Last proof and xmas card
I finally managed to get time to run off another proof of the rugby block. Cutting away the background further and lightening other areas has improved it enormously, I feel. Looking at it I feel it just needs the end of the ball lightening slightly as it's getting lost in the player's armpit. That'll be done Friday and hopefully I can start a print run.
The other important thing to get on the go is my personal Christmas card. I shall have to get it printed at a print shop as my own printer is on it's last legs, so time is of the essence now. Here's the line work, done bar a few details and extra bits I slip in. That's hubby and I walking the dog and son and his girlfriend admiring the tree. I shall probably insert a few more hapless souls before or during painting it.As usual it's on a Cornish theme. And as usual, I've used my Mac and Corel Painter to create it.
Incidentally, speaking of Painter, the Corel Painter official magazine Christmas issue contains a tutorial on how to create an advent calendar, all painted images and write up by yours truly! Get your copy from Nov 6th! ;-)
