Going 2D

Postby Pixero » Mon Jun 01, 2020 11:44 am

Hi all!

As some of you know I lost my job this spring after a period of too little work coming in to the company.
Now while I'm trying to find a new job I decided to try to fulfill a dream to create a picture book.

It's been very refreshing not working in 3D and instead go crazy with perspective in 2D.
Here are a few of the images so far.
Drawn on Ipad and some postwork in Photoshop.
What do you think?

I'm sorry to hear about the job, I hope that gets sorted soon. The artwork is, and I do not want to blow smoke anywhere, bloody marvelous. You just might have hit on a career move. If so I hope it works for you beyond getting some money in between jobs.

You rock mate. :knockout: :thumb:

Thanks guys.
Yeah it’s kind of our family when our daughter was a baby. She had quite a volume to her voice and the book is about having a baby that sounds a lot.

I would love to have a big iPad Pro but I only have the ordinary iPad with Apple Pencil.
I sketch and ink in an app called Infinite Painter. Wow, the best one I’ve tried.
So intuitive.
Found it by accident in a YouTube clip here:

https://youtu.be/R9F_UcJHrfI

Infinite Painter currently doesn’t support A3 size with multiple layers so for the full spreads I did the inking and painting in Sketchbook pro.

In the autumn he will upgrade the graphics engine In Infinite Painter to metal and take care of that memory limitation hopefully.

Additional effects and such was made in Photoshop on the PC.
I also did some brushstrokes with Procreate.

I completely agree with every single comment above!
Sometimes it needs these kind of "fractures" (sorry, I can´t translate this better), which reveal even more potential of an already so very talented companion here. Wonderful work Pixero! - and the thing with the siren-voice I already suspected :D :thumb:

Just to echo the consensus here Pixero: really fantastic work, and I love the style!

I have 2 grandkids (age 4&6) that I can see loving the story of a little kid with a huge voice that can scare away bad guys, especially with illustrations that are so engaging and expressive.

Great work, and good luck with the career shift. :thumb:

Love it. Well worthy of going on sale in a story book. Hope you can turn things around with it.

Best of luck, keep drawing

Great work, thanks for the share.

That third illustration is verrry close to Winnie the Pooh, careful of the big time players, they'll close you down in a heartbeat.
