Digital Image, Vivien Blackburn

I've been playing with my graphics tablet and and colour and having fun :>)

Marks, colours, overlays ...... It isn't painted in a traditional way but put together from lots of elements. Don't ask how! I can't remember all the steps and always go too fast to remember to write down what I've done. Someday I'll get organised and do a step by step. Layers, dodge and burn, erase, clone, brightness and contrast, drawing with the wacom ........

I love the richness of colour on the monitor.

The colors are rich on my monitor, too, Vivien. Lovely glowing in places.

This is amazing. Did you just use the program that came with the tablet?

Lovely!

Now I must say thats very encouraging, as I can't get to grips with my graphics tablet at all in the weeks since Xmas (gift, cheers Santa!) - at least I know it's all possible now! :-D

thanks :>)

I used Photoshop, Harmony (the mr doob programme online that I've used here before) and Corel Painter Essentials - and lots of playing!

Did you buy and nibs or attachements for you pen or just use the one that came with it? Such gorgeous work.

vivien said...

just the one that came with it - I'm not sure if you can buy different ones for the Wacom Bamboo - I'll have to re-read the book

Book? Title. :)) I saw different nibs on Amazon.com. I think they were for the bamboo tablet.
