Artist Scott Elliott Incredible Hybrid Arts

My process has evolved over time. Like many artists, I started doodling when I was a kid. Over the years, I’ve developed a unique style in my art that almost always incorporates sea life or other living things presented in a surreal or abstract way.

I’ve been inspired by artists like Giger, Adonna Khare, Samual Gomez and Anton Semenov. In the past couple of years, my process has transitioned from traditional graphite or pen and ink or watercolor painting on paper to hybrid digital art. I call it hybrid digital because I take a high resolution digital photo of my completed artwork, import it to my I-Pad Pro (with Ipad pencil) and retouch with an Autodesk app called Sketchbook.

The retouching process allows me to zoom right down to the pixel level so I can work on the fine details. It also allows me to add more contrast and to blend with really smooth transitions. I’m careful not to apply too much automation with Sketchbook. What I mean by this is taking the time to draw in Sketchbook the same way I would as if on paper. Some aspects are automated such as using layers and applying a background colors that can be switched off and on. This is very helpful for producing quality PNG files that can later be used for applying my artwork to products such as t-shirts and coffee mugs that I am now selling on my website ( My hybrid digital process is not a shortcut or a way to reduce time in developing the art. I spend an average of 40 to 60 hours on each piece of original artwork and another 40 to 60 hours retouching in Sketchbook.
