Tablets mean the world to a digital artist. That Is the Digital Artist Tablet not the kind from the pharmacy. No confusion there then.
I am just dipping my toes into that world of digital art. I love the worlds of Super Heroes, Dungeons and Dragons and Any form of Role-playing games. That is where I have taken my influence for these following pictures. I like to have a Character drawing for every Character I play.
I still draw and paint as If I was using a pencil and brush. I am sure this will change as I get to know what I am doing. As you can see I have a long way to go.
Here is an example of what I have been doing over the few days that I have had my tablet (intuos 5).
Feel free to give me feed back or even drop me any useful links that will help me on my way.
This first picture as you can see Is my drawing which I did a few weeks ago and scanned It Into the computer. I wasn’t confident to draw straight from Tablet on to the screen yet.
This Is as Far as I had gotten before I thought that saving my files would be a good move. remembering to do this at a good increment needs getting used to.
Not knowing how things are done, I just plodded on in the fashion that I was used to with paper. Yet I am very pleased on how this picture is coming along. Learning new skills like layers has been an amazing eye opener. traditional art means if you do It wrong then you Start again or except the mistake. Not any more.
Doing the detail I have found challenging to say the least. Getting In close to the picture you lose the overall look as you change tone and Colour of what the final look Is going to be. Doing everything in sections and then not having the skill or know how was frustrating to say the least.
Trying out new features of a computer program and tablet Is so much fun. If there Is something that I am not to sure about there happens to be a YouTube video that will cover it. I have spent a good deal of my time drawing trying to understand what the fantastic artist on the net have done to achieve what they have.
This Is my final. It Is nowhere near the incredible standard that people have got to. This Is my learning time and I would like to think In a few Months, no In a few years time I may have gotten to a standard that I can truly call myself an Artist. A Digital Artist.
What follows is a couple of drawings I did before the main one. Note that the Zombie I drew with the pen tablet. no scanning Involved. I will now take please In the fact that a few of you here on the Inter-webs will take the time to look at these and If so inclined leave me a comment. Tell me straight but not to straight OK.
The skull within was a total accident. I like happy accidents
Finished. For now. Catchya soon. See you on Twitter . @symatt
