This time, I decided to draw on my tablet.
Now Josh bought me Wacom's Bamboo Fun Tablet more than a year ago but to be honest, I've never really used it very much because I found it difficult to use. Don't get me wrong, it is a fantastic little device; the pen is comfortable to use and has an amazing pressure sensitivity. Definitely better than using a mouse!
The only problem is that I much rather to use Adobe Photoshop than the software (Corel Painter Essentials) it comes with, to draw.
While I am able to use the tablet to draw in Adobe Photoshop, I found it rather unsatisfying as it did not have the many awesome brushes found available in the Corel Painter Essentials.
I am aware that I can download the brushes but I am but a total n00b when it comes to this. I don't even know the types of brushes, let alone the names! I am strictly a sketch artist. I can't even colour right.
Thus, I am left with no choice but to learn a new software.
At the moment, I'm still learning :)
First, a quick sketch and colouring
Additional colouring and blending
Further shading and blending
It's still incomplete. Hopefully I'll be able to play with other types of brushes to see if I can bring her features out. I'm not good with how lighting reflects on people so we'll see how it goes.
So far, so good. I'm really enjoying the tablet, much to Josh's relief! :D
Too bad I didn't start sooner!
