Wow...I was super behind here! I've been posting more regularly on Facebook and on Instagram (@artistkierstan), so if you want to stay up to date, I've been a bit more regular there! Blogging, unfortunately, is harder for me to keep up with but I'll try harder ;)
So, for the pieces posted above from bottom to top are: Avocado Maki, Black Tobiko Nigiri, Green Tobiko Uramaki (with salmon, cucumber and avocado), Kani (crab legs) Nigiri, and Ika (squid) Nigiri.
These were all created using a scanned ink drawing of each sushi piece and then painted using Photoshop. I'm still pretty much a beginner with Photoshop but I figured out how to create my own brush, which helped with the Green Tobiko Uramaki. I started off just making random dots on top of the rice for the tobiko eggs but I realized that was going to take forever so I made a selection of some of the dots I already made and defined the brush settings. It was great! I was so proud of myself because I haven't learned how to do that yet but I had noticed the option because it's right above the define pattern option, which I've used a ton when designing repeating patterns. So proud of myself!
What's your favorite kind of sushi? Still more pieces to come :)
