This is my illustration of Diana the Roman goddess of the hunt and the moon. In mythology she has the power to be able to talk with and control animals. I have always had an interest in Mythology. Once again, my Canon scanner bleached out the colors. I am going to purchase the watercolor friendly scanner my friends recommended.
This is the illustration for last week’s Illustration Friday topic, Talented. I just finished it this weekend. I have been suffering from bad scanner syndrome. The watercolors I have been creating are not scanning well. Lighter colors are washed out so scans even with Photoshop adjustments are not looking much like the originals. My new Canon printer does not seem any better than my old Brother printer. I read that an Epson scanner is supposed to be the best for watercolors. I’ll have to try that out, next time I buy a printer.
Still working on that Red Riding Hood illustration; my Brother brand printer is not helping, it is on the fritz, inoperable, kerflooey, malfunctioning and just not working. This post is an old illustration I created in oils. Using some inspiration from a modern art painting, I created the background. I imagined a more contemporary version of the Greek Goddess Athena as the figure in the foreground.
Take your stinking paws off me, you dang dirty ape! That is what you would say if you encountered this primate character in the shadowy swamps of a distant alien planet. I had some fun creating this space ape. I used markers and watercolors to make the illustration. The ape comes from some comic ideas I have floating around in my head.
