Portfolio and Projects
I’m trying out some 100% digital works. So far, I’ve learned:
1. Digital is not always faster.
2. Digital is much easier to change and correct immediately.
3. I like to draw with my face really close to my hand so I can see the little details that I’m adding. With a tablet, I have to lean into the monitor and not look at my hand. This will take some getting used to.
4. In general, it will take me a little time to get used to drawing on a tablet, but I think I will like it by the end.
I used a Bamboo Create tablet and a trial version of Sketchbook to draw the two images above. On the self-portraitish one, at some point in the near the end of the sketch, I accidentally selected a square that went from the elbow up to the top of the image. Then I deselected it and a tiny line remained at the elbow of my image. But I thought that was just a computer glitch and it would not show up in any other program…but there it sits. Now I know for next time.
