We flew out to see our Denver kids last weekend. I fired up my Surface Pro 4 on the plane and painted a picture of the stewardess. JUST KIDDING… that was a JOKE… really… well, kinda… anyway… that tablet is a really legitimate option for digital painting on the… Continue Reading “RATS!”
Several years ago I did a job for Mission Hockey and as part of the payment process I received a bunch of their latest hockey gear. For some reason my wife is not fond of this sort of compensation package (she seems to be a big fan of hard… Continue Reading “My Surface Pro 4 Review”
I just finished up a job that was chocked full of black and white illustration. I took one of the small spots, added some color to it, and here you can see my process from start to finish.
Last Sunday the pastor’s sermon was entitled “RELEASE THE HURT” so I immediately started my sermon notes with a pixie and a viking getting ready to “release the hurt” on somebody. Much to my surprise, the sermon went in a totally different direction than I had envisioned.… Continue Reading “Release The Hurt”
Another quick picture (and video) I made on the iPad. I just discovered an option that lets you see the brush cursor as you paint in the ProCreate App… which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but for me was a game changer. Being able to see exactly what size your brush… Continue Reading “Digital Painting With Procreate”
…so I’m guessing the humidity OUTSIDE on Sunday afternoon was somewhere in the 600 bazillion percent range… so I made the smart decision and stayed INSIDE in the air conditioning and colored up this quick little picture on my iPad using the ProCreate app.
Once a year I seem to go on a rant about the iPad and how I wish it were a better device for mobile digital painting. All I’m wanting to do is collapse into a chair in my living room in front of a football… Continue Reading “My Annual Ipad Digital Painting Rant”
In a desperate attempt to catch up to present times, I have combined my 2013 and 2014 sketchbooks into one volume. These digital sketchbooks can be viewed on most modern devices using the free Kindle App. The Dennis Jones 2013-14 Digital Sketchbook is now… Continue Reading “2013/2014 Digital SketchBook”
Every time there’s an update for iMovie I open it, look at the interface, have absolutely no clue as to how to work it and then attempt to make something with it in order to relearn how to use it. So here’s my latest… Continue Reading “Learning iMovie… Again”
I was recently asked to teach a digital painting class this fall at Huntington University. I have agreed to do this and I’m looking forward to sharing what I know on the subject. Being able to take the idea in your head, put it… Continue Reading “Digital Painting Class This Fall”
The carnival was in town, and even though William Wallace had an epic battle scheduled for the next morning, he and his friends still visited the face painting booth. …the last picture is a little something for Hearthstone players. 🙂
Ok, well, judging from a little walk in the woods this weekend I would have to say we folks here in Northeastern Indiana have successfully transitioned out of snow removal season and launched directly into inquisitive flying bug season… and who doesn’t love that time of year.… Continue Reading “Bug Season”
A few years ago when Apple came out with this newfangled device called an iPad, I acquired one just months after it was released. My hope was that it would work as a portable digital sketch pad, and it did… well, sorta… but with… Continue Reading “Unfortunately Wacom Finally Made My Dream Tablet”
This is for my friends on YouTube who continue to send me kind letters asking what my work process is. This picture started out as a doodle in my sketchbook. I scanned it into Photoshop, (CS6), made it a multiply layer and began blocking… Continue Reading “Flying The Coop”
