George Liquor cleanup drawings

First attempt to cleanup some of Jim Smith's drawings posted at John's blog.







I will add more drawings tomorrow.

Nice one. But maybe some of the lines are a bit too heavy, and because of that they take to much of the attention. Like that stroke from the chair down his feets.

You really made some beautiful drawings. Wish I could do this as well! Do You make computer illustrations as well? Using Photoshop, corel, illustrator, freehand or something else?

You're right about that one. I misinterpreted some bolder pencil strokes from Jim's drawing. There's lot of room for improvement in all those pictures I put today, and I will make new versions in the following day or two. Thanks!

Pozdrav! Možemo i na hrvatskom, ako se ne varam :)
Da, koristim se kompjuterom pri izradi ilustracija. Kolor radim najčešće u Photoshopu, a za digitalno tuširanje koristim Flash ili Illustrator. Ipak, linije češće radim klasičnom metodom.
Ovo je inače blog za trening i učenje (trenutno posvećen jednom mogućem poslu u animaciji). Glavni blog s kompletnim portfoliom se nalazi ovdje pa baci pogled.
Hvala na komentaru!

oprosti na engleskom. Paralelno sam radila jednu stranicu na squidoo pa sam automatski napisala na engleskom.
Zanima me i da li prodajes svoje crteze/ilustracije na nekoj od stranica za prodaju stock slika i vektora? Vidjela sam da je prisutno dosta clanova sa deviantart-a.
Nisam ostavila poruku na deviantu jer trazi logiranje. To cu obaviti drugom prilikom.

Pretty good! The Jim Smith ones are kinda tricky, aren't they? (Or is that just me?) I've only attempted one of them so far.

Did you go straight onto Illustrator with them?

Ne, za sada. Možda nešto i ponudim u bližoj budućnosti, ako je solidan honorar. Inače sam freelancer što se crtanja tiče i nemam stalni angažman (regularni mi je posao izrada web stranica). Ti si na deviantARTu?

No, this is classic "manual" inking :) I'll try to do a version in Illustrator later on.

You're right about Jim's drawings. They are brilliantly constructed and filled with subtle details that have to be kept and correctly interpreted in the cleanup. I don't think I succeeded with these first attempts. You did a really good one yesterday.

Ne. Zato nisam ni ostavila komentar tamo. Malo sam nešto radila sa Corel draw-om i stavila neke stvari na 123rf i stockexpertu. za sada nista od prodaje, ali vrijeme ce pokazati. Inače, ako sam skužila sistem dobije od 30-50% vrijednosti prodaje, ovisi o kome se radi. Mislim da bi ti mogao pokušati. Traže većinom stvari koje se mogu iskoristiti u komercijalne svrhe, a vektori su trenutno jako traženi. Valjda je dizajnerima lakše kupiti dijelove za gotovi dizajn, malo prilagoditi i ukomponirati.
