Wonderland Disc Golf Course Graphic

Created this illustration for the soon to be open Wonderland Disc Golf Course at ACE Adventure Resort. ACE sit's on a parcel of land that has been called Wonderland for decades. If you have the chance to visit ACE you will truly be amazed at the Wonders it beholds.

Process... Part Deux

Process of an Illustration

I always enjoy a look behind the curtain, to see what goes into an artist illustration.
I also enjoy sharing my process. Hope you enjoy. 

First step is a rough sketch.

Next I scan it in and using photoshop begin to draw over the sketch, tightening it up and preparing the final composition. 

Continue refining the final illustration.

When I'm happy with the line art, I begin to lay in flat colors

After the flat color is on, I add highlights and shadows...

Lastly I add the design aspects to mimic a comic book cover. Masthead, (Faux) Publisher Logo,
and cover blurb...

Over the past few weeks, I've been volunteering my time for a great cause here in Hawaii. A comic for The Friends of the Children's Justice Center Maui to bring awareness to the issue of child abuse. This particular piece is supposed to be engaging to the kids, to give them the confidence they need to reach out to others for help and to help them realize there are people who are there for them.
