Think I may have finished this one now. 🙂

First ever attempt at digital painting.

First ever digital painting, havent tried digital painting until now.

The words on the diary pages read “Love all that you can, the more that you can love with all of your heart, the stronger you will be.”

The Diary

Workinprogress night4 – Digital Painting

diaryjepg2

Another night sat with my tablet, another night of adding some more slow progress to this…. 🙂 added some more details to sheep painting in background, worked on the wooden watercolours box, and now trying to get down the basic colour and lines down for the desk surface…. Trying to work out the line patterns on the desk wood in my head is hurting my head a bit. ^^’ I feel like the desk surface will be one of the hardest parts to get down. But I’m sure I’ll get there eventually. 🙂 Slow and steady … like Aesops tortoise.

Workinprogress night4 – Digital Painting

New piece start/Trying out digital

 

*****Work in Progress*****

Got a tiny cheap little graphics tablet in the post today at a price which is pretty good for a poor student. I’ve never really tried digital art before but I wanted to start to try some out. It took me all afternoon today just to get it to work (until I realised a major mistake I made was putting the battery in the pen the wrong way around -____- …… oops…..)

A lot of frustration today in the form of technical mishaps which led to retreating momentarily to lift some weights and punch some pillows to let out the brief rage. :’) However… I eventually got stuff working, and have made a start on some new art…. 🙂 I feel this one might be slow going, as this is my first time working with digital media but I’m really excited to try out digital drawing/painting. I think the edited and imported photo of my traditional drawing of the diary currently looks really nice. 🙂 I wrote the text I wanted for the diary pages with the digital pen. Now that everything is set up my plan is to plan out the rest of the picture and then try to paint with the digital.

Exciting stuff, will see how this new picture progresses, I am sooo excited for it. 🙂 ❤
