Hands

This piece was done in charcoal pencil, after a few mockup sketches. Referencing a magazine ad, Brad feels that he was able to capture a moment of innocent curiosity, creating a soft feel to the piece that reflects the fragility of the butterfly that she is holding. This was a gift for a friend who helped him out a while ago. The total project took Brad about fifteen hours to complete.

Lady in the Water

This illustration was done in Adobe Illustrator CS2 using the gradient mesh tool. Brad thinks he got the mesh to flow nicely around the curvatures of the face, and the tonal changes in the skin look nice. He referenced a picture off of the internet as his source. This is one of his favorite gradient mesh pieces.

Cobra

This illustration project was done in Adobe Illustrator CS2, again, using the gradient mesh tool. It was Brad's first attempt at using this tool and he thinks it turned out rather well. Brad used the mesh around the body and the chrome of the car to give it that really shinny reflective look. he did this for his Father who owned this car for a little while before selling it.
