My little notebook computer is great. But it’s a little silly to use, sometimes, as this guy demonstrates. He’s drawn in melty watercolour pencils and (I didn’t realise it at the time), melty black/purple roller pen. This is a Regency little girl, inspired by Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. Of course, the real little girl […]
Posting various sketches I’ve been doing. Mainly to do with the new “Star Wars” movie, which I finally saw, and “Emma” by Jane Austen. Star Wars had some pleasant new characters, but it was basically a rehash of the same old plot. I mean where did they find the time and materials to build a […]
My sketchbook is a bit like my written journal. I sit down with it, with no idea of what I’m about to write (or draw). Kind of therapy, I suppose, or like practicing scales if you were playing the piano. The bottom corner is a gentleman I saw walking by on the street. Above was […]
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 […]
Bonus blackwinging. Mrs. Birtwhistle and Mr. Boggedy.
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 […]
Various items from the sketchbook. I’m trying to work out of my comfort zone. The last two are more like what I usually enjoy doing. I love horses. Worked at a horse farm for one summer. Trying here for more “frosty colours, rather than the warm tones I often use. I’ve got better ideas about […]
I’ve been so deep into digital, that I began to wonder whether I could still do useful things with paper. Below is a drawing a made during a phone coversation (they’re often long, at least with my friend). Black ballpoint pen in my sketchbook. Above is a made-up woman painted on a sample of my […]
Some new sketches. I’m always drawing, but not been putting everything up, even though I used to do that.
I’m reasonably pleased with how digital painting is progressing. Takes a different skill set to work with the stylus, and the program. Colour’s never been my strong suit, but I’ve learned things in watercolour to make images bright and interesting, and am learning the same thing here, I hope. All the tutorials on Deviantart.com and […]
