Creating those eyes

My latest creative project is the Wacom tablet that can be used for digital drawings or paintings 😊. It sounded fun before I bought it and it turns out that it really is, there is something very relaxing about drawing. I thought it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to share my work in progress.

Well … let’s start with a purple canvas it seems (not entirely my favorite color, but white would just be too boring …)

The “grand” purple canvas 😉
Sticking with the purple …

Wacom has a nice feature that duplicates what you draw/paint on the left side if your drawing on the right side. Very helpful or this would not have been symmetrical for sure… 😉 In the end I should probably try to make it less symmetrical, but for this stage it works I think.

Even more fun is I guess that you can throw a bit of “magic” into it with a “glowing” brush 😊

Trying to make the eyes look like they’re “alive” is the hardest part. Apparently according to helpful tutorials at Wacom it is all about thinking about light and shadows. I have at least tried to get some life into those eyes.

Need some eyelashes too…

So this is how far I have gotten with creating the eyes. I just thought it might be fun to share as I like to see other people’s posts about drawings/paintings that are evolving, and I hope to show you this one as it hopefully becomes a face. Fingers crossed 😊

    I’ve heard good things about Wacom from many people. I recently upgraded my iPad to one with an Apple Pencil. Haven’t tried sketching yet but great for handwriting poetry and marking up sheet music! Have fun, liking these sketches, the eyes follow you!

      Thank you 🙂 It is a lot of fun, you should try sketching as well. Handwriting poetry sounds like s great idea, maybe I’ll try it 🙂👍
