Falling down the rabbit hole πŸ‡

Here’s my first foray into proper digital art.

I’ve done some little sketches on my phone before but this is my first ever drawing with an iPad πŸ€“

The subject of Alice having fallen down the hole into a new Wonderland seemed like a good place to start.

It was supposed to be in the style of the original etchings in the book.

I’m not that used to how the iPad draws, drawing on glass is an unusual experience.

It looks like there’s a ton of fancy tools which for the most part look like they could create a masterpiece without your involvement.

That doesn’t interest me too much, I’ll try not to get too distracted with those. But it could be fun to have a play with some virtual oil paint having never touched the real stuff 😁

    Dabbing your toe into the digital world, ehh. What did you think of the experience?
    Just this week I received an iPad and Apple Pencil from my employer. I was thinking of trying a digital sketch myself.

      It’s going to open up some new artistic opportunities for sure.

      I know I’ve seen a few traditional artists move over to digital completely, that’ll never be me though – it can’t beat the experience of breathing life onto a bit of paper with graphite or paint.

      If you’ve got the pencil as well then it’s absolutely compulsory you get sketching on it!! I look forward to how you get on with it, we can compare notes as we’re starting out πŸ‘πŸ»

      First app to download, Autodesk Sketchbook – the pencil ‘brush’ is excellent. Better than Procreate’s standard one it feels like. However I can see that I’ll be working more in Procreate generally, if I’m doing pencil then I’d rather use the real thing, maybe… πŸ€”
