Part 5 of 5: Garbage Pail Joe - Jugs-Lovin’ Joe (34.6a) and Garbage Pail Joe - Joey Juggeroni (34.6b) - (My Original Art) - My Process!
Hey ho Roboteers! As promised on Monday, here is Garbage Pail Joe - Jugs-Lovin’ Joe (34.6a) and Joey Juggeroni (34.6b) before I added the weathered, worn, and stained paper appearance.
This is actually my final ‘a’ and ‘b’ DRAWING for this project. With the exception of my original ballpoint pen sketch idea, everything so far has ALL been illustration and done in Adobe Illustrator as scalable vector art. After this point in my process it stopped being ‘illustration’ and became Photoshop photo-manipulation.
In this final illustration phase I’ve refined the drawing and colors and added new final elements. I’ve added more chubby nudes on scattered papers, added my snot covered ‘Vader Maus’ in front of my monitor, moved the spilled nasty looking coffee further up in the composition of the drawing, oh yeah… and added a piss soaked keyboard too!
I’m not going to get into the details of my process of creating the weathered, stained and worn out paper appearance. Briefly, it was a series of different techniques I’ve learned over the years along with a few online Photoshop tutorials I read as I was experimenting with the worn appearance.
If this is something you’re interested in trying, I recommend some Google searching for tutorials that make sense in context of your drawing and that also work for you. You really need to be dogged and determined while searching because I couldn’t find any one single source that encompassed everything I wanted to do.
Good luck gang and I truly hope you enjoyed my Monday New Art and week long process posts this week. Many thanks to all my readers. You are what keeps me plugging away at this.
As a reminder, here’s a link to the finished version of Garbage Pail Joe - Jugs-Lovin’ Joe (34.6a) and Joey Juggeroni (34.6b) for comparison.
