Website Update Marsden Illustrator and Cartoonist


I just completed an update to my Ian David Marsden Illustrator and Cartoonist homepage.

The categories CARTOONS, ILLUSTRATION and LOGOS have been completely updated and now feature my Flickr Galleries. If you are viewing the site from a mobile device or Flash is not enabled you can click the link at the bottom to access the galleries directly.

I guess you already know about my personal BLOG since you are reading this post on it. ;)

Of course there is still the Flash Animation page that features samples of CORPORATE Flash projects, INTERACTIVE Flash, GAMES, BANNERS, E-CARDS and my YouTube Videos and Tutorials. Don’t forget to hover over the menus to get all the options and menus.


Die Ian Marsden Homepage gibt es selbstverständlich auch in DEUTSCHER SPRACHE

Mon site est disponible aussi en FRANCAIS.



“The Pianist” Freehand Sketch in Photoshop for my Facebook Page

“The Pianist” Freehand Sketch in Photoshop for my Facebook Page

A quick and rough digital cartoon scribble in Photoshop for my Facebook Page.

My Facebook page is HERE by the way, hint hint, if you feel like giving it a “Like” :)

Here is an image of the final result and also a YouTube video of the entire drawing process, uncut.

This sketch was made in under 30 Minutes but for the purpose of the video I sped the action up to around 9 Minutes.

I hope you enjoy it. Cheers!

Drawing a digital cartoon pencil sketch in AutoDesk SketchBook Pro 2010

I like SketchBook Pro very much for the purpose of rough sketching, layouts, storyboarding and generally creating the inital basic artwork which I then later use to import into other programs such as Illustrator, Painter or Photoshop for further coloring or line-art inking.

Sometimes I lay down some color in the sketches/concepts/layouts directly in SketchBook. It has some very useful coloring tools such as the advertising markers and airbrush.
