About Craig

I am an illustrator and animator living in San Diego. I work with all kinds of applications... Always looking for drawing and painting software that is quick and effective and so digitally clean.
I am very fond of the mess of traditional media as well and hope to combine the un-messiness of digital tools with the messy results of traditional art tools to communicate, illustrate and share.

Here are some experiments with Studio Artist.
Studio artist is an odd mix of refined digital tools and thousands of ways to mess with those tools. The combination is both fun and frustrating and really challenges me to focus on the communication - because the medium has a life of its own!

A couple of fun Xmas Paint Synth presets

Just a couple Paint Synth presets for sharing:cd_wet_scribblelinercd_wet_scribbleliner_WCline01Wet, self collapsing (bigger sizes) presets that have a nice texture.Good for drawing raggedy lines at smaller sizes and good for drawing out nicely textured fills at larger sizes. These were used for the image here:merry-christmas-2016See More

Some other places I am posting SA created art
This blog is a nice receptacle for happy light material... I have been posting here with contributions to
and will be adding other efforts as well.
This blog is where I am channeling material that is more adult oriented... The experiments posted here are often SA created art - but also several other nice drawing applications are represented.

alpha composite option query

Hi,I'm working with alpha layers and was wondering if the alpha / alpha1 composite options are the best way forward if I want to paint a few brush strokes in a layer?..It seems that using 'replace' composite leaves a sort of haloing around the brush stroke when all the layers are viewed, alpha composite seems to remove this problem, or is it my imagination?thanksSee More
