Scraggly Cat

While on the plane to San Francisco I had some time to get to know the Sketchbook Pro app a little better. While perusing the daily Fab.com sale listings, I came across a scraggly old cat illustration for sale. What with the great texture in the fur and background, I thought it would make for a decent first-run with the drawing app.

I’m much better with a digital pencil than I am with a digital paintbrush:

I think I can get the hang of this.

Puppets, via Sketchbook Pro

Painted myself into a corner, as it were, with the Inspire Pro app. I needed to do some detailed work on a puppet theater calendar cover I was working on, and while the lightheartedness of the painting was exactly what I wanted, I found myself needing more control on the details. Exported the Inspire version so I could import it into Sketchbook Pro, and had to learn on the fly. There are some pieces I wasn’t crazy about, but I think with some time under the hood this will be my drawing app of choice.
