So I keep thinking about getting involved in digital art, its easy isn’t it, you just draw shapes on a screen and hey presto there is an image!. Well..that’s what I thought, but the reality is a bit different. I bought Affinity Designer for the windows laptop. I don’t have a drawing tablet, so its a mouse and cursor click all the way. Add to it that finding tutorials that are at such a beginner level (I haven’t used design software very much if at all before). Apparently Ipad and Procreate is what I should be using, but I’m not spending several hundred pounds just to find I don’t get along with the subject. Anyway, yesterday I found a web page with a tutorial on it, so I have given it a go. Several hours and a LOT of cussing later I have a finished picture. Yes I have learnt a lot, I definitely want to learn more, the software is vast, can do so much and is confusing when you are reading a tutorial for Ipad! It may not become my regular art form, but I do definitely want to learn and use this much more.
So here it is, what do you think for my first “real” picture design.
Other than this I have also completed my day 19 notebook page. The test this time is with Sharpie pens. I was not quite feeling it this morning, and I went for easy peasy doodles. Im not happy with my page, but for a change its not the fault of the paper, its all down to my lazy design.
I saw a quote on Instagram today, and I just had to borrow it and write it for myself, the timing was perfect as today was HAIRCUT day!!! “I don’t have grey hair, I have Wisdom Highlights”
Thats it for me today, I’m off to find more digital art tutorials – after seeing the kids, dealing with the washing on the line, cooking tea, watching some TV etc etc etc!
