I usually try to avoid titles as dull as that one, but I think my creativity level for the day got sucked up by my drawing and didn't leave anything behind for clever word play. So it will just have to be sincere Becca tonight--what a drag, I know
So I finally decided to use my new wacom tablet (thank you again, Santa/hubby) to create a piece of art, and I'm pretty happy with the results.
Recently I've been sketching a lot of folk-ish primitive-y style cats, in a very different style than my prvious stuff, but I'd yet to transfer any of them to the computer and make a complete piece (my usual approach is to do the preliminary drawing with pen and paper, scan my original, and digitally colorize the piece). Tonight I skipped the scanning stage and just went for straight drawing into Photoshop via my tablet. I was particularly into the idea of using something so modern to create something that looked very rough and primitive--what do you all think?
Oh--and does anyone have a title idea for the piece? Titles aren't my strong suit :) (added later: thanks Mishkat for the inspiration--the title is now "Night roses")
So far I don't know how to use all the bells and whistles on my tablet, but I'm loving the ones I've figured out so far--like how the pressure sensitive tip will vary the width of my lines and how I can flip the pen around and use the "eraser" on the reverse tip if I draw something I don't like.
Anywho, that's probably enough sincere glee for one night--I don't want to make anyone feel queasy or anything :)
p.s.--I only have this listed as an 8x10 currently--but if you'd like a print version of this as a 5x7 or art card let me know; I'm happy to make it for you.
p.p.s.--Since a few people have asked: yes, a wacom tablet is a device with a digital pen and pad through which i can draw or write directly into programs like Photoshop.
