I’ve been away again for quite a long time, but as you maybe noticed, I am away almost every summer. 🙂 The thing is that in summer I usually don’t spend so much time on the computer and usually draw more with “old-fashioned” pencils. 🙂 And this year we had so-called summer of the century as it was so hot and didn’t rain almost all. It would’ve been a sin to stay inside. In the end of the summer though, I made quite a lot of things digitally, but as they were for my sister, I don’t put them here.
But I share with you some of the pencil drawings I made. I also have quite a few unfinished pictures, so there will be more stuff in the coming days.
One morning I played with Inkscape tool mesh, which I hadn’t used before. I once tried, but I didn’t really understand it. But then I discovered this tutorial and decided to try it again by drawing an apple. I used the apple from this article, which I later found out to be a political one (Trump alert!). At first my apple looked like this:
Not exactly what I wanted it to look (I need to learn this mesh thing more), so I used my previous knowledge and improved it. I added light and shadows and hundred little dots. And I must admit I’m quite satisfied with the result:
Of course it doesn’t look exactly like the original. One my co-worker even said that mine looks like a rotten apple. 😀 😀 But as Inkscape is not the tool for digital painting, I think it’s quite fine. What do you think?
And thank you for visiting. I hope that you all have beautiful summer. Here in Estonia it has been really warm and sunny almost a month already. I wish it’s going to rain soon, because farmers and forests need it, but until then, I enjoy the beautiful weather. 🙂
Last year, in April, I posted an unfinished picture about the Spring as a young girl planting. I had a plan to finish it later, but I wasn’t sure how to do the background. Now, more than one year later, I finally finished it. I hope you like it. 🙂
In Estonia (and in Finland) the February 14 is not only the day for romantic lovers, but we also celebrate it as the Friend’s Day. As I am not too romantic person, I prefer the last meaning more. And as I think that your significant other should be also your friend, it gives (in my humble opinion) to the day even more meaning. 🙂
