steampunk sketches

I enjoy doodling about with some of my steampunk sketches .

These were drawn with colortint pencils first into my art journal




I added a bit of pen and ink overdrawing for some shades and shadows




Now for the fun part ... I take so
e photos of the initial drawing and grunge it up with overlayers and colortints in my iPhone apps ...




It takes a while to play around with various combos of apps for iPhone photomanipulation.. enhancing color saturation, adding grunge and texture layers , and altering through exposing the photo in different apps ... if I get totally carried away I sometimes app stack as many as 20 different. apps or repeating the same iPhone app effect to get stronger outputs ...

all this can be done in Photoshop too I am sure, I just enjoy the limitations set by the iPhone apps and the creativity burst it gives me to come up with something that I enjoy looking at ;)
