Drawing for Myself – Cindarr

Today’s warm-up sketch got a little involved, but I was grateful for the chance to practice some new techniques. I started out with a simple drawing of Cindarr from the Visionaries toy/cartoon series. I meant to color it with crayons, but then thought about that episode of the Comics Are Great! podcast I did with Brandon Dayton, who showed off some really neat digital painting techniques. So I used today’s warm-up sketch as an opportunity to try out the techniques for myself.

Now this is my first go at using those digital painting tricks Brandon showed me, so I’m not satisfied with this. But it was fun, and I learned a bit. I think I’m going to watch the video again before trying some more.
