Comments: I did this one in Adobe Illustrator with proprietary tools
It's a portrait of a dog from RGD (Redditgetsdrawn) in which people post references and ask us to draw them.
Sometimes I use Illustrator to paint with, other times I use Procreate or Adobe Sketch or Clip Studio Paint, depending on my mood.
setup: Wacom Cintiqu 22HD
my background: Digital artist 20 years (professional) and have illustrated comic books, portraits, and a whole bunch of merchandise (hats, patches, shirts, pins, mugs, stickers, etc. etc. etc.)
Want to see Illustrator processes? Here is a movie of another painting I did in Illustrator with a cartoon style.
My art channel (on youtube)
I'm good at making demos/tutorials now that I upgraded my software.
Moving forward, I would like to get better with watercolor effects and work in still life. I'm playing around with real watercolors, but I'm not very good yet. I think in "digital" language I guess.
