The Professor and the Trypanosome.

I just recently did a portrait of a retiring professor who studies some of the parasites I covered in the Parasites! comic.  This was the first image I've ever drawn entirely in the computer, using my new Intuos tablet.

I set the Photoshop pen up to draw like a pencil, before going on to 'ink' the image on a separate layer once I was happy with my pencils.  Using the techniques I use to draw on paper I was able to achieve a piece of work as good as, if not better than I would normally produce through drawing on paper and later scanning into the computer.

  1. It was a voyage of discovery to work with Eddie on this project. The remit was to capture the essence of Professor Andy Tait, who is an illuminary. With remarkably little drafting, we got there - see the eyes.
    The portrait was well received.
