super quick speedpaint, playing with different techniques. 2-3 hr?

I've found that I really like digital painting! Meaning not doing the usual sketch-line-color process. I HATE lineart with a passion lol - feels like you spend too much time making something that doesn't look that great in the end and tends to look more cartoony than I intendded. (not that it's a bad technique!! Some people are very good with it, it's just not for me.) Painting feels more like I'm molding something in 3D, it's like a digital clay and better matches how I think :P I think in 3D, sculpting is actually more natural to me in a way than sketching. So might be playing with this sort of thing more!

Besides, I like to experiment :D

See, I can't paint for crap; I have to have an outline. I used to steal my grandma's old Lockheed-Martin drafting pens all the time, lol. Can't get them anymore, so I have to shell out dough for Sakura India Ink microns...>.<

I painted a picture once in OpenCanvas, of a Hurricane gal in a bikini at the came out pretty splendid, too. Dunno what go into me that day. I enjoy digital art a lot myself, but trying to wrap my brain around a tablet is a bitch. I own a Wacom bamboo that I scored for like, twenty bucks, still in the package at a used bookstore that came with ArtRage painter...but I have zero time to learn anything lol. I wish I could figure out a way to configure the buttons on the stylus to work with OpenCanvas. It's a very basic program, partway between the old MS paint and the more advanced painters with a layer system that autodetects the other layers and interacts as if they're all transparent. Sort of a pain, but good for simple, cartoony doodles. The program is also capable of wonderfully detailed work, with a little effort.
