in which i regress/progress
October 21, 2009, 6:00 pm

i can't decide whether i'm moving forward or backward, but i like to hope it's more like circular. all things come and go in their own time, and right now i am going in the direction of traditional media. i was devoted only to digital media for the longest time, and now drawing on a tablet seems awkward and strange to me. i've been doing so many pen and brush and pencil drawings recently that it's the only thing that feels real. i threw myself into the creation of so many sketch cards that i believe i have fairly well mastered the use of the brush faster than most people do. sketch cards will do that to you. draw 200 drawings sometime and see if you don't get good at whatever medium you're using.

but even as my brushing gets better, i can't help but think about how much potential digital art has, and how i might be missing out on valuable growth in that department, by focusing solely on brush work.

... oh well. i can't exactly do sketch cards digitally, now can i?
