So I finally decided to start experimenting with digital painting with my wacom tablet. This is my first attempt at "painting" digitally. I wouldn't liken it to painting because there's no physically tactile quality to the way in which you apply your strokes or the final image itself. Plus you're holding something with a point while you do brush-like strokes... not very intuitive in that respect. I'm more of a traditionalist and I don't know how much satisfaction I can really get through digital painting. Maybe one day when you can actually pick up a paint brush and paint on a screen I'll dig the process more. In any case, its definitely a handy thing to know in the world of animation.
Been a while since I posted anything. I've got some stuff to scan, i just get lazy about documenting work and would rather draw... but things have to be documented now and again. These are some sample drawings I did at the beach some weeks back. For some reason I ended up drawing lots of moms and their boys. I did a lot more but they only got half decent once I was warmed up. Haven't life-drawn in a while so it takes some getting back into. These where done straight in pen as I'm trying to become more and more direct with my line. All mistakes stay in the drawing. I think thats important for sketching.
