Okay, so this is really bad since there was no plan ahead of time and no composition and no real underlying talent, but it represents a start on finally learning to do some digital painting. So there’s that. Clearly I’m starting with basically no idea what I’m doing, but I have to admit to really enjoying this particular activity. So there’s also that. I’ve dabbled in digital painting a time or two before but this is the first time I’ve ever tried it in a larger format. The version you see here is reduced considerably. I used Gimp 2.8 on Linux Mint.
I also did some Blender modeling – an eyeball. I spent more time figuring out the best render settings than I did modeling the eyeball. Boy could I use a couple of GTX 580s about now.
