Day 31, Thursday Dec 31 at 11pm

Painted in Clover Paint on the Cintiq Hybrid.

A Digital Painting Odyssey

The goal: To find a work flow that is comfortable for me and to help get in plenty of painting practice before June 2016. I will aim for 100 consecutive studies, as it seems like a easy to remember round number.

The Method:
To produce a study in about 30 minutes or more every day from screen grabs of movies .That is roughly my length of my train commute to work, that I have been using to practice and to produce some 2D art.

The Rub: To switch each day between different digital drawing tablets to compare the tools and workflow on each. I will be using Wacom Cintiq Hybrid running Android and Clover Paint, a Surface Pro 2 running Windows 10 with Clip Paint Studio, and a Wacom Cintiq Hybrid connected to a Macbook in display mode using Clip Paint Studio or Photoshop.

Here is a series of Images created to help illustrate a lesson series on Daniel, taught by our minister Shane Hughes at Campbell Church of Christ. On 3 separate Sunday mornings the images where created live during his 25 minute sermon, using a Cintiq Hybrid and Clover Paint. The base image composition was prepared in advance to ensure they would be basically complete within a 25-30 minute time frame.
