A digital painting i finished on 26-08-2013
This is a piece i did around August 9 or something.. i felt like editing a skull into the smoke and draw the shoulders and just improve it a bit but maybe i’ll do that later because for now i think it’s okay.
A new drawing/painting I’ve made.. I have become much more aware of my weaknesses but also continue to improve.
The things that frustrate me are: anatomy (i should have this down by now), shading (this is a huge problem) and linework.. I would like to get rid of all those lines because it makes my stuff look cartoonish and I’d like to become a digital artist who mainly does semi realistic paintings.
Then there are things I am pretty satisfied with: my sense of color (I feel like my intuition is pretty good), my increasing knowledge of drawing/editing software, my capability of making something and improving along the way without any real schooling on the particular subject and perhaps my passion to keep on doing what i like no matter what anyone says!
Now onto the technical aspect.. I used my brand new Wacom Bamboo!! Yes i have a new tablet! Woohooo! This is a enormous improvement over my old Wacom Sapphire (dating back to 2002). I’d also like to note that I use Pixelmator for my drawing/painting and often iPhoto for any last minute easy color editing.
This is a drawing I made using this picture: http://nikxstock.deviantart.com/art/Something-else-III-144089695
It’s a digital drawing I made in the editing program Pixelmator (which is for mac), I also have a colored version but I figured that it looks nicer in black and white.
I’ve been making quite a lot of digital art lately and a lot of sketches where many of them can be found on my deviantart: http://eev11.deviantart.com/gallery/
I haven’t been particularly proud of my skills lately because I feel that I’m not improving fast enough.. But like many people say: practice makes perfect! So I’ll just draw a lot more.
