Digital painting

October 19, 2009

For his birthday in 2005, Seb got a huge Wacom pad. He used to draw a lot but kind of fell out of it since the babies came. So, a few weeks ago I decided to install it on my computer and (insert the Tabernacle Choir singing Hallelujah!) it is just wonderful! I love it so much! I have been using it to touch up on my prints, but yesterday I actually started practicing digital painting. It is not very easy (especially since I have no experience of real painting…), but you have to start somewhere. Here is what I have so far:

FlickaShe is really not finished yet (I know a part of the skirt is still without color, and I want to make a background), but I love her! It was so much fun!

I’m heading into the midterm-exam week and have a few exams and paper due dates lined up ahead of me. Think of me as I make my way through the week! I can’t wait to have my “reading week” next week so that I can catch up on some school work and my creative work. :)

    Hi Ida, one of your fellow fishies visiting… She’s so cute! Wonderful job especially since you’re still learning, but I never would have guessed :-) She’d be a great addition to your Etsy shop. Hope you have lots more fun with the tablet. See you in the fishbowl!
