    It's nice to be working with natural media again — it's been 15 years since I picked up a brush for anything. Excited to see where this all goes.

    Also: not entirely sold on the pen-on-watercolor style — I've mixed these in Photoshop, to play with the original character I've drawn in Illustrator, then printed, traced, and scanned back in.

    Will be doing a few more watercolor washes in different colors and densities to see what I come up with.

    Ohh la la. Very nice.

    I know i'm pulling it back into the web, but that canvas/paper would make a nice texture ;).

    Neat. Looks like a minimal wall-e. Mil-e? :)

    Wow! What Photoshop texture did you use to create that realistic paper texture and realistic marker effect with the realistic background watercolor? Wait a second...

    Awesome! @Darren, I though the same thing when I saw it. Is this a photo or a scan?

    @Jeph: it's a combination: the watercolor wash was photographed because I didn't like how it turned out after scanning, and the robot was drawn on tracing paper from an original I sketched and then drew in Illustrator (and printed for the tracing), then scanned in the penned tracing and put them together in Photoshop :)

    @Dan Thanks for the insight into your process for this. I am always disappointed in the quality when I try to print something and scan it back in. Do you have any tips on getting good results?
