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).
Very mysterious, Pop. Makes me want to write something mysterious. It has a great mood. Love you!
Thanks, sweetie! I’d look forward to reading your story!
Thanks back, Pop!
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.
Yeah, there’s no point in resisting the advantages of technology as long as you don’t completely forget about or abandon the advantage of tradition. There’s a place for each.
