Today I went electric at the open model session at the IAC. That is to say that I hauled in my laptop and a newly acquired used fairly old, but still serviceable (after I paid to have WACOM fix it) Cintiq to try some digital drawing/painting during the 3 hour session.
The five 2 minute warm-up poses.
A 15 minute pose, these are all done using Painter X (I tried Painter 11 with the software patch but it crashed before the poses ever started so I went back to the workhorse version 10).
25 minute pose. Using the oil paint brush and the blender brush.
Another 25 minute pose, same brushes.
A 20 minute pose, this time using the conte crayon brush and blender (I like the blender, it’s like finger painting without the mess!).
I had one more but I fell prey to the old overwriting plague. Lost my train of thought and just hit SAVE when I should have used SAVE AS and renamed it.
And of course me being me, for the last attempt I did a quick caricature of one of the artists across the room.
