Spider and chicken illustration

Both of the above illustrations were initially pencil sketches, of which i then applied ink to a desired finnish.
From there i take the images to the scanner, and open them into photoshop!
(note) all my illustrating is done in photoshop! no other software used.

Dependent on what effect i am after, the Dodge, Burn and Smudge tool are vital in my rendering application.
using layer styles such as Multiply, Overlay and Darken achieves fab grunge styles when applied correctly.

With these images particular, I really enjoyed creating the lighting effects, and the contrast of light and dark is what i like about these particular illustrations.
