So in my off time this weekend, I've been experimenting with illustration. I love to draw and I've always wanted to play around with digital illustrators. Mainly because I'm kind of a messy artist in general and when I paint or draw, it's usually quite a production. This is especially true in my tiny apartment because I can't leave supplies laying around. One of my dreams is to have an art room where I can close my kitties out and make a mess without worrying about a security deposit or not being able to cook that night because I have painting supplies everywhere.
Here's a small sampling of some of the mini sketches that I like to do when I'm feeling creative but I don't feel like I have the time to drag out all of my supplies.I've shown these before on my blog but I don't have any sketches with me here.
And here is my first attempt at digital drawing. I used the ArtStudio app for iPad. It's nothing fancy but I enjoyed it. I tried to keep things pretty simple until I can maybe get some computer software for this kind of thing. Right now I'm just having fun with it.
What do you guys think? I know they aren't exactly on par with professionals but I had a blast experimenting and playing around with them.
