I'm taking Don Seegmiller's digital painting class, in the hopes that I might be able to break out of my characteristic way of painting and vary up my style a little bit. I tried doing this guy with completely new brushes, mainly Painter's loaded palette knife. I did this during class, and at BYU they've got Cintiq tablets hooked up to Macs, two things I'm not familiar with. Maybe it was just too many new factors, because I found myself unconsciously muscling the brush into the role I wanted it to fill, resulting in a technique that looks very much like just about everything else I do. Hrmph. Oh well, the semester's just started.
