Just a quick progress image, I have the flats and the lines done on her. The blue in the background is just a placeholder till I get to the actual bg.
I spent a little time last night working on making some smaller prints to send to an art show. I decided to try and send some tiny ones because they are a little less expensive to make and to sell. I also haven’t really sent any of my digital work to shows as prints yet, so I wanted to see how that goes.
I was able to print them out two at a time on my usual paper and then worked on trimming each print down to 5″x7″ (These images are a bit different from the ones in my gallery because I had to resize them in Illustrator before hand, sadly 8″x10″ is not the same aspect ratio >.< )
I printed out 10 of each for a total of 60. Once cut I signed the back and bagged and boarded each. I just need to finish printing out the labels and they are ready to go.
Now to figure out what originals I’m sending to the show.
Very cool article on how to put a png file over a jpg. Can be used for non-destructive watermarks that when right clicking to save, only saves the png overlay or as I used it, to put a little new tag in the corner of my new pieces.
Also, this article goes into many uses of transparent pngs for web design and art work.
