Digital drawing - Bald ealge

The animal and wildlife forum concentrates on drawings of all animals, from domestic pets to wildlife - anything dressed in fur, feathers or scales. The emphasis is on drawing but paintings are also acceptable.

Digital drawing - Bald ealge

Postby Laurene » Mon Oct 09, 2017 9:45 pm

If posting a digital drawing isn't appropriate for the forum Mike, please let me know and I'll remove it.

I haven't been drawing lately because of an annoying eye problem that makes it difficult to focus and it's just too frustrating most days. It's slowly improving but I thought I'd try my hand at digital drawing in the meantime because I can zoom in on the screen as much as I need to. I drew this in Paintshop Pro (similar to Photoshop) using a Wacom tablet. It's a completely different experience of course, but it turns out it's lots of fun to experiment. It took about 5 hours but I image someone who know what they're doing could finish something like this much more quickly.

This is looking very good so far Laurene. I had a go at digital painting using a Wacom tablet and Photoshop some years ago now but found it very time consuming although I must say I really enjoyed it.
Sorry to hear you have been having eye problems, I hope it clears up quickly for you.

Nice! Love it!, I also love Digital Art and have been playing around with it on and off for a very long time (worked in computers all my career).

Keep at it Laurene! Good Stuff!

Thanks Bev. I agree it's a very different experience compared to traditional drawing but it is a lot of fun. I'm not sure if I'm willing to put in the time to really learn how to do this well though. I'm just enjoying it for now. Thanks for asking about my vision too. It's slowly improving so I think it may just be a question of being patient.

Thanks Kenny. I remember back on AP that you were one of the first people I knew who was drawing digitally. Do you use a specific software like Corel Painter or Procreate?

I use Corel painter...which I began using several companies earlier and have upgraded many times. Many programs are very good for digital these days....
