“Ooze-Long” Work-In-Progress, by Helen E. H. Madden, 20 April 2011
This is a clean up of an earlier image I did on the iPad. I took it into InkPad, a vector drawing app on my iPad, and started tracing it, then exported it and continued working on it in Adobe Illustrator on my desktop computer. The next step will be to take the now much larger digitally inked drawing into ArtRage (again, on the desktop), where I can recolor it with fun and bloody colors using the watercolor brush.
Why am I doing this? A lot of folks have commented on how much they liked the original (which you can see here) and a few have stated they’d love to have it as a print, t-shirt, etc. So I’m working on making that happen. Hopefully I’ll finish this up in the next week and have prints of this ready to take to Balticon with me on Memorial Day weekend. Let me know if you’d like to buy a copy of this. I’m looking into printers now and am working to make this as good a deal possible for anybody who wants to buy a copy.
