Art #13 -- Rustic Tribal Cyclops Insignia


This is my first attempt at creating some kind of art piece entirely digitally. It took me approximately 45 to 60 minutes to create most of it, and I made some minor adjustments afterwards.

I have wanted to try my hand at doing digital art for at least a year, but I put it off several times. This is partially because I'm primarily comfortable with doing paper-based drawings, but also due to me simply lacking confidence that I would ever pull off a digital art piece that I am satisfied with.

As it happens, I am in fact much more happy with this piece than I expected to be. It turned out looking a lot nicer than I had anticipated. With this being my first proper go at digital art, a lot of the creation process involved experimentation, and exploring how different brushes look amongst one another within the same canvas.

Overall, I am fairly satisfied with the finished piece. I am glad that I took a plunge outside of my comfort zone, and as a result of this piece's outcome, I now look forward to doing more digital art endeavours in the future! :-D

The pink highlights around the edges of the eye's white area, are inspired by pink areas in eyes of the Primarina character from the Pokémon series.

Created in Serif DrawPlus X6 using various brushes, some transparency styles, a couple of altered QuickShapes, and a couple of Filter Effects. Brush strokes drawn entirely using a Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 1000.
