Purple Iris (Digital)

Purple Iris (Digital)

I was looking through some photo albums a few days ago, and spotted this lovely picture of a dark purple wild iris.

Using the new Cintiq I was given, I decided to try to draw it. Even though there are artistic liberties in this picture, I like it!

The start of the image, working in the major color groups.

And the end of the image for now, with color groups filled in, as artistic and free as I believe is effective. You will note that the background is filled in with more visually interesting bright spots of color, too.

Cintiq + Reclining Iris (Drawing)

Cintiq + Reclining Iris (Drawing)

My awesome family bought me a Cintiq! It is the most loveliest, most beautiful, most responsive, happiness-generating piece of equipment I have ever had in my life. Cintiq is a drawing tool. It has a stylus and a pad, and easily enables drawing in digital format. So, instead of drawing with my Fujitsu, which I had a lot of fun with, but it was getting quite old… I now have this super device that uses the power of my existing laptop. That makes it possible for me to run Photoshop, the drawing program, and all kinds of demanding tasks at once, with no fuss. I’m really looking forward to getting more comfortable with this tool, and taking advantage of the power and freedom of movement.

This is the drawing I made today, “Reclining Iris.” To see at a higher resolution, click here.
