Winter Escape / Coco's Paradise Inn, Tuomas Korpi (2D)

Title: Winter Escape / Coco's Paradise Inn
Name: Tuomas Korpi
Country: Finland
Software: Photoshop

I painted this last year when I had some time off work, so it's not very new but I think it's still quite ok.

For a change I wanted to go with a more cartoony look with this one so I started out by doing some thumbnail sketching the traditional way by markers, pencils and inks, then scanned the rough sketches on my computer and started adding colour. I love the organic and somewhat wonky touch you get with traditional media that usually lacks from my digital sketches, so doing the base work with pencils and inks suited for this picture very well.

In the painting process the hard part was not to lose any of the flow and looseness my initial sketch had, but in the end I think it turned out fine. I had a lot fun with all the small details, boat trip maps, bar menus etc. Hope you like it :)

I actually gave a short lecture of the whole process behind this painting (and couple others) early this year, so if you have any questions I just might have some material ready.

A very refreshing and inviting environment you've painted here. This is where I'll come to suck on a few Malibus whenever the weather here in Scotland gets too dreich to bear.
