Overland Art, 12.18
I started working with a tablet app called Procreate after seeing a buddy at the office (@wafflegripper) do some drawing on his iPad. Its been a couple years, but I had tried several different painting/drawing apps but nothing really clicked. Procreate was different; It was smooth, responsive and very natural. I was intrigued so starting doing some paintings with it. The first was decidedly landscape and then I started doing paintings of buddies overland rigs, so @overlandart was born and I started a new Instagram channel just for these.
I’ll be building a library of these over time and may eventually do something more commercial and/or take commission works, time will tell, but right now I’m enjoying experimenting and learning…
The first few paintings were spent experimenting and learning the different tools. Enjoying the process along the way. This next batch of four gets a bit more polished.
Looking forward to the next few paintings over the Christmas holiday.
And here’s a “making of” timelapse of the process. Procreate is a great app! I’m running this on a 2+ year old iPad Pro (12.9”) and these files are getting layered up pretty heavily (15+ layers). Loving it!
