Everyone knows that eyes are a mirror to someone’s soul. The eyes have this habit of capturing the essence of one’s soul and reflecting it, just like a mirror does. Eyes are the ones that betray our feelings and emotions. They are one of our most prized possessions. Just like a book that is read, they reveal our mysteries.
While looking through some of my old files, I came across this digital drawing I have made some time ago, and the moment I saw it, I knew I had to share it. Even though it is clearly not a masterpiece, but rather a mere drawing practice.
In the past, I used to have a deviantart account, but last year I decided to delete it because I was no longer active. Not that I was too active before either. At that time, I was pretty sure that it would take quite a while for me to get back to drawing, but I was wrong. One day, I came across a free app, called Krita, which I downloaded and tried out. It was similar to Photoshop. Unfortunately, it was laggy on my laptop, since it is quite old and not as good as other newer ones. (But I still love it, because it allowed me to do so many things! Thank you, lapie-chan!
Later on, I discovered Paint Tool SAI. I tried it out, noticed it did not use as many resources as Krita, and stuck to it. From that moment on, I knew I had to draw again. Or, doodle, at least. Though, the ticking time at the top of the screen surely got me somewhat scared. (It was a trial version.)
Back in 2013, I believe, I was using GIMP. Actually, I still do. Sometimes.
Just for the record, I can still remember my first digital drawing in GIMP. It was almost terrible. And even though two years passed ever since then, I have to say that I still haven’t really spent much time drawing digitally. But even so, I did improve. A little. Though, I still have to learn how to color. And develop my technique too.
In the future, I hope I will be able to buy a drawing tablet and work on even more complicated projects. Such as animation. I would really like to try it out and see how it goes.
Who knows, maybe I could make short animated clips for some of my writings?
