Digital pastels? Please explain...
This might be long? I am not sure what direction I want to go in with my graphics design degree, I lean towards Photography because I studied Commercial Photography in the past, but I was very old school when I started back to college 3 years ago. ( I mean I can't believe how computerized everything is!)
I took a new class the dean was introducing, it is digital painting, it is using the software Corel Painter X and a wacom tablet (which is like using a pen or paint brush or pencil instead of a mouse so you have so much control, also the tablet has pressure points unlike a mouse and so you can create the effect of strength or force of your tool ie brush and such) Then you have unlimited amount of combonations of mediums, such as watercolor, oils, pastels, chalk, marker, you can control your brush size, style even down to choosing how many bristles you want on your brush and how long! It is pretty crazy!! I loved this software. One of the cool things is you can do here what you can't do in traditional art forms which is mix mediums, such as Chalk and watercolor.
I have some websites for art galleries of artists that create images this way, you would never know it wasn't created in a traditional manner.
Ok that is the long of the short of it,
trying to post another image, but i can't get it small enough? still working on it
