Speed Art: Game Character Sketches Rendered in Flash

Jeff Willis, the creator of beloved characters including McDivot from Fairway Solitaire, mixes old and new technology to bring his art to life. He begins each piece with a pencil sketch on paper. Once he is satisfied with the look and feel, he scans the drawing into his computer where he uses Adobe Flash to refine and add color.

Here are two videos of Jeff at work. We’ve sped it up so that you can see a rapid transformation!



Fairway Solitaire is now available for more devices! Just this month it has launched on Google Play, Amazon, Windows 8, and as a free PC download; great additions to the already existing Apple App Store version.
