I’ve been working on a series of cat paintings using MyPaint and my little tablet. The process is getting faster and I’m growing in confidence with digital art generally. I want to try using the Gimp for some art too, but I have developed quite an addiction to MyPaint. It just doesn’t get in the way of what I want to do. I’ve tried to do things the same way I would with real paint and brushes and MyPaint is really nice for that. I think the MyPaint work will help me work in Gimp because I’m more savvy about brushing and using layers. The last time I tried using Gimp I didn’t have a clue where to start 😀
So, without further words – here are some pictures of the artwork I’ve been uploading. You can hop straight to my DeviantArt pages by clicking here 🙂
This is the first digital painting I did of a cat. I really didn’t think I’d manage to get the fur pattern right, but in the end I’m really happy with the result.
Here are the practice sketches I did in pencil before I started my paintings.
