I wanted to create something a little simpler and spring-like. Glad I was successful with one of those goals at least. :)I also wanted to play around with different styles and ideas. Done almost entirely in Clip Studio Paint.
Done in Clip Studio Paint. Feeling a bit spring-y. Living that #finishednotperfect life 🙂
I’ve been trying to do more in Procreate. This was an idea that I came up with randomly while doing another piece and wanted to give it a go. Might upload the video process here later if there’s interest.
Birdhouse study from a Pinterest pin I of a photo I believe by Lori Jolly. #FinishedNotPerfect. Done in Procreate using brushes from Mike McCain and Frankentoon over a couple hours.
I came across a great photo of a cabin in the woods by Daniel Cristian over at Unsplash and decided to use it for a nature study. Done in Procreate over an hour and a half using brushes from Frankentoon (my favorite!) and Mike McCain. #FinishedNotPerfect
Maybe this is the start of something useful? 🙂 I’ve been trying to put my Skillshare subscription to good use- aka actually watching and implementing techniques from all the classes I have bookmarked. So if Skillshare Saturday (sharing classes I have found particularly useful) is something you are into please let me know! The class I want to share today is- Adobe Photoshop CC by Daniel Scott. (https://skl.sh/2RrnIsD– using this link will also give you 2 free months of Skillshare (and me a referral bonus-thanx!) if you don’t already have an account and/ if you want to buy the course outright it’s also available at Udemy here ) So about…

One of the things I noticed about Insecure was how beautifully lit everything was all of the time. It was great to find this video that showed how intentional that was by Ava Berkofsky (Insecure’s Director of Photography). These days experimenting with color, skin tones, and lighting is something I’m having a lot of fun doing and even though the video linked is mainly about photography/cinematography I got a lot out of it as an artist. Another person that does an exceptional job of lighting darker skin is Eric Wilkerson.
