Summer of Color week Three, Hobie and Chase


Check out the scrumptious  Summer of Color  
This weeks Ice Cream inspirations is Baseball Nut, 
consisting of Black Raspberry and Cashews. 
Meet Hobie and Chase my third week contribution!


Meet Hobie
There are no room for mistakes during this process...
It's a one trick pony! I bravely outlined Hobie in a mess of color!

Chase was done on the opposite page!  
In the end I added the raspberry color for affect!

 Theses are the messy pages I started with. 
There was actually a lot of texture 
after I smashed the pages together!
Do you see Hobie hiding in the color. 
Each to their own, it could also be another 
face hiding in there! 
It might be cool to print these pages and 
try some other characters later!

I  often hear artists complaining that their colors aren't
 accurate to their paintings when scanned for the blog.
 I use my cannon to photograph my pieces for just that  reason!
  However sometimes the flash makes the picture
 a bit bright so I put it in an edit program to match 
 up color, hue and brightness as close as possible  
to the painted piece. Of course while I'm there 
I'm compelled to play with the color too!!!

 Check out the  Flickr site for a compilation of juicy Summer of Color art!
My very favorite flavor of Ice Cream is actually pineapple gelato,
what's yours?
