Sketch N Draw procedural drawing, imported into GIMP for gradient background and a drawn intermediate layer with Wacom tablet. Not thrilled about the muddiness in the bottom half, but its hard to do controlled application of brushes in Sketch N Draw since it doesn’t have layering.
Incidentally, I notice that most of these pictures look quite different depending on the monitor that views them. My laptop monitor has a much worse color display than the external LG monitor that I have hooked up to it, for example. I suppose this is one of the hazards of digital art, generally.
There is a lot of sophisticated art that uses highly muted colors. I suppose this is meant to convey a kind of subtlety or contemplation or maturity. Screw that. Juvenile saturation for the win. Sensitivity to “clashing” is just a phase.
