digital life

Hi again, everyone! Moving and other things have kept me from doing much lately, but here I am.

After walking through a bookstore today, I got quite the urge to keep working harder since I hope to someday have my stuff there, too! For my birthday, my husband got me a Wacom tablet, so I've been fiddling around with it for the last few days. Below are two images. They are both from a sketch in Cinnamon's Story - the first is the one I worked on yesterday and today (painted digitally) and the second is the one I did with real watercolors. I didn't ink over the digital copy like in the bottom, but for simplicity I kept the same color scheme so I could focus more on the new media. It's quite the process trying to figure out digitally how to do things I do manually, but it is fun.
