Baby Elephant and snail

baby-elephant.web

This is my first full drawing complete on the Cintiq 24″ drawing tablet drawn and edited at the same time in Photoshop cc.  I am happy that |I was able to complete it.  It just started from a little black ink on white zentangle paper and it went from there.  I had to add the snail for storytelling and the yellow light and green background light look very similar.  But I had to move forward because this little guy only has 2 legs so he is a total fantasy.

This is fun and I am learning every day.  I am using a new very tiny separate keyboard which fits under the tablet and that is also a new learning curve for me.  |It is challenging and learning a new language is always difficult.  But of course, it’s fun too.  The cintiq has its own keyboard but it takes a little time to access it.  Also this keyboard is one I can type in spanish with.  I will have to practice to find all the special digits and strokes.

I can see where this little drawing and this series of drawings can be turned into many treatments.  Here is the original sketch in pen and ink along with other zentangle sketches.  The other drawings are waiting to be edited and turned into colored and finished artworks.  Thanks for looking.
