Another new iPad Pro painting using Procreate.

I wanted to just keep it simple and concentrate on a limited color palette.

Surprise assignment.

A few months ago, was asked if wanted to do a portrait of Pokemon's leader in Japan, Mr. Ishihara, for a special edition of a Pokemon card. I was excited and nervous about taking on this task but very soon all that just resolved to a focus on the job at hand. It was to be 18" x 24" in size so a framed version could be presented to Mr. Ishihara for his 60th birthday. There were also regular sized Pokemon cards made from this for Mr. Ishihara to hand out. 
I was also given a copy of both the full size poster art and several regular sized Pokemon card versions. One of them with Mr. Ishihara's signature. I had the larger size framed and is on my wall in my art studio at home, which will soon be followed by the playing card signed version.
So many people were involved with getting this approved and printed but I mostly worked with Chris Franc (art direction) and Dave Bennett (card design frame and text)... I thank you guys for all the help in getting this done and I thank my employer for the honor of illustrating this card.

4th Procreate painting on iPad Pro...

For this week's painting in Procreate on iPad Pro I got a bit more complicated than usual. Took much longer because Procreate is clunky for painting if you are used to painting in Photoshop on a Cintiq.
I did two different versions. I wasn’t completely happy with the standard color palette so I shifted it over to something a bit more dramatic.

NEW iPad Pro painting!

3rd painting I've done in Procreate on my new iPad Pro, using a limited default color palette that came with the app. 
Currently I'm working on another painting and opening up the palette and using different brushes.

First new drawing of 2018

At least in my sketchbook. I've done other drawings for my day job that I can't show.
