Arting for 365 Day 322: Undergrowth

Day 322, Digital Drawing

Day 322, Digital Drawing

Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

I’ve never really been into computer drawing. I like the feel of pen on paper, the pushing and pulling of paints. Using a stylus pen on a tablet does not feel smooth. That is not to say I wouldn’t enjoy it with a little practice. I just haven’t allowed myself the chance.

So when the boyfriend brought home his Microsoft Surface Pro and offered to let me draw on it, I had my reservations. But the pen moved smoothly over the screen. It was so much more natural than what I had used in the past and I sat for a long time drawing on the new device. I feel like it is an especially great tool for quick sketches, which is probably how I would most use it. For day 322, I thought I’d share with you a basic drawing I did, along with a second negative version I created while playing around in Photoshop. Enjoy!

  1. (unserious) sour grapes warning: I can do many things with a computer and now I discover that talented visual artists can, almost casually, pick up a computer and do this? Whatever will us poor wordy guys do? Do I have to pick up a pencil again?

    Meanwhile, I’ll just admire what you’ve done.

  2. Ha ha! You poor wordy guys continue to impress with quick wit and eloquence. Thanks so much for the comment!

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post them here.
