Revisiting drawing basics via Mark Kistler "You Can Draw in 30 Days".
Doing lessons on paper and in Krita w/Intuos tablet. Krita skills — well — I'll get there.
Lesson 1: Sphere
Including Krita in my drawing practice because at some point I need it for larger art pieces. Neither my iPad nor my Note are quite up to that task.
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 2: Overlapping Spheres
Flailing for ways to make my circles look like circles in Krita. Also writing. Graphics tablets are hard on the brain.
The paper version of today's sketch was twenty minutes while drinking first coffee.
The Krita version is at about an hour now and a long ways to go. Good news, though: I'm learnding!
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 3: Advanced Spheres
Seeing how I'd use Krita in real workflow, rather than as primary sketch tool. Making that an explicit goal for future practice.
Kistler 30 days, Level 3 Bonus Challenge.
Shifting to more like a real workflow: sketch, scan, finish in Krita. Finishing will be tonight.
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 5: Hollow Cube
Used pen and color pencil to polish today's sketch.
Delete & re-draft did some funkiness (compressing a compressed image maybe?), re-uploading original image so I can compare & contrast. Sorry for thread noise, but that's the joy of a process dump thread.
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 9: The Rose.
Kind of rushed through it. Should maybe eat breakfast?
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 10: The Cylinder.
Had loads of fun adding extras today.
Started a fresh thread for this so the toot -> tweet pipeline started working again.
You'd make for a great monster manual illustrator
@Bronco That would be awesome.
Going through these lesson books so I can get used to the idea of assigned work & commissions, rather than whatever pops up in my head.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
