I wanted to make her hair carrot red but even though I changed the colour it remained the same violet as her dress. Looks like the oil brush tool could be useful for cross hatching.
A look inside my real and virtual sketchbook. Based in Catalonia, Spain.
The beach is flooded but two people swimming today.
Guitar classes have started again. Chosen "Retrato Brasileiro" by Baden Powell for the next adventure. My teacher says it is obligatory to take him seriously this year as apparently we are moving up a level. Ooops. Now he's given me two sets of excercises to get up to speed with my right hand. I can do it fine at home but as soon as I am in a class my hands turn into jellyfish. He's started his subtle hinting that I have to learn to play in public which I firmly refuse to do.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5C8b5Wtmzk
Thank goodness nobody watches me draw.
Oh boy, do I have a lot to learn about layers! I can't see where to type in a name for each layer. Line art on one, colours on another. I used "waxy crayons" for the lines and "digital watercolour" and "digital airspray" for colouring. I still haven't worked out where to change the pen pressure to make the lines taper. Plod on, and find out.
It's bucketing with rain.
I have got to bar six in "Mysterious Habitats" but it still sounds pretty wonky. I am really going to have to start doing the exercises in the music theory book.
Found a bunch of well known guitarists having a good laugh with a guitar. Here's the link.
First drawing attempt on the tablet, not a scrap of paper involved. Actually it's the second drawing, the first vanished quite suddenly and sent me back to the desktop. I've no idea what I pressed. I used one of the "pattern" pens for the linework, paintbucket for colouring in and "digital airbrush" for the shading. It's quite a wierd sensation using a tablet but I love it. The image I worked on is 500 by 500 pixels which I have not resized.
The traffic is insane, everyone rushing to do everything before Thursday because Spain is shutting down for the day. Only two people in the sea today and four sunbathers, three cyclists, two roller skaters and the usual tank ladies.
