Technically not a zoo, but still...


... there are monkeys and stuff.

I really like this image Patrick. It seems no burdon to the Elephant to offer this ride! I wish I could join in.

Is it all digital?

Thanks June, the drawing is ink on paper but the painting is all digital. You can see it in progress here - http://drawboy.blogspot.com

Thanks for the link to the work process. I love how you begin with the sepia background. Does that all get deleted as you progress, or is it allowed to show through in parts? There seems to be a residual texture/colouring that 'knocks back' the brightness of pure digital colour very nicely.

(Sorry - I ask too many questions.)
I need to explore all this myself.

No, I like to let it peek through. I paint digitally in much the same way I do traditionally. I've been using a brown background since I was a kid and drew all over my Mom's grocery bags. Paper or plastic? Always paper!
