As many of you know, I am a long time artist who’s been out of practice for many many years. In order to get back on the old horse, brush up on my skills and do something I’ve always loved, I decided to buy a digital art tablet and start playing around with the old skills again.
So I bought the Huion KAMVAS GT-191 Drawing Tablet with HD Screen 8192 Pressure Sensitivity – 19.5 Inch display. I’ve used it a few times on my new Twitch channel streaming live while I draw. I also recently updated my iTunes library and am starting to collect some royalty free music that I can play while I’m streaming.
I use basic image searches for references to show me postures and how things look that I’m not familiar with. I took old photographs of gothic architecture and did a traced “blue line” image for the background. I plan to use it as her families funeral and mortuary building on Blackstone Memorial Park Cemetery. She also has a statuary there that is her “touchstone”. I’ve not decided yet whether I’ll draw those in too.
