Hey Guys, Happy Sunday!
-I think I will just dive right in today.
I am officially doing Digital Art Painting sessions twice a month now, moving from Charcoal on paper sessions to digitally painting on rendered line drawings. (See today's Video sample.)
The way these will work:
-I provide a pencil line-drawing of our session topic. (Today's Session was Queen Amidala from Star Wars; Phantom Menace, and is shown in today's video).
-I will share how I digitally paint in the image, using Photoshop with a Wacom pen and tablet.
-We'll paint on this drawing together, in real time (either on Google Meets or Zoom), over the course of several sessions, and using screen-sharing I'll work with you on your rendition while sharing my own efforts with you.
If you have Photoshop or a comparable digital illustration tool (Pro-Create seems to be popular these days), and a Digital Tablet with a pen to paint with, you will be set to join in!
-Most digital art programs (like Photoshop and Pro-Create) can be purchased with monthly subscription costs between $8 to $10/month.
-You can get set-up to paint with a digital pen and tablet for about $30-$40 (or more, if you want to get fancy).
Reach out if you are interested in joining in, and I can help you find a tablet and program that is best for you!
Next Session is coming up on Sunday, May 23rd @ 2:00 pm pacific time!
Please reach out if interested, and I would be happy to help you set up to paint, and please to give you a free session link to join in as a guest, to try out a session with me.
Thanks for stopping in, and as ever thank you for your support on my various projects and efforts here.
Have a great week ahead, and talk with you all soon!
