Oh snap! I guess I had this post in my drafts for over a few months and never got around to publishing.
Anyway, one of my goals for 2019 was to dive fully into digital art. I got really jaded with painting and the gallery world in general. It’s also a little sad when you are surrounded by unfinished projects and unsold paintings. Going digital meant I could curtail some of the space that artwork took up and learn some new tricks.
My main explorations were with Adobe Sketch, Adobe Draw, then Adobe Fresco when it got released and then eventually hunkered down and learned Procreate.
Most of my focus over the past year was to see how much I could emulate my painting style but in digital form. I think I achieved this best when I was noodling around with Procreate.
I might make a point later in 2020 to dedicate in-depth posts on each of those apps and the pros and cons for making illustrations, concept art, and comics.
I mostly have focused on creating character illustrations for my comic, “The Grievers” on Webtoon. I’ve made creature designs as well, most I have posted about in the past.
Obviously this doesn’t include Clip Studio Paint, which I use mainly for the comic. Maybe 2020 will be the year I try to make some illustrations with that program.
For 2020 and beyond, I’d like to see what I can push with digital painting. Hopefully by this point next year, I will master these programs and show you all what I can do!
