I have a girlfriend thats about to give birth within 2 weeks and a home to decorate, so to the 3 regular followers of this blog, I apologise. As you can guess, I've had about as much spare time as an Austrian electrician. (is that too far?)
Back to the point, I said in my last blog post that I was going to give up the digital stuff for a bit. As it goes, all good in theory, but not so in reality. Truth is, my turnout isn't so hot without being attached to a Wacom tablet.
Over at the National Caricature Network , Bearded Belgian caricature guru, and all round nice guy, Jan Opdebeeck runs a monthly contest. Last month's subject was Matt Damon and the only rule is, that there is no digital input. "Great" I think. I'll fire in a reasonable entry... WRONG! For starters I posted a pencil sketch which I won't show here as it's as no more fun to look at as Vanessa Feltz in a 2 piece string bikini.
I scanned in the pencil sketch and after a couple of hours I came up with this digi painting done in PainterX
"not too bad" I think, " I can paint that no probs"
Ok, I admit, not so good.... yet!
