Orchids (black-and-white digital sketch)

After spending the last two weeks getting my Fujitsu Lifebook outfitted with new drivers, hard drives, and lots of exciting new drawing applications, I dived into my first real attempt at digital artwork.




Digital print. This orchid was drawn from a quick reference photograph I found online. I spent about twenty minutes on it. Using the free version of Sketchbook, I made a quick outline layer of the petals, and then made a second layer filling in the details of the center of the flowers. Next, I added the dotted print. I am excited to work with this image more. The reference photo this was taken from has white petals with decorative blots of dark purple. In the coming days when I experiment, I will post as close to the original reference coloring as I can achieve.
