Swamp

I started this color sketch for today’s post, but I started to spend too much time on it, so I just stopped where I was at and called it a night. Hopefully it’s interesting enough as is.

Incidentally, I did this all on the Cintiq, and I realized from doing the initial rough sketch that another advantage of the Cintiq is the ability to zoom in when drawing detail. Obviously I zoom in and out while painting detail, but because I usually start my illustrations with a sketch on paper, I didn’t realize how much of an advantage it is to get up close when doing that initial step (although I still prefer the feel of real paper).

  1. I do agree with you. Even as an amateur illustrator, I love to draw on paper but I have been exploring with digital tools more. Some apps/programs can produce some amazing work.
