My first post! Yay!
I’ve admittedly had MyPaint for a while, but done nothing more then mucking about with it really. However a few weeks back I had to teach basic digital painting skills in Photoshop to students (its part of the curriculum I teach). Never done it before, but with some advice from a co-worker, I enjoyed it so much I had to do more.
Rather then Photoshop, I preferred MyPaint - mostly because of its infinite canvas, and also for the awesome “Smudge and Paint” brush! Here is my first-ever digital painting - Sir Clive Sinclair. I’ll include the others as I go…
For the first few I painted, I bought in the photo for reference without thinking about the resolution - hence I noted how small these were after I saved them! Doh!
