Recently I did a piece for a 1980s themed challenge. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but I knew that I wanted to do a character in 3/4 view because that’s something I’ve been working on.
I had a lot of fun doing it. My sketching skills aren’t great digitally yet so I sketched it out on paper, photographed it and then traced the line art digitally. I used tools for texture, different brushes, different shading techniques, included lots of detail. All things that were beyond me a few months ago.
For comparison, here is the first piece I did on this tablet back on November 10th 2019.
I still draw my monsters, but they’re looking a lot less messy when done digitally too.
But how drastic is this difference? I’m super proud 🙂
