Still loving the charcoal! Onto week three (no, it’s been four) with this media.
I’ve never painted in oils (beyond a the minimum requirements for graduation, which I think was one test painting in some mixed media class) – but compressed charcoal feels like the way I *think* oils should feel (if that makes sense). It’s all liquidy and smudgy. (and fun).
So, this weekend, I’m planning to try out the ancient art of oil painting! I don’t know what’s going on with my drawing here, it’s some kind of art-luddite anti-digital thing: but in a weird way, all this traditional drawing is making my photoshop work better at the same time. Wish I could show you what’s going on at work, but we’ll have to wait for the game to ship for that….
