Hoodie Guy

By in digital, paintings, sketches

This is actually all digital, drawn with this set of brushes here. I’ve been doing a lot of digital drawing, but have been nervous about putting it up. Much harder to draw digitally, I think, because of all the planning you need to do. I can draw on paper with pencils and watercolours, and some […]

Spaceships for Beginners

By in digital, paintings

I painted some spaceships today, according to this guy’s instructions. May not do it again this way, but I learned a few things.

She on the other hand, is wholly digital. Next time, maybe: scenery!

Grumpy Writer

And a lazy digital treatment. I’m learning more tricks, but am finding I get my best results when starting with a pencil drawing and scanning it in. I can draw with the stylus, but it takes a lot more time. The thing really doesn’t like obeying what your hand wants it to do. Maybe if […]

Space Flyer

By in color, digital, sketches, women

Since the drawings I did for “Rank the Prank” are part of the broadcast, and give away surprises in the show, I’m beavering away at creating similar things which show off how I’ve advanced with the digital painting thing. This is always hard because I’m never certain about my work. Also, it’s been a bit […]

Digital Watercolours

By in digital, paintings, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Kyle Webster has an excellent selection of digital brushes that work with Photoshop. Here’s an early effort. It’s a pretty good facsimile of something I could have knocked out in a couple of minutes (minus drying time) in “traditional media,” but it’s nice to have these tools.

Digital Dalliance

By in color, digital, heads, women

I hope I’m not wasting my time trying to paint digitally. My line, which I think looks nice enough in watercolour or little pen and ink drawings, to me doesn’t look so appealing in digital. Still, this post gives me hope. It’s from a “famous” digital artist, discussing how her drawing has improved over the […]

Drew a tiger while on the phone last night. And then coloured and textured it here.

People and Backgrounds

By in color, digital, men, paintings

I’m pretty thrilled over the control I have of the stylus. Working on backgrounds and lighting now, as well as the people.

Further Digital People

By in color, digital, sketches

Digital is like pen and ink, in that it’s hard to know when to let go of something. There’s always one other little improvement to make. Happily, I seem to have tamed my stylus, which was giving me all sorts of headaches, like a pencil nib that keeps breaking off, or a pen that blobs, […]
