Christine

By in Blender 3D, digital

3D is challenging stuff. I’ve learned a little about putting in backgrounds. Lighting is a whole different thing. Also, this is the first car I made. Others are less blocky. But it reminds me of the car from the Stephen King novel. #b3d

Various Men, and a Dragon

By in digital, heads, men, paintings, sketches

One of my big problems with digital was that the line was sort of more wiggly, and things would get away from me. I’m feeling more in control of it now, however, and it’s almost like drawing on paper for me, now. More work, however. Not as relaxing staring into the screen, and thinking about […]

Colourful Background People

By in digital, heads, sketches

I’ve always liked the “cloud brush” in Photoshop. Again, I feel the purely digital people are getting better with practice. I can also scan in some pencil drawings from the book, and colour those, as well!

Tom Swift

By in Blender 3D, digital

I did this for a Facebook “challenge,” meaning there was a call for illustrations on the subject of “Tom Swift and his [adjective] [adjective] [noun]. I used it as a chance to practice my 3D spaceships and various digital chops. I could rant a little about the non-user friendliness of the program Blender, but I’m […]

Bronze Age Hoard

By in Blender 3D, digital

It’s either that, or a child’s playset. At any rate, I’m childishly thrilled that I can create realistic-looking objects out of my head using the Blender 3D software. The carpet was kind of an accident. #b3d

A doodle I made answering @inkyelbows challenge [link here] You can see other responses via the hashtag #2018doodle . Thought I should have it here in my blog. Don’t know why I thought of Star Wars. Guess it’s the recent movie, which I haven’t seen.

A plausible cat outfit for the current weather. They seem not to need booties.

Digital Sketchbook

By in digital

I wish I could set up a digital sketchbook, analogous to the paper sketchbooks I have so many of. I guess I can confine all my sketches to a file folder, which I can look at. Happy with how my digital things are looking, finally. I have the feeling I can draw anything I can […]

I stole the pattern for the background from my Dover Book of Ornament. Which was fun to do.

Digitally Blonde

By in digital

Despite difficulties with hardware, I’m very happy with how the digital work seems to be progressing. Colours are a hard thing to get around, mainly because the palette here is potentially infinite. I’m also getting better at fixing things up, because the line of the stylus rarely goes where you want it to, so you […]
