View Full Version : WDE April 5th: Pastures New

Still playing with Procreate on the iPad with the Apple Pencil. Lots of layers and masks but the only bit which is not freehand is the basic ellipse shape for the sweets. This was shaded and highlighted and then copied and pasted lots of times while the hue, saturation and brightness were altered.
A variation on the ship in a bottle theme. A miniature zebra with a sweet tooth.

That's a lot of work Harry, and very successful!
I can detect the 'copy/paste' on the sweets - a very good idea!
Thanks so much for this lovely combo!

Thanks for your positive comments people, much appreciated.
Maureen the copy and paste is a very useful trick but it is pretty obvious in the finished result.
There are a lot of techniques which could be described as cheating in digital work. I think the question is 'where do you draw the line?'.
In this respect professionals don't draw many lines at all as far as I can see. They seamlessly combine photographic and digital methods to get the desired result and clearly this is the future but then artists have always made use of whatever techniques were available, even back in Dürer's day.
PS I am aware that the smarties appear to be gravity free.....I intend to add some grounding shadows at some point.....

I was wondering if everyone else called them smarties, now I know. You are so clever with your digi tools. Love it.
