A Sweet Shop is definitely pleasant. This one, "Mix". is triply
pleasant. It has many many kinds of sweets, it's just down the street a
couple of blocks from our motel in Ashland, Oregon, and it has picnic
tables out front perfect for spooning couples, children licking ice
cream, and nascent digital sketchers with their tablets.
The digital sketching process is becoming a bit easier. I am getting a
feel for various tools in the digital toolbox. I am starting to
understand how digital images must differ from oil painted images. And I
feel freer about what I use and can do.
Galaxy Note, S-Pen and ArtFlow, Art Rage, Wacom, and laptop, finished
off in Photoshop with Wacom. The last is perhaps not necessary but I'm
so familiar with the tools in PS, that it's easier to tweak with them
than with the ArtFlow and ArtRage. Someday I will break the dependence
I decided that what would please me would be to start with a fairly simple drawing of a beetle, then experiment with it, using some of the effects available in the Sketch Club app. I really liked seeing the color variations that I got.
