Physical Painting Update 2
Maria progresses (:
Loving working with physical paint/brushes/canvas again, after a four year break. Strangely, it feels like I’ve not even been away… everyone I have ever talked to about the fact I do digital painting (everyone who has never done it) thinks that digital painting in Photoshop is some kind of trick/gimmick, where the software does everything for you, these are the same people who think Photoshop ‘magically’ does everything it does; they do not understand that painting in Photoshop is almost exactly like doing physical painting, especially when you use a Wacom and stylus, as I do. You still have to physically, by the use of your stylus on the tablet, blend the paint, even if it is digital paint, the reason Photoshop is so damned expensive is because it is amazing! Your hand gets tired, just like doing a real painting, only it’s more your arm that gets tired doing physical painting. Anyway, I think thats why I am not the least bit rusty, now. The only rusty aspect was my forgetting to clean my gear after my first few sessions… you don’t have to clean a stylus!
Both these photos are crap, but, you get the picture (:
