In this, the third of Keg Creek Brewing Company’s delicious craft beers, I deviated from how I normally illustrate and went for just some raw digital painting. I usually do a pencil sketch first, but this time around, it just felt better to take pen to tablet and start making layers.
This is for the Keg Creek IPA label, named for the creek that runs right behind the brewery. As the label says, the creek was so-named when some barrels of whiskey were found sometime in the 1800s. This is an IPA I actually like. The guys at Keg Creek wanted to create an honest, true IPA but step away from the trend of hopping your face off.
