So after weeks and weeks and weeks I’ve finally managed to sit down and have a bit of fun with Procreate… by no means back to my former self yet but thoroughly enjoying the time being creative.
Occasionally I like to have a play with digital painting in photoshop… I would confidently say I’m pretty rubbish but none the less I enjoy it and I thought I’d share a concept I was playing with a couple of weeks ago. It’s a little bit rough around the edges and I think it’s something I’ll revisit over this year. I’d really like to update my computer and tablet because I think it will ramp up my productivity a little more, hopefully I can look into that at some point.
It seems like I’m keeping my own promises and pushing on with my creative restart, I feel like I’ve built a very strong project for the year and I’m already feeling excited about what I’ll produce in that time.
The ability to sketch, doodle and polish my work while on the go has only been possible for me in recent months but I would fully attribute my successful concentration on access to apps such as adobe draw and adobe sketch. I am by nature a traditionalist with an interest in digitisation but this has stream lined my work flow. This latest illustration is based on a sketch from around 5 years ago, maybe more. I love pattern making… I love arts and crafts so I suppose these sketchs revolved around those ideas but are now certainly more focused on constructing a bold image.
