Miz Diaz

What?! There's still a pulse in this old blog?!
Yeah, it's been far too long since I've updated this thing, but here's something new to put on here as the first post of 2013. I did this caricature of Cameron Diaz for the current Caricaturama Showdown 3000 challenge, though I must admit it's been ages since I last participated in that thing too. Hopefully this entry will lead to some more in the weeks ahead, as I really do need some sort of kick in the butt to get back in the creative groove again.

I love your work, but how do you get the lines like that in photoshop?

I don't use Photoshop to draw the outline. I'm still a traditional cartoonist, drawing on paper, transferring it onto illustration board and using brush and ink to do the finished line art. Only at that point do I use Photoshop to add colour to the scanned outline. Frankly, I've never been able to get line art anywhere near as good with Photoshop. Maybe it's possible using a Cintiq, but you just can't get the right angle or have as much control over the PS "brush" when using an Intuos tablet. Computers are vastly overrated as art tools. :)
