Last night I was getting burned out with another project I’ve been working on for a while, so I took a break to play around with Painter 11. After realizing I really have to get over this block of doing things digitally (namely painting) and not feeling like a real artist, I had to just play.
The result? Realizing how much I REALLY enjoy this. It’s much faster for me, and therefore my creative side feels fulfilled. So I started this quick painting up of Mirian and then finished up tonight while listening to the 2nd class for in the Fish Bowl. After playing around with painter, I just can’t help but jump into Photoshop and play with textured paper and backgrounds, etc. Of course I can’t seem to sign my name for the life of me with this tablet, so we resorted to typing the signature and date. Tacky? Oh well, I sort of like it. It’s sort of like me admitting… this is all digital. No real paint here. And who cares what anyone else thinks.
