Description This vector based illustration is of a cool and happy young lion enjoying his skateboard. He is listening to his white ipod. It is based on an earlier artwork of the same subject, but created in 3D (lightwave). This new one was created using illustrator, and has a far more graphic look, using blocks of colour controlled in shape by bezier curves. Using this technique makes it easier to produce different versions of the lion on a skateboard.
Martin Davey, Southampton Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Hi,
Welcome to my gallery, which contains largely illustrations for the childrens market.
I like my paintings to be as accessible as possible to a wide audience. Detail and colour are important, combined with a simple visual message for any one to enjoy.
The artwork is created entirely in the art program, photoshop, from the rough drawing up to the finished work,using a drawing tablet.
My career has largely been based in creating artwork for the animation industry.
