Digital art seemed unfathomable as for my entire life, I have drawn on paper and had learned how to draw on paper. In fact i believed Digital art was beyond me while at the same time i knew it enabled for an amount of detail and precision that would really help my mental images and drafts come to life. I longed for a representation of my MC Skin combined with my favorite animal (deer), and had exactly in my head what it looked like. However, i could only bring it to full life through digital drawing... Since i knew for sure i would have never started a digital work properly from scratch, I decided to combine the best of both worlds: I used paper and pencil to draw the general idea and shape of both me (my minecraft skin) and the deer. I then scanned the draft and colored it in Medibang, also giving in to the need to add more details and toy with the program I found myself satisfied with this first result. Today, I am glad to announce I have finally finished my first ever digital artwork: The product of both manual pencil and new technology creating what i think is my first proper drawing of a person and an animal. I still cannot fathom how I only used my mouse for this: I own no drawing tablet. Hopefully this is an inspiration for other artists out there that it IS possible to draw not merely with talent, but hard work and especially inspiration. Constructive criticism is welcome if not encouraged, especially since this is my very first attempt.
