I'm not sure either of what's going on, but it sure looks like a lot of fun!

Happy Tuesday!

In fact i think we walked in real late on the story....I say it started when one animal...the croc was convinced of a great party in this magical place....and one by one along thier journey, the story grew and so did the number of animals that joined in the fun.

the party is the greatest wedding party ever...

Thannks guys!

Tylersaurous. Actually, i'm looking into doing Tshirt designs as well. After seeing Mike Laughead's stuff, I went to check out the various tshirt sites he is on, and, god, they look great!

Chad..
AH!
Do you mind if I turn that into a story?
That's a super simple but such a great premise for a visual storytelling adventure. like a picture book or something! MAybe even a short animation.

Ha!
Thank you

I love this one Pascal.

It's strange, this illustration is very endearing to me. It could be the warm coloring, but I think I used to have similar looking images on a pillow case when I was really young. I love it.

colors

Hey Pascal,

I'm curious as to how you choose your colors. Do you color the thing up real quick and then mess around with the hue/saturation, or do you pick swatches? you have pretty fantastic and fresh looking color. Would you mind talking about your thoughts on organizing color for a moment?

thanks!

Hey Guys Thank you.
Frank.
For my colors, I ussually create a color swatch in flash. To do this, I try and picture the finale color scheme from the get go and I create three or four sqares filled with the colors I'm going to use.
When I start coloring, I ususally do once character , or one piece in color ( in this instance, it was the elephant in the top left, at the window), and see how it looks. If I like it, good, if I don't, I play with the hue and saturation of this element until I'm satisfied with the color scheme. Then I proceed with these new colors to do all the rest.

At the end, I try once more to play with the hue and saturation. If I did my job corectly, I don't need to tweak them too much or at all. SOmetimes though, I find myself fiddling with it for a while.


But I do try and have an idea of what the final colors would be pretty early on. Not necessarily of the design.

Hope this helps. When I get a little time, I'll do that "pascal tutorial" that I've been asked about. Just.... when I get a chance
