At it again.

So I got myself a cintiq and I’ve been practicing irregularly with it. Here’s the latest thing I did.

Honestly it feels a little too smooth and the drawing tools in PS feel a little… off. After wrestling with Procreate and the various Adobe apps on the iPad, I figured that this would be a treat, but it wasn’t really. I haven’t given up, but I’m wondering how to get used to it in a way that’s more pleasant than what I’ve been doing so far.

Not going anywhere yet.

I’m getting back into the swing of this.

We still here… kind of.

Are we back? Like back back?

I don’t know for sure, but I bought myself an iPad last year and I’ve been doing some sketching whilst I familiarize myself with it and work my way up to maybe painting something, so I figured it would be rude not to share.

Lack of a better word.

I’ve been really dragging ( tried to come up with a better word and failed, b/c it actually describes how I feel) lately, and it’s been showing.

This isn’t supposed to be work.”

Not a lot to say tonight, because I’m tired. I tried to come up with a good pun but I couldn’t. At least I did an interesting face:

Someone asked me if I’d ever done a mechanical or steampunk dragon. I have. But tonight I didn’t know what to draw, so I did this:

In a perfect world it would be a mechanical dragon wearing a top hat with goggles on it, but I didn’t have the time or the mental wherewithal to make that happen.

At one point today I started thinking that these line drawings were too simplistic. After really thinking about it, I decided that my first thought was wrong- they are very deliberate, and in fact in a majority of cases I don’t do any erasing- just plot lines and try to control my hands so that everything lines up.

The fact that it’s “easier” when I’m uninspired or tired doesn’t make it any less worthwhile, and I probably just need to be nicer to myself.
