2013, cyd, new

(no subject)

This is my first face. Made on the Wacom Intuous Draw Tablet. My first computer sketch, my first "oil" painting. I had watched a tutorial a few times, then went out on my own, using what I had learned. The hardest part was the sketching and detail. The software I use is ArtRage Lite. A key for it came with the tablet.

I didn't get it with this in mind. I didn't know of the existence of this software and its powers of art. Oil, watercolor, pen, pencil . . . all pressure sensitive. I've had the most fun with the paint tube and pallet knife selections. I haven't even tried to use the tablet in Photoshop yet.

I got the tablet with my photography in mind. For touch ups, it should be brilliant. And for general drawing on photos and being artsy and such. But for right now I am too busy with this other painting program.
