Today's little exercise as I get familiar with working on screen: A spoof birthday card.

Good, but there need to be some eyeballs in the hands, too.

More eyes! I did think of Pan's Labyrinth when I made this. One of my favourite films.

The Hands of Hunnehmuhne. Exercise. Pencil sketch scanned and worked up as a vector image in AD. The tufts of vegetation were knocked up freehand in AP with a bristle brush and they transferred seamlessly into the AD design which brings a lot to the process. I'm really delighted with that feature. I also wanted to try animating the main character to waft about a bit in the breeze but that seems to be impossible. 
 

 

On another note; somehow I crashed AD during the process when this was at an advanced stage and stupidly, I hadn't saved it OR even named the file. After a bout of self-flagellation, I re-started AD and it recovered the file. Brill.
