Digital Painting

 As illustrators / designers / artists we tend to get stuck in a medium funk from time to time as we develop a style in a medium that comes naturally to us – leading to a portfolio of artwork that manages to look way too similar.


While I’m all for establishing a personal style, I personally like to mix it up every now and again to give myself a bit of range and to try see what I can come up with! So today I tried my hand at digital painting. While I have a long way to go in terms of mastering this medium (there are some amazingly talented people out there!!), I decided to share my rough progress with you!

Let me know what you think or share some tips in the comment section below 🙂
