If you’ve been here before, you may know my preferred digital art program. I have been using Clip Studio Paint (or Manga Studio), since a colleague introduced it to me. Before then, I’ve been struggling with GIMP, which to be honest, left me with little motivation to actually draw.
I’ve been working with digital art for so long, I sometimes forget that it’s not quite tangible, not in the same way pencil lines on paper is. I make a mistake, I click “undo” a few times, and it’s like the mistakes have never happened at all. This makes me reckless and clumsy. I also can experiment more, take more risks and push my lines. I can work over the same drawing over and over again.
I take these long breaks from drawing for several reasons. In this case, it started with a flare up of carpal tunnel and my bad back, both problems motivating me to get myself into better shape, pay better attention to my posture and just not be so lazy most of the time.
Some more Sims fan art, featuring Johnny Smith, Ophelia Nigmos and Ripp Grunt.
This is the first in an Elegant Gothic Lolita styled series inspired by women in history who’ve gained some level of fame, or infamy, depending on who their story is told by.
I’m not all that happy with
some a lot of my older work. I thought my Mary Poppins turned out somewhat decently, though (it’s okay to say you like your old art!). I wanted to go back and revisit it, so for last night’s “2 hour drawing”, I finished it up a little bit more by making some minor corrections and painting in a backdrop.
