Mandy Spaceleft the Space Cadet

If someone would have told me to stop using Photoshop and not draw anything digital for months on end, if I wanted to level up my art skills. I probably would have told them to go fuck themselves.

But.
As life likes tends to do, it once again showed me that I’m the amateur in this game called life and it’s the veteran.

Well fair enough.

There is something oddly relaxing about the traditional mediums and the tactile pleasure of pencil on paper. I like it.

And then I started painting and that mother filet has a mind of its own. Like trying to calm a waterfall. It doesn’t act like Photoshop painting… But my exercises of not using the color picker was extremely helpful though.

Although, the process was quite the struggle I found patient, mindful strokes – like a slow methodical game of chess – got me further than just blindly adding coatings of paint.

All and all
I’ll definitely do again
Maybe even something serious in the not too distant future.

P.S. I miss my computer.
