So for that last days I have been working on my digital skills. And despite all the advantages of being able to go back and redo things infinitely it is still quite tough going from traditional to digital. It’s quite frustrating. But I eventually came to a great discovery after learning that I can use my traditional drawings and color them digitally. I have had the idea of doing this for quite a couple of years but I never really learned how to do it, till now. Turns out it was actually quite a simple thing to do. I just had to create a new layer and make the actual scanned drawing into a layer and then place it on top of the new layer and also change the drawing layer from “Normal” to “Multiply” and I can keep all my outlines and even the shadings intact. And that is exactly what I dreamed of being able to do. For now I will work on an old drawing from 2006.
I’ll keep you guys posted on this. But I will say that this is a dream come true. I can now do digital art, but I will also be able to use my traditional skills as well. This will make the transition much easier and now I have to only focus on coloring.
Things are looking good.
Hasta la proxima,
