So if you missed my last journal I'm doing a massive game project for plucky robot games, which involves drawing a lot of card art.
One of the things I'm drawing is currency aka coins, which are round.
For the sketches I have used the ellipse tool but I chose to trace the shape by hand for the final art, it wobbles minutely but this is a choice I choose to keep because I feel it keeps the humanity of digital art. Or rather the Humanity of MY digital art.
I began my art life as a traditional artist and one of the things I exploited was the accidental nature of some mediums, their very lack of perfection was what I loved about working with them. I always hated my digital art because it was "too perfect" in comparison, and my strong rough sketches have the vibe I want to carry through in my work. I've since found a balance of the accidental and the control which works for me (such as using the geometric lines and shapes in the sketch and tracing for the finished thing).
I was wondering, what's your approach to digital art and do you want your work to be perfect and smooth and flat and wobble free, or do you embrace the wobbles or some other thing?
There's no wrong answer, there are some amazing artists who use the geometry fantastically, and don't lose the hand created humanity of their work, it's just not something that I seem to be able to do.
