I finally got my Wacom tablet working on Windows 7 again, so I was able to draw in Toon Boom once more. I drew a lot of practice circles and then filled one of them with this. Meh.
I’m going to bed early tonight, so here are some snowmen. I’m obviously still trying to improve my digital drawing skills. I actually drew the blue one first with a two-pixel pencil setting, then the black one with a one-pixel setting. I also tried a trick on the black one where I zoomed out to draw the thumbnail, then zoomed in to finish it. That approach seemed fruitful and I intend to explore it further.
I’m making a concerted effort to get better at drawing directly into Toon Boom Animate Pro.
For some reason, by late Sunday afternoon I just completely run out of steam. I’m ready to eat chicken in a basket and watch The Wonderful World of Disney now.
Doing what I call “pulling shapes” in Inkscape, just to see what I can come up with. I sort of think of it as a kind of 2D sculpting. For some reason, I find it relaxing.
Edit: Ha! I just noticed that the last three posts (including this one) were all published on the sixth of the month. I’m nothing if not regular. 🙂
