It's always a little nerve-wracking for me the first time I try to draw on the computer after a complete hard-drive wipe and reinstall. Is the tablet calibrated properly this time? Did I lose all my program preferences? After a week, I finally took the plunge, and into a new program, too. It was time to see what SketchbookPro was all about.
I suppose now that Sarah no_mikoto has received them, I can post these without ruining the surprise:
Two Akikos, one based on historical Japanese prints, and one that's just meant for the pretties. I kinda like doing marker and pencil crayon together, I'd never done it seriously before. Also, can I just say I'm amazed that years after college, most of these markers are still nice and moist? 'Cause I am. Amazed.
I'm still trying to figure out what to do for June NaNoMangO. I really want to use it to get started on a couple of submissions. Thing is, I'm doubting the merit of my stories. Both of them are ones I've had inside my head for a very long time, so I'm not sure why. Usual creative self doubt, I suppose.
I solidified one script last night, but writing a script is one thing. I felt I needed to scribble up a couple of characters to see how I really feel about them. And y'know, I think I like 'em still. So much so that I can't see limiting their story to a mere handful of pages... But then, I did first create the story for a full-length animated feature storyboard project back in college. (Some of you may recognize these pieces: 123 )
Tweaked the placement of the castle so it's less smack-dab in the center--why do I always do that? Trying to make the colors a little less tropical, since Galay is supposed to have a more temperate climate. Next up, the grass and sand. Leaving the sea 'til last. Dreading it...
