So I got a few messages from fellow Matsians (people in my MATS A class) about this today-yes it is digital-I did scan in tissue paper-but my scanner is on the Fritz so I pieced it together in Photoshop. I drew the owl in Sketchbook-just the black outline with the pen tool-it's like a Sharpie, then I painted it in PAINTER using gouache, digital watercolor and water color-then I brought it over to photoshop where I layered everything-all my scanned in pieces. Then I painted in Photoshop with airbrush and regular paint brush-with multiple on. Some of the images are from photos I took with my iPhone of stuff in my apt as well. I brought them into Photoshop as well. :)
Then when it was all done, I brought it back to Sketchbook pro did the lettering and then used magazine clipping art to do the colors in the words.
So the owner of Captive8 in Australia has apologized to me, but she has not paid me. She is upset with me for sharing what she did on here and other social media. I again will say I am not trying to hurt her, but I want to make other artists aware that someone is stealing artwork from the internet and using it. I have given her the chance to pay me and then I told her that I will definitely post this. The new story is that someone else gave my work to her. She hasn't told me who, and hence why it appears to me that she is lying because her first reaction was to say that it looked "similar". It's a real shame that someone would run their company this way. She needs to pay and I am giving her a huge break on my licensing fee, so you would think she would do this instead of having a lawsuit. I will keep you posted!

The logo that she made sometime this month. As you can see she used the EXACT same image, she didn't even bo…
Today I discovered that my art was stolen and used for a logo without payment. It is for a fundraising charity, but if they did take it, the graphic design company did https://www.facebook.com/captiv8solutions'
I am really not happy. I have sent cease and desist and waiting.
This week we have been doing foxes. I have tons of different ideas and designs. One thing that I always do is start with a page of SKETCHES...usually more realistic before I go to cartoony. Here are all my sketches from the mini assignment!
