Digital Drawings

A friend of mine is lending me her Wacom tablet to play around with. I didn’t know it was going to have such a steep learning curve. It’s totally weird to work with. Which might come off as even stranger considering the digital art I’ve done in the past. All of that I did with a mouse though, and this is entirely different.

This is my first attempt at a sketch. As you can tell, I have no idea what I’m doing.

This was infuriatingly difficult, and took much longer than a sketch of this sort would have taken me to do with paper and pencil. It’s also extremely rough, I couldn’t get the lines to even out, and finally gave up before I threw something. I’m trying to not be frustrated with it.

  1. My art form is music. I see this post and I think about the difference between singing a song and picking up an instrument that I’ve never played before and trying to make it sound the same. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Give yourself time to learn the medium. You can’t be expected to be a master of everything immediately. Xx

    • Thank you. I appreciate the kind words. It’s helpful to get an outside thought like that, too. All I’ve been thinking is how long I’ve been drawing and how easy this style is normally for me, and how difficult this process was. But you’re right, I should go easier on myself and keep practicing.
