I've been thinking about how to spruce up my illustrations and one avenue was a little photoshoping with textures and brushes. I made a few brushes from an ink splodge and some pastels by following a very helpful tutorial on Bittbox. The textures came from Feodora Umarov’s flickr photostream and the tutorial I followed was on Digital Photography School blog, which was very informative.

I also had a little bash at working in a different style just to stretch myself. I've needed to try something new as it helps me think outside the box. I went a little crazy with the textures but I'm trying to teach myself something a little new.
I know I'm a little late to be doodling Halloween illos but it's in keeping with the above image and it's how I dressed for a Halloween party over the weekend.

  1. I like the textures! I don't use that stuff, I just look at others using it and think I wish I did. I just don't have the patience or endurance to play in Photoshop.
