So here's this weeks Illustration Friday. I just started doodling and this is what came about. I did start another one previously, which is here too, as I thought it was a pretty cool invention. Though I am yet to work out what either of these things actually do- but it's pre-tea & too early in the morning. Maybe you know what they do!?
I have been working flat out on some illustration jobs, using my new wacom drawing tablet and corel paint. What painty/drawy programs do other people use? I've just downloaded the trial version of paint, and so far I'm having fun with it so I might purchase it when the trial period is over. Although I love to play around and draw on the computer, I still think nothing beats the tangible nature of paint. I've been feeling like I want to get my oils out again.. it's like a calling. It may be a disaster though.. I get it everywhere, and am too used to the quick drying time of acrylics so I get impatient. I think I need to get them out though- even if just for fun. I went through a stage earlier this year painting weird scary pictures with a realistic feel. I don't know why, I guess I was inspired by similar works of this nature. I'm over that phase now though, and the paintings are gathering dust.
I see blogger has a new version or something. This is news to me.. I'm too scared to change over my account as I don't have time to fix up any bugs that may appear. Is it safe??
Link love: I've wanted to add Cheeky Beaks to my link list for a while now. She's an aussie designer, and I like reading her blog.
