Instagram for Artists

For the past two-and-a-half months, I have been posting my drawings on my Instagram account. Many artists participate in Instagram’s media sharing community, due to the ease and speed with which images can be posted and seen using mobile devices. I’ve found Instagram to be a valuable way to enjoy other artists’ creations and to share my art projects.

Here are a five of my favorite Instagram images. [click an image to see its Instagram post]

Penguin Pillow

Now that hockey season is over, penguin pillow can finally put his scarf away for the summer.

NOTE: This paper and pencil drawing was scanned as a 600 dpi TIFF and then processed using Photoshop. The information in the tutorial “Quick Tip: Clean Up Your Traditional Drawings in Photoshop” was essential to achieve attractive Photoshop clean up results. In the past, I primarily used Levels to adjust the tonal range, but after trying this tutorial I found better results by using Curves (at least with this drawing).
