First Digital Artwork Completed!

Posted by Aonly - May 3rd, 2020


Armed At Last!

I finally went ahead and got myself a drawing tablet (XP-PEN), and I am having a lot of fun playing with it. After a bit of research I also decided on Krita for drawing (I cannot even remotely afford Photoshop!) and have been experimenting a lot with the different tools. It is worth noting that I am a complete novice when it comes to digital art, and even shading and coloring for that matter. I have zero experience with any of it, however I have drawn a fair number of black-and-white sketches with pencil so this is all new to me! So far I am only using the pencil, Q-tip, and a few texture brushes for my new pictures (Vault 68) as I get used to the virtual medium in order to make it feel as familiar as possible.


Ambitions!

I am likely going to do a few more face-focused pictures going forward in order to continue to experiment with the hardest part of drawing and get used to shading dynamic skin. I do want to try to experiment a bit with anime styles, and possibly redo my old posts in color; which if I do I will not be deleting or replacing them but rather posting anew so I can track my stylistic progress and see what worked and what didn't. I have completed another pencil-and-paper drawing featuring a rather larger egg which has not yet been posted, so I may try to colorize it before posting it.

Sounds great! I look forward to seeing more of your artwork.

Thanks!
I'm very excited and even nervous to start producing visual arts, it's something I've always wanted to do but never really had the opportunity to do.
