I have been a strictly digital artist for years now. All I need is photoshop and a Wacom tablet, right? It's served me quite well all these years, but there's just something so wonderful about just putting marks on real physical paper.
I've been itching to get back into drawing and sketching, and what better way to do it than with a nice pencil, in a nice sketchbook on a nice comfy couch?
This past weekend I bought a nice mechanical pencil, erasers, brush marker and watercolor set. one of my favorite subjects has been my Swords and Wizardry (a D&D clone) character, Horace. Now a level 2 (by accident!) Cleric, I tried to capture him here:
I have to say I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I think watercolors quite suit my cartooning style. It was fun and liberating to add layers of color for shading, etc. I plan to do many more watercolor pieces, considering how fun this one was to do!
