I injured my wrist a while ago. I’m not completely sure how. At some indistinct point after that fall during ultimate, my back, wrist, and ankle began to hurt – but all on my left side. This is weird because I fell on my right side. That is where all the scrapes and bruises are. Sometimes I don’t understand mild injuries at all.
If you recall a few posts ago, I’d professed a desire to deviate from programming – at least temporarily. Karl suggested 3D. A good suggestion, but so many clicks to open 3D Studio Max. I called it off.
I launched Photoshop with what would amount to nearly as many (probably exactly as many) clicks. I’d try a different colouring technique.
I don’t have a problem with the way I colour. In fact, I am usually pretty happy with it. But, you know.. trying knew things, developing skills, etc. That’s a real thing, right?
To be honest, I am lazy. I will totally try things just to see if they will be faster/less work than my usual methods. Also if I think they think they can defeat me.
So I coloured a picture. It took a few sessions, because of the wrist pain, but eventually I finished it.
I wasn’t super happy with the result. I’ll probably give the technique another try. Give it a fair chance, and all that.
I do need to get better at tabletting. With paper, I’ll rotate it a bit to get the right arc. When I try that with the tablet I get all confused, because the picture is still straight on the monitor. I can tilt the monitor as well, sometimes, but that’s pretty slanty.
I really need to work on separating the two representations better in my head. I could see that potentially being very difficult, though.
Here is the coloured image, but shrunk in hopes of disguising its quality:
