Tiger, my dog (coincidentally also the greatest dog who has ever lived), wishes you all a healthy and safe New Year. He also wants you to know that my website, www.elliostration.com, is up and running, some kinks still need to be worked out, yadda yadda. 

WE'RE ALL GOING TO GET HAPPIER AND RICHER BECAUSE THE ECONOMY CANNOT GET ANY WORSE. THE LOGIC IS UNDENIABLE!! U.S.A! U.S.A.!

-b.e., the last day of '08

everyone has a different way of working.
everybody.

I was lucky enough to find the initial sketch that I made for this final piece, and well, for this one that I did last year it is pretty much cut and dry.
It was more or less an experiment with certain kinds of brush presets; in this case I basically scanned a sketch and went right overtop of it on a painted layer, no other layers, like texture layers or blending layers accompanied it. The textures on the rocks were made pretty easily by blowing up a large pastel brush and turning the opacity down way low and just bricking it.

*sorry about the beginning glitch, this was the best uploaded version blogspot could handle. The actual version doesn't contain weird gridding crap.*
