Story Demo "Tarzan and the Lost Empire" with Pencil and Photoshop

In this demo, I illustrate something a bit different from the normal advertising assignments. I created a scene from E.R. Burrough's book "Tarzan and the Lost Empire.' I discuss some techniques I use in Photoshop, but mostly talk about the craft of making pictures that tell a story. Inventing visuals that aren't described in the source material is what makes story illustration so appealing. They complement and enhance the narrative in a wondrous way.
