Igor by Onifaux Igor by Onifaux
This is my first project done with a Wacom tablet! I absolutely love it so far. It's mind boggling the amount of improvement I can see already.

This is a digital airbrushing I did of Igor from the movie Young Frankenstein. I always thought he was a fun character, and the black and white image gave me a chance to use my Wacom without worrying about color.

I started out by drawing the simple lines, adding shadows, and did a lot of blending, smudging, and blurring. To finish up I used the Dodge and burn tool almost exclusively to get the right lighting. I am really pleased with the way this turned out... Comments appreciated!

Damn straight it's an improvement, and, I can say that, because, even without knowing, that this was a digital piece, I thought, that this was a photograph!  Truly impressive!

Igor was my first drawing with a wacom tablet too.
we should find a club of igor fans who draw igor as first drawing with a wacom tablet.

I love this movie! He was such a fun character too! I think you did a great job capturing him, the only real thing I'd say is watch to make sure your crisper lines stay crisp as lets say his eyebrows look a little blurry. I like the transitions and lighting though.
