Mi gusto El Tigre

Yay another post. As some of you might know (or not), I've been doing Background designs and paints for the Nickelodeon cartoon "El Tigre" for the past year, hence me being busy with other freelance projects on top of that. I kind of got an offbeat assignment for the show where I was to paint a romance novel cover using my style. It's a sorta realistic version of El Tigre's mom (Maria) and dad (White Pantera) getting ready for some lovin'. Below is a quick step by step. All this was done on a Mac with a gorgeous 21" Cintiq (mi gusta!!!) and Photoshop CS2.



Here's my "pencil" rough. I found some neat pencil / graphite / charcoal brushes for Photoshop and I thought they did a pretty good job of looking like something I'd put in my sketchbook.



Here's the color rough. Nothing too fancy... had to show this to Art Director Roman Laney and show creator Jorge Gutierrez to make sure they were happy with the colors.



...and here's the final painting! I basically just painted on top of the color comp and that took me about 7 hours or so. The End.
