I have always drawn, mainly mechanical things..cars , planes etc. Branched out into some curvier stuff a few years back,female body mainly and some random stuff. Now trying my hand at a bit of arty farty landscape with a tablet and MyPaint , seems like a cool proggie so far. I do not really find photoshop and the like very intuitive for freestyle drawing, maybe its just me
Anyway , i have been popping out a few different skies and i am liking that but i am struggling with oceans. Any tips for a digiowater newb. I find i always end up back in my old habit of drawing every single tiny shadow and curve. Doing it like that i will end up with something i am happy with ..but on a 4000*2000 size picture i am going to be here all bloody year
one way i attempted it was just a full light watercolorish backwash then fading it black from the top down then highlighted the wave tops , foam etc. Looked ok but..my 9 year old girls one looked far superior
One thing i was also going to look into was also getting a better tablet pen , the one i have (waco bamboo) is too thick and the buttons are in an annoying spot right where my fingers go and i find i am constantly bumping them.
soooo..any tips on sea painting would be handy lol.
