Drawing Fish & Flies 52 - Bonefish & Crazy Charlie
Years ago when I was working as an art director at a small design firm we would get occasional illustration work. I always enjoyed turning a quick sketch into something new. The 30 minute rule for DF&F production really puts me in high gear once I get things going with the sketch and computer. It's one of those 8:00AM after 3 cups of coffee productions. Prior to about 2005 the computers & software we designed on wouldn't have moved fast enough for me to compose with the computer so fast.

Production Notes: Used the plastic scan from last week's brookie piece to give that ripple look. In Adobe Illustrator using the "Multiply Transparency & Opacity". This gives certain layers that "see through" quality.
Anyone following along is welcome to use my Bonefish piece as screen wallpaper.
DF&F announces a weekly subject for those who want to play/follow along. Only one rule, 30 minutes for production. Check out Jason & Jeff's work at the links below.
