Dabbling in virtual paint



I spent some time this evening experimenting with Painter, a computer program that simulates various drawing and painting media. Together with a Wacom tablet, one can get some impressive painterly effects. I was inspired by my online buddy, Janee Trasler, who's a Painter pro, so I pulled out my virtual paint brush, and created this image. I kinda like it.

Soon as I get some spare time, I'm going to convert some of my harder-edged art, meant for licensing, into this softer style.
