Trust me! I’m a dragon (T shirt design)

My second T-Shirt design featuring a dragon. I drew the dragon on my iPad and the wacky font I drew in Photoshop.  T Shirts are a fascinating form of graphic design (to me) that I wish I would of considered earlier. While I doubt I will make a living making these. It helps me think outside the box and incorporate both graphics and text into a piece.

The Babysitter – Finished Painting

dragon-protecting-a-cat-9

I made so many mistakes, I had to fix and refine it. I learned a valuable lesson about painting. Step away from your painting and leave it alone for a while. I would of caught the stupid mistake long before.  The cat and the dragon in the same plane didn’t work. The painting needed a foreground so I moved the cat forward. Added atmosphere between the dragon and cat. the stupid ‘fog bar’ was too strong so I removed it. The painting was too open so I cropped it a bit. I also blended in more of the painting. I make my lines too big, next time after I get enough of the paint on. I will be tossing the line layer altogether. Something I must keep in mind. I felt I could of saved time if I would of worked the sketches out more and not just jumped into painting.  Fortunately, I was able to save this illustration. I won’t make the same mistake next time.
