Donkeys, Day 14

Decided to pull out my drawing tablet* and play around with digital illustrating. I no longer have Photoshop, only PSE, now that I have a Mac, and despite being a stripped down version, PSE is different enough to what I'm used to that I feel like I've never used the program before. Not that I was a wiz with Photoshop, but I was semi-comfy.

Anyhow, this image felt very stale, and so I started playing with opacity and different brushes. Then it started popping a little more...and then too much. But by then, the "undo" button wasn't working any more. Oh well. Just sketches, Miq, these are just sketches.  :P

14 digital donkey experiment
"Fall Day Donkey," digital

* I have had this thing for years, and I've barely touched it. :-<  I don't know how to use it effectively. Another thing to add to my never-ending to-do list.

. Another thing to add to my never-ending to-do list. No! You don't need to. Let it go. You'll use it when you use it and discover its ins and outs when you get a chance and when you feel like it. Maybe you never will. It's okay. Meanwhile you're doing other things--even just watching the birds is a Thing. The universe is happy when you watch the birds.

I notice the crow in this one :-)

:D Thanks for the reminder that I don't HAVE to master this. It is just that it cost around $400, and ouch...expensive if all it is going to do is gather dust.

But yes, I'm going to work on "letting go."

It is not like it is going to go moldy or dry out. If, five years from now, you pick it up and master it--great! Everyone will be like, "Wow, look what she can do on that outdated technology! It's practically cave painting!" /joking JOKING, yo :-)

I like the layers, it looks like cut outs.

I also think the shadow effect makes it looks like cutouts. This donkey looks somewhat confused and bewildered, as if she can't decide which of the two trees to believe (she hears the voices of both), or what those big blue leaves are doing around her feet. She almost looks like she's afraid to take a step. Perhaps the crackling of the leaves hurts her ears.
