Trying out some Palette Knives....



I ended up substituting a friends class today - and it gave me a chance to demo some palette knives. Still trying to get back into the digital painting groove/feel/thingy...whatever. Anyways, I built a few palette knives, a variation on one that another friend showed me. The cool thing about these is that feels a bit more like how I draw by hand - holding the pencil at the side. I hate how no matter what stylus you use it ALWAYS ends up feeling like drawing with a mechanical pencil.

It was fun just to got straight at it in both cases - Photoshop has felt a lot easier in the last year, especially after getting a new laptop. Now if only the painting was easier....damn.
