niceeee .. what did you use for coloring it? Did you hand color it or was it digital?

Dave James said...

Thanks, Nabeel:

I used Adobe Illustrator to do the color. So it was colored all digital.

Hey Dave,

Cool animals and nice coloring.
My tools are very simple, as you guessed I'm using the blue Col-Erase pencil and good ol' plain white copy paper! unfortunately that's all they have to offer at the studio I'm working at, but we get free water.....from the tap:D

Cool artwork! :-)
Cute cat. I wish I had adobe illistrator but I can't afford it. For now I'm using Word to draw and color....only if I had a sketchbook and a scanner...

Hey Dave,

Actually most of my drawings are 11 x 17.5 since I'm using the big (tabloid) copier paper.
The only good thing about using cheap paper is that you don't feel so bad wasting it! but that's also the ONLY good thing about. Would much rather draw on animation paper!
