Illustration story project.

Style Test for Folklore Project https://thimblefolio.com/2207/style-test-for-folklore-project/ Tue, 09 May 2017 10:22:17 +0000 https://thimblefolio.com/?p=2207 Continue reading "Style Test for Folklore Project"]]> I did this Illustration a while ago in preparation for a folklore project I was working on earlier in the year. I found a better way of working with my traditional artwork in Photoshop, which I then applied to the Sparrow illustration I did. If I’m not getting anywhere with a project, switching to another one can help.
