Digital: Good news, sad news
This isn't finished, but I wanted to show you what I've got so far digitally! You like? Here's the thing... I love looking through a sketchbook and at drawings far more than looking at paintings. And I love drawing way more than painting. So... wondering if I can preserve the drawing/sketching/penciling/lining part of the work and also bring in bright vibrant color at the same time. Like I said this isn't finished... but this is certainly exciting, fun, semi-addicting... which WHO KNEW..., and I'm far happier with the results and process, and guess what... I've been dreaming about painting digitally at night. I'm all excited. I had no idea I'd enjoy it this much. My tablet still hasn't even come in the mail yet but I used the school tablets to make this.
Sad news is... I talked to my respectable advisor yesterday, and looks like switching to digital like this is most likely not an option. I might have cried a little in his office. Poor guy probably gets that a lot because I discovered an appreciated box of tissues at arm's length. I'm very bummed. But, I must do what I must do. At least I know something I didn't know before, that I can take with me to use in future work. So I guess it still kinda ends with good news again. But yeah... bummer.
