adobe fresco

while starting up adobe draw, i was invited to try fresco. great. I wouldn’t have known about it without an invitation. it’s sort of a mini version of photoshop–but so much more. it combines vector art with raster-based art which are separated by the layers and the tools used to create them.

i quickly learned to draw large blocks of solid color with the vector layers and then add texture and shading with the raster (pixel) layers.
the trees were drawn as vector art. another layer of pixel art adds shading and texture.

new ipad

my amazing significant other, tim, had the brilliant idea to surprise me with a new ipad with pen capabilities. I have not been able to put it down. i’m impressed with the pressure sensitivity.

playing around, i appreciated the ability to zoom in for infinite detail.

wow.. and the brushes available are endless. all vector art.
