Below: Progress/Process Images

The following images go from pencil on paper, then into Photoshop and coloured and tweaked.

Below: I didn't like the blind eye, so I put a patch on it. Then added 'horns'

Case Study

I wanted to experiment with pencil drawing and Photoshop. So: no inks and no graphics tablet!

I'm really pleased with it, and I plan to do some more on a similar spooky theme.

The imaginative subject idea probably popped into my mind after walking through Knocksink Wood, near Enniskerry, County Wicklow here in Ireland.
