illustration is art

Nearing Completion

Damn, I’m loving this! I am using the ‘soft wet acrylic’ brush for this, but to me the result looks more like a drawing, but, hey, who cares!?, it’s looking fabulous! I will almost certainly buy this software.

I watched Blade Runner last night, I’ve lost count of how often I’ve seen it, it’s one of my favorite movies. I’ve been listening to Blade Runner by Vangelis on constant rotation for hours, so I’m really in a smoke-filled, fabulous filtered light and strange, sad future sort of mood. I realised last night that the time setting for Blade Runner is seven years from now! I watched Blade Runner at the movies when it first came out in 1982, it was a seminal event for me, it seemed like such a plausible future yet, like all the plausible SF futures, it just has not happened… advanced robotics, off-world colonies, flying cars… will those things ever happen? I’m beginning to suspect not.

  1. Blade Runner is a big favourite of mine too! You are doing great things with Corel Painter, I think I might get a trial version.

    • Thanks! I highly recommend the free trial, it’s such a clever advertising ploy, it makes you realise that you ABSOLUTELY MUST BUY IT!
