October Digital Art: Blue Horse 01

It’s a beautifully sunny spring day in Melbourne, Australia today. I am looking forward to November and starting my fourth NaNoWriMo, but in the meantime I am trying to stock up my RedBubble store!

After several false starts this morning, I managed to draw a blue horse using Medi Bang Paint and my Wacom Intuos tablet.

At the time of publishing this post, I have made this image available for sale on a variety of RedBubble products including clothing, phone and laptop covers, pencil cases, notebooks, bed linen and art prints. See flokot.redbubble.com for more details.

October 2016 Art

I didn’t manage to catch the Inktober train this year but I have been drawing regularly prior to NaNoWriMo. I want to get as much drawing out of my system as I can, before I disappear into the realm of words for a whole month.

Here are some of today’s efforts so far!

A Velociraptor sticker design.

I also finally got around to making a header picture to emblazon the top of my RedBubble portfolio. After several false starts, I settle for a pink, purple and blue unicorn galloping through space. I think that this, more than anything else that I attempted, best summarises the type of art I have in my portfolio!

New Stickers

I’ve been plugging away (slowly) at trying to get the hang of digital art. At this stage I am using MediBang Paint Pro – if I continue to progress I plan to upgrade to one of the more professional art programmes, but that said MediBang Paint is proving to be a wonderful learning tool. I have a Wacom Intuos tablet that is absolutely fantastic.
