Art Process:

I work almost exclusively in Adobe Photoshop on my Wacom Cintiq. If necessary, I start out by seeking out reference or mood imagery, either online or by taking my own reference pictures. I start with a sketch in a light color, to get the feel for the composition or the character’s body language and expression. I refine a couple of details that might get lost, then I jump straight to color. I usually lay down flat colors with a large digital brush so I get an idea of the big picture, then go back and work on details, rather than focusing on one area at a time.

I have presented at schools before on behalf of my alma mater. I love to present to students about drawing animals, specifically bears! For bear drawing, I teach the basics of how to study animal movement, how to find references, and then how to use shapes to incorporate character and expression.
