Thanks to this site here, I’ve taken baby steps in digital painting. Not easy for me! Had to learn about brushes, mixing colours, transparency, layers, and flow. I recommend the lessons here to give you a hint of how to proceed. I still haven’t been able to cobble together a decent palette, but will work on it today.
Strangely enough, This wasn’t done on my big computer with the spiffy Intuous 4 tablet, but on my little computer, with the old Bamboo stylus. I’ve now seen that tool retailing for $34. It seemed less intimidating, and I’m easily intimidated. Still, this is a start, and it’s fine to get into a new medium.
