Daily Paint 14 – Samus Aran

Samus Aran

Tonight was a test in controlling my dragon like anger (painting is usually a relaxing thing for me).. First I attempted to use the PC version of Autodesk Sketchbook Pro (I love the Android version with a unhealthy passion). I purchased a year subscription to the program for around $10 or so during Christmas. I been sketching with it and it’s been great for that.. But I attempted to paint with it tonight. It was a pure nightmare. First I could find a brush that had low occupancy that I could use to ‘blend’ colors by using the eyedrop tool (ALT). I use blending brushes sparingly as I like the control of using the eyedropper. There is no shortcut buttons to change the occupancy, Just this stupid circle thing. Even with the lowest setting, I still couldn’t get smooth transitions between colors. After a half hour, I said ‘screw it’ and imported the painting into Photoshop (It has awesome painting tools, it’s not just for photos) and desperately tried to get stuff done with the remaining half hour I had before I had to go to bed. My computer also crashed once due to my stupid driver.This is as far as I got. In the future I will paint Samus again and make a painting that does her justice. There are good art days and bad ones. 1 hour.
