“Sister’s First Flight” digital painting is coming along…at
least, I feel the attempt at colors on it is taking some shape.
Here are two stages up to now.
I’m working at a fairly low resolution – 150dpi and an average
2000px by 1200px and keeping any details to a minimum. This
way my computer doesn’t bog down too much while blocking in
large areas of color. Also the strokes I use with the stylus remain
pretty responsive and smooth. BTW, I’m using a 15″ cintiq tablet.
If I were to be working at final print resolution, say 300 to 600dpi
my computer would likely freeze up or stutter as I make each
stroke. I’ll leave any fine details such as faces, lizard scales, hair,
gravel, foliage etc. until last when I can safely bump up the file
size and resolution.
Stay tuned. Oh, and Happy New Year!
