I’ve been busy with non-art things. Just did this to keep the skills in shape. Took about 1.5 hours. It had a really ugly phase after about half an hour.
Here is the final logo created for my families little logging business. I did some other sketches before settling on this idea. Came to this idea after looking at some baseball logos.
Here is a video of how it was made:
And here are a couple of the initial concepts that got it started. There were others but they were just brainstorming sketches that were never going to be taken seriously.
Yesterday I discovered that a new version of Sketchbook Pro was released… two years ago! I upgraded to version 7 today. I’m really digging the new features and the brushes feel great. It has expanded blending modes and the selection tool functions more like photoshop now. I haven’t gotten into some of the other features yet. I would have upgraded two years ago had I known about this.
Here is my first picture with version 7. The weather looks like it has finally turned where I live and I’m treated to the sounds of spring.
