Moody

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.

  6. I love the colors. I guess it's good to learn new methods for painting, but don't lose the old ones... because obviously they're nice too.

  7. I'm impressed you're taking classes on this stuff even though you're stupendous at it. I guess it just goes to show that we can always improve. (Although I'm not sure how you can get better than you already are...I'll have to think on that one.)

    Btw, I heard they're cancelling that class! Is it true? Do you need more people anymore?
