I’m just letting Art Brain wander right now. Which means I let her work on whatever is the most appealing at any given moment. Earlier this year I got an iPad Pro and have been working in the app Procreate to see if I can warm to digital illustration. Which is something I greatly admire and have wished was part of my skill set for a long while.
I’ve finally reached a point where I feel like the stuff I’m making there is worth sharing. There’s been a lot of really horrible art making during the learning process and as strange as it sounds, I’ve enjoyed that part. There is an element of freedom in failure that I have come to appreciate.
One of the things that I like about Procreate is being able to easily change the colors of elements to create variants. It changes the vibe of stuff and I’ve started doing some color study illustrations. I love color so much, just want to submerge myself in the subject. Below are two color variations of a recent illustration I completed called “Crazy Plant Lady’s Heartbeat”. I know which one I’m partial to. The only difference between them is the background colors. Which do you like better and why?
