I just received this art submission from J. Reinartz along with this note:
A while ago I was really into digital art. I’m painting in oil pastels at the moment. I did a series of abstracts in addition to some digital art portraits I find the ability to layer images the most satisfying part of digital. I mainly use illustrator and photoshop. I had an old tablet that I never could become one with. I’m sure the newer ones are much better. What do you think?
J, I love the work you sent here below. Many times when an artist picks up digital to any degree, it’s like starting over from scratch rather than an extension of their work.
I too love being able to work in layers to achieve certain effects. That was a totally new concept to me when I began working in the digital form.
As for the tablets. They are much better than they used to be. I had tried an old graphire before and found myself hating it. With the intuos3 they have really improved to the level that it’s worthwhile having one in your art arsenal.
If you have some work you’d like to share with us, submit it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org I’d love to post your work too.
