I took a fairly hefty break whilst completing my degree, so there was a period of inactivity. Now that things are slightly less hectic, I'm aiming on updating with /something/ at least once a fortnight, aiming for once a week.
I used to do a fair bit of digital art a couple of years ago, as well as... uh, 'poetry', but then I sort of lost motivation and stopped for a couple of years. For reference, here's my old deviant art: http://rogueblade.deviantart.com/
, and as you can see, my attempts at drawing were, well, awful
Drawing's always been something I've wanted to get good at. I really enjoy drawing, but I've never had the dedication/motivation to do so; I loved using a cheap graphics tablet I used to have, but - because it was cheap - it broke after a very short period of use. However, now I've got a wacom bamboo pen, and I'm determined to make it through to producing some decent art; I also sketch on paper of course, but for lack of a scanner, I won't really be able to show you that side of things
So what I'm going to do is do at least 10mins - 30mins of sketching and practising a day. At the end of each week, I'll do a larger piece of work that tries to involve things I've learnt/refined over the past week. Then I'll pop on here and post a selection of stuff and the larger piece. It's pretty ambitious, but let's see how it goes! This stuff is the result of three days, just to show where I'm at right now: it's all going on my NEW deviant art: http://chidona.deviantart.com/
Main work: Largely messing around with tablet and GIMP, getting used to brushes, palettes, pressure sensitivity, layers etc. Tried to make head and features in correct proportion, need more study on the skull and lumps and bumps of the face, especially the cheek.
