Painting - Suffering From Elation
A Survivor's Tale
So I'm right in the swing of this painting thing now. The idea of 'outlines' is receeding into the distant past. Slowly-built-up blobs and streaks and feathers of colour are taking the place of my older, linear efforts.

Listening to Crowded House and Icehouse (themed name thing not deliberate) while painting chills me out.

I just wish I could show you guys what I'm doing. D: By the time the game's released and I can do so, the work'll be months or years out of date and I won't WANT to show it around anymore... how frustrating!

Except replace "man" with "woman", and "painting" with "writing".

Woah! I had the same issue a few days ago!

Digital. I can't use realmedia. No 'undo'. :D

Couldn't you just paint something random and show us that? :)

(Digital painting, or the real stuff? I'd love to see what you could do in Painter.)

Digi painting, in Photoshop. I'm going to learn Painter this weekend, actually, a friend of mine is trading his Painter knowlege for my Illustrator knowlege. *g*

As to doing a painting for fun... I've been working on this particular one fulltime for a week now. I just don't have that kind of spare time. Plus, when I get home after a long day in front of the computer, the last thing I want to do is sit in front of the computer. So unless I get a sudden at-home painting urge that is too strong to resist (unlikely, with current cramped space and dodgy computer setup) I'm going to just have to wait 'til I'm allowed to show these images publically to add some digipainting to my portfolio...
