Eskimo Girl

The majority of my attempts at sketching with my tablet over the past few years have always not turned out very well. However, after changing a couple of settings on my tablet a few days ago, I've discovered that I can actually semi-decently sketch with it. Painting has been easy enough so long as I had a scanned in image, but I'm excited that I can actually begin sketching directly into my computer without my drawing looking terrible!

Painting & Layout

Above is my layout, tonal, and final painting (done in gouache) for one of my painting assignments. The stones on the back wall were a last minute decision, which is why they aren't in the line drawing. Below is a layout I did weeks ago for my layout class. I decided to give a go at digitally painting it, mainly because digital painting is something I would like to improve on, and the only way for that to happen is to practice. :)

Photos & Sketches

I would probably consider Autumn to be my favorite season; I love when the leaves change color. Above are just two random photos I took on a walk a couple weeks ago. Below are a few sketches I did in downtown Oakville. I really need to start drawing from life more, so this is my start at that. This is essentially my first time going out and drawing buildings. I assume I will get better at it as I practice more. I much prefer doing these kinds of sketches as opposed to cafe sketches of people, which I suppose ties into how I really enjoy layout, but not so much character design.
