Day 1 of RIME Challenge by charcoalfeather Day 1 of RIME Challenge by charcoalfeather
Joined this challenge a bit late, but decided to try something a bit more challenging to take a break from my bar exam studying by trying digital art again! It's really been some time since I've done anything digital. Remember back in 2015, I was doing nearly all-digital works? Now my tablet is only working well with my Windows and I'm too lazy to install my tablet driver on my Mac, and I think I'm more comfortable working with traditional these days because it's generally faster and more convenient for me.

I've never tried using Krita for making any finished pieces, so this is a milestone, I suppose. In the past, I usually stuck to Photoshop (esp since Photoshop provided so many free brushes I could download to texturize cloth, rocks, etc.).

Throwback to my digital pieces for my new watchers who didn't know about them (I had a LOT more free time back in 2014-2015, let's just say that):

The line art is provided by the awesome Ry-Spirit

Media: Krita, using only the pen and watercolour tools. </s>

Thank you! :hug: Your support means a lot to me. I might actually make a booklet/calendar of my illustrations later this year and see how many people are interested in it.

Thanks so much! Definitely. I actually thought of printing the lineart out and doing the colours traditionally, but then I was like, why not try digital again? I was just afraid it'd strain my eyes since sometimes, digital can take longer.

Thank you! This turned out better than I expected, since I haven't used digital media for quite some time.

I guess it's like riding a bike! :giggle: But I know what you mean. I always feel nervous when I let too much time pass without practicing a skill I care about.
