Continuing on with wanting to challenge myself with things I'm not comfortable or familiar with I think i'm going to try my hand at drawing animals this week. "But Sarah" you say "It doesn't look like you're bad at animals." To you I say shhhhhh. Animals ARE hard for me. But I'm quite happy with how I progressed from the first one to the last.
And in related news. My boyfriend actually hooked me up with Painter 12 when I went to visit him last weekend. I'm still in the process of decoding the billions of brushes but I've pretty much found everything I need except a good outline brush. I'll probably have to create one but as you can see, my sketch brush is located and we have been getting to know each other quite well.
I also think it's fun to show what my sketches look like. Mind you these are a bit more detailed than I would usually do for a full colour drawing.
