[Sketch] 'Raining Fire' by Technical0Difficulty
[Sketch] 'Raining Fire'
Oh my God, an upload??

How many years has it been? It's about time I got back on here!

So I finally saved up and got a new tablet, though it's not designed for drawing specifically. I downloaded the Autodesk Sketchbook app and decided to give it a shot, and I was satisfied enough that I thought, "Hey, why not become active on dA again?"

Well, here we have "Raining Fire," an OC-turned-PC for a homebrew Pathfinder campaign that my friend is currently hosting. She's a Lawful Neutral Druid of the Elemental Savant archetype and has been absolutely wonderful to play as! 

As far as the tablet and the sketch itself, I quickly noticed several limitations, issues, and work-arounds. My stylus isn't exactly compatible with the tablet itself, and is only responsive if I apply a liberal amount of force to the surface. With that, quick and short strokes are a nightmare to do, but half-way through the piece, I found that if I zoom in to ~1200% it is a lot easier to work with, so hey - whatever works right? :P 

The app only gives me three layers to work with and one static colour or transparent background. That works for me, seeing as I'll never be colouring so I should have plenty of working space for skeletal lines, hard-lines, and shading (someday). xD

I left the skeletal lines on 5% opacity for the upload - I feel that they complement the sketchy style. :P This will probably be my fallback to balance my pictures since I'll stray away from using colours for the most part or in large, complicated quantities xD Being colour-blind is a pain in the ass.

All things considered, I'm looking forward to uploading more and getting back into sketching! ^^ I am pleased with how this tablet handles drawing, and will use it as a stepping stone until I save up for a more art-specific tailored tablet, like an Intuos. 

It's good to be back. :)

Jack of all Trades. That accurately sums it up.
I'll probably edit this more in the future.
