@aromoma That's really cool!! I've always wanted a screen tablet, you're living the dream. Also, I'm happy to hear that you enjoy digital drawing more, too! I look forward to see what you draw every day, (including your traditional stuff too!)

But yeah, I also agree with how you feel digitally vs traditionally. It's really hard to dislike one, they're kinda like two sides of the same coin

Aww, that's too bad! I like new leaf too, but Wild World is still my favourite animal crossing, probably mostly because of the nostalgia tho. I'll definitely let you know!!

@snailtendo I used to hate digital drawing, but a few months ago, I got an onscreen drawing tablet and its changed my life! Its made the process of drawing digitally a lot easier for me and I would highly recommend it!

I still do sketch with pencils for thumbnails or when I'm brainstorming for ideas or character designs. I have a scanner so I can edit them digitally if i like.

I think I prefer painting and coloring traditionally for the look of it. Hard to replicate that digitally (though you definitely can if you're skilled enough). Drawing digitally just gives me alot more room to explore without fear of making mistakes. So, both have their perks!

Also! I love New Leaf! It was my favorite Animal Crossing before New Horizons came out, lol. My first New Leaf town has been lost to time, however. :( Otherwise, I'd share my friend code. But if you ever get New Horizons, we should def play together!

@aromoma Thanks aromoma! :D Hmm, that's a hard one. I really like both! But think I like digital a bit more because you don't have to buy new supplies like you have to do for traditional art. And you don't have to look down to draw. But drawing traditionally is super freeing as well!

How about you? Do you like one more than the other? Also congrats on getting the new Animal Crossing!!! That's so exciting, I'm still playing new leaf to this day (ˊ̥̥̥̥̥ ³ ˋ̥̥̥̥̥) (still love it tho)

woo! how does it feel to work digitally? do you have a preference for traditional or digital?

More submissions by snailtendo for Daily Art Club

More unfinished studies. Still working on edges, so hopefully I can apply that to these tomorrow (´・_・`)

Accidentally slept for almost the whole day, I have officially broken my 3 day streak of waking up at 6am ༼ ༎ຶ ෴ ༎ຶ༽

Some more primitive shading practice aaa

Some quick primitives light and shadow practice
Still working on the transitions!

From non-study things today!

  1. A road
  2. Confusing Simon Stalenhag inspired sketch-thing
    I had no idea how to shade this one x⸑x

Another messy mountain today. Will try to do more things tomorrow!

Woo finally posting before midnight! Today's things are more studies, original art by Oga Kazuo! The application is a WIP not in the picture.

Update on stickk, I really like it!! I'm making another commitment for this week and raising the penalty.

Some value film still studies! These are from Kiki's Delivery Service. The last one is my own inspired by the other 3!

Today's things! Some imagined architecture things! Oh and I think I found a solution to my laziness. (:3」∠)
I started using Stickk yesterday! Just testing it for the weekend

Attempting a plant study
Hopefully I can finish this one 🙀

Late submit because I fell asleep before posting!! Which is exciting!!! Hopefully that fixes my sleep at least a little

Anyways, here's the final thing I've been drawing these past few days. I think it turned out pretty nice!! I have finally made a decent mountain/rock kinda thing guys

I found one of my older tablets which is slightly broken but still usable ;u;
Happy that I don't have to buy a new one for a while

Continuation of yesterday!! And an update, there is definitely a problem with either my computer or my tablet nooooo 。゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。

I wish I could've added more but the pen is super laggy and the buttons don't work so I did most of this with the straight line tool & my mouse and it turned out pretty good?? An unexpected upside

Hopefully though with some more googling there's a fix bc I'm too broke to buy a new thing ヘ(。□°)ヘ

Oof just this really early sketch for re-do of a study I did a few days ago. I haven't been really putting enough time into art this past week, partly because of my sleep schedule but mostly cause I've been pretty distracted with other non-important things. 😱 Also my tablet hasn't been working well since this morning, I'm not sure if it's broken or not?? But yes, here are my thoughts behind today's entry! Aiming for a better day tomorrow

Today's study!! The trees on the mountain was the biggest of struggles

Sorry for the super overexposed image! 😱 Some experimental editing things happened in between and forgot to save

Some architecture things. More tomorrow!

Today's study! Gonna try and sleep early so I don't wake up so late 😱

Today's study! Still unsure how to do a bunch of things, but I think today's turned out pretty good :D

Some quick film studies! The bottom 2 are mine I made based on the ones on top

Another study attempt 😱 (WIP)

Today's things!

  1. Some architecture practice! From the left is one from reference & the other 3 from a different angle. On the right are two ref-ed structures.
    2.An environment study! I think this one is better than yesterday's, but the water got me, whoops
  2. Composition studies from My Neighbor Totoro
  3. Attempt at thumbnail compositions based on the prev. comp studies

An attempt at replicating this landscape!! Landscapes & painting them are a super weak spot for me

I think a big mistake for this one was that I used a hard chunky brush (I used it to sketch, but it carried over to the final thing, whops) for everything and then used a soft cloud brush for the clouds. Also, I felt like the painting process or at least the feeling of the whole study feels more like markers rather than painting, so I'm trying to wrap my head around that. :0 Also, the details of a landscape always get to me. Hopefully I can approach it differently tomorrow!
