This digital painting seems nicer with the “saturation” turned down. I’m still not happy with my digital work, as it doesn’t seem to come as easy, or look as natural, as the watercolour. Still, it’s an interesting challenge, and things always improve as you work on them. To make nice lines with the stylus, I have to use my arm, which doesn’t allow me to control things as tightly. Plus there are all those switches and layers to remember. That’s very left-brained. The stylus is not as nice a tool to wield as a brush is.
One might say “why bother,” but I think it’s a valuable skill to master. I want to be able to do it as fast and as quickly as the brush or pencil.
