52 Weeks: Week 12 – Digital Painting!

So I missed weeks 10 and 11, and week 9 was sort of a cop-out. I didn’t miss them because I wasn’t working on art, but because of the holidays. My mind was elsewhere – with family, which is more important than anything else. It is so important to recharge and rest, and take some time away from the screen, in order to be able to create.

For Christmas, I was given a Wacom Tablet! I have been wanting one for years. Now I am on a new mission – to learn to use it, and use it well. This week, I am going to share 2 old drawings that have been re-imagined through digital painting. These are not yet where they will be when I am a little bit more experienced, but for my first week using a brand new tool, I am pretty pleased.

I would like to thank Will Terry for amazing video lessons that are explicit and affordable. I am learning quickly from him, though there is so much to learn, and that’s both scary and exciting.

Here is Ted in digital colour:
