    Thank you.

    I got Corel Painter, the full version, and a lower end tablet.  It helps having a background in art. The program designers designed it all to act very close to life. But I’ve been brought to near tears by the technical side of it.


    @ncstokes

    Thanks! I’m hoping to post everyday. I made up my own Inktober challenge.

    @ncstokes, Yeah, I think I heard about it late last year too. Happy to have you along! Have you gotten started yet?


    @deeprun
    , I don’t think I’ve heard of that program before. It sounds pretty nice, though!

    @chalice Thank you!! And I thought of that, too.


    @ncstokes
    Thanks, it took a lot of brainstorming! 😉


    @deeprun
    Ha! I’ve always thought digital was intimidating. But ink still scares me a little too, which is why I tend to use watercolor most of the time. 🙂

    Day 2:

    I kind of made a mess of this one…but oh well.

    I actually think it’s a great piece, especially the textures.  Vivid difference between the curtain, smoke, and windowpane.  Reminds me of something out of a Dicken’s book.

    Watercolor is still probably my favorite.  Even the “oops” moments can turn out amazing.  It’s always made a lot of sense to me.

    And with digital… I’ve spent many hours staring at the screen.  It’s very intimidating.  Thank goodness for YouTube tutorials.  But if you can do watercolor like that, you absolutely have the skills to cross over.


    @chalice

    Corel Painter is the main competitor to Adobe Photoshop.  It has more outright painting features than Photoshop. Disadvantages are that it’s not as easy to draw shapes or manipulate text.  But they have a feature where you mix paint and it behaves uncannily like real life.  Except nothing dries out. Nor can you sit on your palette accidentally (true story).  So, yes, I could talk about art all day.

    @deeprun That last one makes me smile. That dragon looks like a great pet.


    @chalice
    Yep, the insanity has begun! I wasn’t going to do any today, but I have an exciting idea for the prompt “bait” I desperately want to try.

    @deeprun, Oh, I didn’t know that. Is it free? I use GIMP for digital art, and it’s pretty easy to use once you get used to it. (Except the text tool is kind of wonky. :P) Haha, yeah, I could probably talk about art all day too. 😀

    @ncstokes, Insanity indeed! XD I can’t wait to see what you create. I had a hard time coming up with an idea for today, but I think I finally have something I like. We’ll see how it turns out. 😛

    Thank you! I’ve really been enjoying this. I’ve been stuck on the first part of the middle of my wip, so I decided to use the characters for Inktober.


    @chalice

    It’s not a cheap program but what I did was buy last year’s version.  You save a lot that way and don’t miss out on anything.  It is still an investment. I’ve heard of Gimp but never tried it.  Will you post any of your work for Inktober?

    @deeprun Thank you! Yes, watercolor is very forgiving.

    And that means a lot, since I’ve always been interested in digital. Thanks for the encouragement!

    Also, I really liked your entry today. (Coincidentally, it looks a bit like mine!) The shading, and depth in your pieces are really well done.
