Hi all. I’ve had my V for just over a week now and so far it’s been a enjoyable experience. Particularly so as I’m coming to the device from a decrepit desktop with just 3Gb RAM.
I’ve been starting to play with the pen a bit, inadvertently taking my very first investigative steps into the world of digital art. I’ve never had any talent or training in art, and looking at my efforts I thought it might be a bit of light relief for people in a similar position to share their early attempts (whether it’s a 5 minute sketch or a 5 day masterpiece). I’d also love to see the first artworks on the V of any of the more talented folks out there to see what can be done.
So here is my effort, based on an attempt to draw from the first image that came to hand. I used the free program ‘Sketchbook’. I’ve no idea how this compares to other software. The ground was actually done with my finger as I’d put my pen down on the other side of the room and was too lazy to get up off the sofa.
In an odd way I’m actually kind of proud of the picture despite the fact that the tiger (yes, it is a tiger!) has the nose of a Proboscis Monkey and a hind limb that in no way resembles the leg it’s supposed to be! The tiger’s expression is not what I intended (it looks like it’s just remembered that it was supposed to pick its cubs up from school half an hour ago). Please feel free to share your own efforts!
