Reside Inside (digital drawing)

A quick draw to get in a creative mood for this new beginning of a year. I just picked what colors and themes that came natural. 30 minutes, and I’ve got something that makes me feel good, and helped me to step away from some anxiety I was feeling inside. (I’m sure that’s how that heart got in this thematically.) Pleased with the quick-line portrait work. Fighting back the inertia and moving…into motion! Go fingers and brain, go!

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.

Pink Maple – Coloring Digitally

Pink Maple – Coloring Digitally

I felt like I needed some bright colors in my life today. I went back through the daily sketch archives and found a portrait to experiment with. My thought being, “Why not add some color digitally? Let’s see what happens.” I am super encouraged by this short, fun coloring! Pink seemed the way to go, and so, go with it, I did!

The graphite drawing was taken from Day 16 of Daily Portrait Sketches.
Below is the newly-colored “Pink Maple”. What do think of her color infusion?

ABOUT THIS PICTURE

Digital art. This is a modification of a hand-drawn portrait I made months ago called SamanthaI’ve been submitting to a lot of literary magazines lately, and have been noting some fantastic cover art.

Looking back at my own work, and manipulating some colors in this (originally graphite) picture, I saw a lot of fun possibilities. Go ahead and make a simple sketch of your own, and take a picture of it. Drop it into Sketchbook Pro, Photoshop, or Illustrator — I bet you’ll come up with more artistic uniqueness that you ever thought!

I like the strong yellow. I like the loud colors. I like those color qualities against the softness of the female portrait. I enjoyed playing with this. Give your own artwork a digital-color try — and share them, of course!

Keep being great, lots of hugs,
Penney
