Giving these dudes all of the love. Randomly came across this and fell in love pretty quick. "Visualize" by Abiogenesis (Italy).
Sometimes a band produces a piece of art that has to be shared. I love everything about this video, the production, the band, and the vibe. Just lol-wow!
Man, I never update this fucker. I keep telling myself I'll kick off this blog workflow but I tell myself, "tomorrow".
Note-to-self: knock it off.
I was playing with the Apple TV + SketchBook + Wacom Intuos Tablet. Essentially I was painting on my TV in my living room and I sketched an eye-ball. Then I just copy/pasted it next to itself and then colored one part of the eye. Made for a dramatic expression in my sketch. I am absolutely loving Autodesk's SketchBook + Wacom combo. It's a cheap little home art kit. Not sure what I'll draw next but I plan on putting everything here.
Shout out to my uncle Don for teaching me the flint-of-the-eye trick back when I was in the 3rd grade!
I am always amazed at what can be done with digital painting and illustration these days. I do a lot of technical work at my 'day job' so I wanted to pick up a hobby that was on the other end of the spectrum. I'm always drawn back to comic books, sketching, and visual storytelling. Before I had the lexicon of the creative industry, I still loved these things. I just didn't know how they all worked.
Now with the power of YouTube, Twitter, BestBuy & a Saturday in July - I can dive deeper in to the digital art world.
I installed the free version of SketchBook from https://www.sketchbook.com/ and got doodling right away. After watching time-lapse digital paintings, I decided to stop watching and start doing. But I'm no painter and I've never doing anything but sketching with a Wacom.
So I sketched a few things! They are only sketches but it was a lot of fun to bust these out today. The first one was just the empty glass of my cocktail. The second one was the result of the first lesson of this sketching book I got (it's a horrible book which is why I went to YouTube) and the a last is just an X-Wing out of a concept artist magazine I've been digging on this last month.
Download SketchBook, grab a cheap Wacom Intuos from BestBuy or Amazon and get drawing. I'm having some much needed (and very relaxing) fun.
I love Rdio. It will forever love Rdio. And I love their Farewell note they made for everyone. Mine about sums my time up really well.
