Studying Again

Painting’s pretty great. Especially the digital kind, with that ‘UNDO’ button. But I never properly learned how, so I’ve gone back to CGMA and signed up for their Digital Painting course. I’m 3 weeks in, and the homework’s been interesting (and frustrating at times): Above is a textures exercise. The idea is to find photos […]

Granted, I’d been scribbling pencil and crayon on the walls since I was tiny, so maybe their ‘permission’ was more like surrender. Either way, when I was 15 I started painting lions, dragons and swashbuckling scenes on my bedroom walls. When […]
