Be Curious - student project

I did the Inky Illustration class and wanted to try more.  I won't be printing this but it was still a fun one to do. Still no scanner but the iPhone seemed to work well for me... for now.

The Sketch

I really should take Tom's suggestion of spending more time here on the mock up. I think I got too excited and wanted to take everything to Photoshop.

The Inkies

(Actually did all of these in pencil)

The 1st PS Output

It looked too flat to me and seemed to not have a human quality even though I did the details of the monkey by hand.

Some More Churn

Added the textures for the final one and more motion on the wheels. Also faked the imperfect alignment of a letterpress:

Final Copy

All in all, after just a couple of days, I already feel more comfortable moving around in Photoshop.  Will keep on working at it.
