Digital Painting Practice

Original sketch of Jester

 After a long hiatus from digital art, I decided to go back and try out some new techniques after watching a few tutorials. 
With inked lines

I'm not a beginner by any means but with all of the new features in Photoshop CC & using a new Wacom tablet it was great to "start over".

If you're just starting out in digital art or if you want to try some new techniques take a look at the resources below:

A fresh new look to Heather O. Studio!

Change is always good and this time it's for the better!

Thru many failed designs and frustration from attempting to learn new Adobe Muse software, the website has a new look to match the new Heather O. Studio!

Keeping to the goal, the website is mobile friendly and easy to navigate.

The final design emphasizes the company's new color scheme and the tools I use in my daily for my career. 

Let me know what you think of the design!

Web Design Project Part 3

The website design project continues!

I have been learning Adobe Muse for the past couple of weeks now thru tutorials & trial error.  I found there were a few limitations yet there was infinite possibilities for someone who is not a web developer (like me for instance).

For those who do not know what Adobe Muse is, to sum it up - this program was developed for designers [a-like] who want to join in on website design field, yet are not necessarily strong with HTML/CSS. Adode Muse doesn't require any HTML [or CSS] coding, whether the website is meant for a desktop, tablet, or mobile device views. 

Currently Adobe Muse is only available thru Adobe's Creative Cloud

Looking Back...

 It's always good to look back at past work to see measure growth in skills, confidence, and maturity. I brought back my old character Storm Whisper (who really got me into my profession). As I was working in the details/shading I just suddenly had to stop and see if anything had changed.

For sure she's not the same dragon as she once was! I wonder what she'll look like in another 5 or 6 years....
