Wings like Eagles


"Those who wait for the LORD
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary."

I created this knight and Dragon to go on a bounce ride for FunTec, Inc of Simpsonville, SC. I first drew the dragon out with pencil roughly. Then refined it using a light table and a mechnical pencil. I scanned in the pencil drawing as line art then used Adobe Streamline to convert the line scan into a vector based drawing. I then colorized the vector line drawing in Adobe Illustrator. The final product was printed life size!

Save Your Doodles

I have been an obsessive doodler ever since I was a kid. I would have never thought that my doodles would sell as artwork, but now it has. Here is a pencil doodle I did in an evenings worth of TV watching. Add a little scripture to it and convert it to a vector-based color graphic and it is ready to hang on the wall. We just got an order to produce a series of these.. works of art! - Greg
