Artist Tips

Digital Art Process

Here is a look at my digital artist process.
While going through my process I be using my latest design…..

Inspiration

Some artists say that its better to keep a sketchbook to get ideas out your head quickly…..however I’m not one that uses sketchbooks
As you know I’m not a person who draws….I was never any good at it. ( this is probably why I prefer digital work) So yes I skip the sketches.
I often keep a mental note or put the idea in the notepad in my phone though.
A few weeks ago I was on a road trip with my dad and the host said that he had discovered a long lost song by The Beatles. Now it seems like the station plays it non stop. My dad says that they should have never found it. I’m not so sure, its kind of catchy. The tune got stuck in my head and inspired these designs……

Starting the Creative process

Since much of my work is digital I will sit at the computer and start putting my idea on the screen.
Only the chores of the song was stuck in my head, so I only used one line from the song. Woof! Hey Bulldog, Hey Bulldog.
Find this artwork on my Society6 and Redbubble shop!
To see the programs for my art: Creative Resources
Once I have a basic design down I like, I will then save the original then make smaller edits or color changes then click > Save As ( edit name).
After seeing the final product, I created Hey Cats Pop Art and Hey Dogs Pop Art.

     

Hey Dogs Pop Art is perfect for dog lovers while Hey Cats Pop Art is perfect for cat lovers. I really like this vinyl pop art design!
Once all my designs are done and I’m happy with them. I resize them to 9000 pixels by 9000 pixels. This size will fit on everything, from wall tapestries to cell phone cases.

Uploading

Once the design is resized….. I then upload them to my Shops….
The Society upload process is very easy
  • name the product
  • tag the product so it can be found easily…. I aim for around ten tags
  • turn on the products that you want
  • click done
The Redbubble upload process is also easy. It seems like the products are more customizable though…..
  • name the product
  • tag the product so it can be found easily…. I aim for around ten tags
  • turn on the products that you want
  • open up the product and edit the design ( zoom in, zoom out, tile the design, stagger the design )
  • click done
Repeat this process for other designs
