Long time no update. I’m quite busy with a big project so this time I’ll just post a character I drew last year. Kind of look like a sailor type of guy.
I got interested in testing Sketchbook Pro with a Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and I must say I liked it a lot. Very nice overall feeling when drawing. The only thing I noticed “again” is that the Samsung gets all the colors a bit off compared to what it looks like on the computer screen. I wonder why, now I have to find out if there’s a way to adjust the color tone on the Samsung so it’s closer to what I get when I look at it at the PC.
Happy New Year 2016
Happy New Year. Learnt a few things this year as well, maybe this year I’ll buy a tablet computer to draw on, so I can draw digitally directly on screen. The MS Surface Pro 4 looks promising. I consider Wacom to bee too pricey at least at the moment. We’ll see. The main thing is whatever tool you use it comes down to commitment in the end, and I know it would be easier to be more productive with a Surface Pro 4 but it doesn’t mean I will have more time to put into this hobby and that I will be more productive, so. I look at my traditional tablet and I think: “-I’m ok with that one too.”
I’ve had time and inspiration to play around with the open source animation application – Pencil 2D. The usual way I do it is that I just start drawing sketch after sketch not giving many minutes to decide wether I press delete or keep. This one passed the delete button, so I decided to give it some coloring and a final touch.
The Great Pink Pig Ride
These times of the year is usually busy for me, Therefore I don’t have that much time practicing my hobbies. This image was needed for an event that we arranged for a close relative. The image was drawn on the tablet computer i mentioned in earlier posts.
Full speed ahead
Because I just got one year older I hereby present my vision for the future. At some point getting older it gets tougher to move around so what would be better than trying out the next big thing: remote controlled slippers. 🙂
More painting with Krita
It’s been a wile since I have had time to look at Krita but I had this character which I drew with Pencil2D that I wanted to put some colors on so since Krita is more up to the task than Pencil2D I decided to take some time to learn using Krita again. This is my result, very basic coloring but as soon as I have time I’ll try to work some more with coloring and Krita there’s so much in Krita to explore and I have so much to learn about using colors.
Angry Pig with Pencil2D
I haven’t tried Pencil2D for some months so just now I had some extra time to kill but my inspiration wasn’t exactly what I wanted so I ended up with this angry pig. I can’t blame Pencil2D in any way. I still think it’s a great tool to draw with and to animate with the traditional way.
I don’t know why but with Pencil2D it’s like my Wacom tablet works even better than with other paint programs. Maybe it’s my imagination? No, really you should try it yourself, it’s just so fluent to paint with. I also noticed there is a new version in the works, that sounds good since the most current working version is amost a year old now. Let’s hope development speeds up because this progam has so much to give.
