President Television Learns To Digitally Art
« on: August 09, 2015, 06:46:04 pm »
For the better part of my life, I've had an interest in learning how to make visual art. Due to various circumstances beyond my control, I never really got a chance to properly practice those skills, but recently I've had more free time on my hands, and enough money to buy a Wacom tablet. About a month ago, I picked up a free trial of Photoshop CS6, and although the trial expired today, I think I've developed my skills to the point of presentability. So I'm gonna show off. A lot of these are gonna be related in some way to tabletop games.


Jose Trejo, a character I wrote up for a homebrew RPG based on the high-camp manga JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.


Another player's characters from a Pathfinder game I'm in: The bookish, timid summoner Fenney and his eidolon Jess. Jess is the real character; as far as roleplaying goes Fenney's just along for the ride.

If I can get my hands on another art program, there'll be more to come. Criticism is welcomed.
My shit list: Stephen Harper, anarchists that complain about taxes instead of institutionalized torture, those people walking, anyone who lets a single aspect of themselves define their entire personality, salesmen that don't smoke pipes, Fredericton New Brunswick, bigots, philosophy majors, my nemesis, pirates that don't do anything, criminals without class, sociopaths, narcissists, furries, juggalos, foes.

These are great! Wacoms do indeed rule  :fnord:

There's a free alternative to photoshop, which will do everything you need it to do to keep on drawing: http://www.gimp.org/

There's also an inexpensive drawing program called Clip Studio Paint (previously called Manga Studio), which has all sorts of great bells and whistles for tablet illustration. It's what I use these days. http://www.clipstudio.net/en

Best wishes and keep up the great work!

Thanks, I'm installing GIMP as I speak. I should have some more work up later on this week.

Great drawings.

(and also I agree about G.I.M.P., it's a great program!)
