For the four drawings above, I was filled with the need to draw, and experimented with doing so digitally. The first was done in TabletDraw, the second and third in SketchBookExpress, and the fourth in Blender, cleaned up later (background grid removed). All were done on the evening of July 16 with my Intuos3 Wacom tablet. I was frustrated with the lag in Tablet draw, and the lacking pen qualities in SketchBookExpress. I am a very rapid sketcher, and love writing and drawing on paper with my Noodler’s fountain pen. But I also love the way that the computer screen can be a blank canvas of variable dimension. None of these drawings used reference images of any kind.
