I haven't painted in, well, over a year. Last night, while waiting for my completed video to compile, I took up the brushes and painted for about 15 minutes.
It was awful. Dreadful, even.
So tonight I gave it another whack. Better...
...but I have a few more practice rounds to go before I'll be back in shape for it.
There's a really critical difference between drawing and painting.
When drawing, the foreground objects need to be drawn first. Then drawing the other objects behind them gives the artwork fullness and depth.
When painting, the background is painted first, to give the painting fullness and depth.
I painted a few things before I should have, which is part of my problem.
Now, back to cartooning...
