Little paintings

Started to paint recently. Been hoping to do a picture book about my cats, and I feel that it would look better with traditional. Or, at least, I figure doing it with real paint will help establish the look if I eventually choose to do it digitally.

I am a bad painter, so hopefully these will get better with time and practice.

I tested it from the perspective of a digital artist, to see if it would be a suitable tool to use for digital art work. I tested it with Manga Studio, Photoshop CC and Painter 13 (albeit briefly). Please note this is not a subjective review meant for art friends; if you are looking for a technical review please look on another site. Continue Reading…
