Digital Marbling

For the last three weeks or so, I have been beta testing an iPad app called Edru. This app recreates the traditional art of marbling that is normally done with paint. I have created a few images, and then combined them with my own background and shading techniques. Here are some of them.

If you are interested in the Edru app, scroll down to the bottom of this post for a video.

Alcohol Ink Backgrounds

I recently discovered alcohol inks, and lots of YouTube videos showing the cool things you can do with them. I created a bunch of background textures for my digital art.

Here is one of the textures I created.

and here are two copies of one of the gradients from Set 023 of my digital papers.

Using the blending techniques I talked about in my last video, I created these four different blends. I can’t figure out which is my favourites.

iColorama class

I have been taking a class called iColorama Creative with Susan Tuttle and Nicki Fitz-Gerald. If you have any interest in using iColorama, I highly recommend this class.

One of my favourite lessons is about taking a photo, and applying a black & white sketch effect to a portion of it, and a painterly colour effect to the other part. Here are a few of my paintings.
