I hate painting
I really do hate painting. Never got the hang of it, but did always appreciate it when it was a skill that other people had. One of these days, I'll figure out how to do these fancy painter effects and stuff with the computer, rather than just aimlessly splattering stuff on the page.
I tried grey washes on a strip I'm doing at the minute (left), but then I remembered how permanant mistakes can be with traditional drawing and painting methods, so I tried painting in front of the line drawings - rather than behind as I normally do - in photoshop (right). Softly softly in all things, so I just had a quick stab at a panel from aforesaid strip (which is probably the only panel thus far I don't hate), and I'm not sure. Seems a bit time-consuming, but the colour does look nice.
I'm going to have to go and actually learn how to paint with the computer now. Might be fun.
