I’ve spent several hot days with Charles (Hecklinger) in an attempt to create a mock-up for a thing. One does not simply start with the Keystone system, right? So I enjoyed the process tremendously, but results are rather questionable.
So I’ve decided to paint digitally yet again. I sketched the idea down and experimented in three other attempts with position and details. Then I took the picture and uploaded it to my computer. I also took several reference pictures, containing some pillows, hand angles and red angry bird plushie, substituted for a focus point. It feels awkward but I’m getting used to it. It is also a lot quicker than searching through interwebs, which often ends up in admiring some actor/s and not paying attention to actual quests (Mads and Hugh are quite enthralling, you know).
Dlouho jsem zase nic analogového nenakreslila. Psala jsem a chodila po lesích. Zrovna teď už je docela letní počasí a já nemůžu nevzpomenout na 16 kilometrovou výpravu za mrznoucího větru do lesů, která se odehrála docela nedávno. Kolikrát to ani nestíhám sledovat. Oprášila jsem své nové tužky a skicáky a nakreslila jsem pár obrázků.
I was thinking… should I go English with this one? When it comes to specific topics I switch to foreign language for reasons unknown. Let’s try. So I’m going to describe the process behind the digital painting. It is everchanging challenge.
It has been over a year and a half since I created my two best friends and put them in the nineteenth century settings. Over the span of two months I kept rewriting my first three stories into English, when I felt like doing so. Enjoy, if you can.
