New artwork: Heart, Might, Mind, and Strength. This is the first piece I’ve painted in Procreate with my new iPad Air and Apple Pencil. Also of note, I used one or two brushes from Matthew Baldwin’s oil masterset. And a touch of chromatic aberration and lens distortion in Affinity Photo.

I’m slowly getting back into doing non-religious art, and What Do You Mean, “What Are You Doing?” is my first real entry there. It started out as a random doodle in pencil, which I scanned and then redrew in Procreate Pocket on my phone, which is also where I did the coloring and texturing.

With this piece, by the way, I found that a) working on an iPhone 11 really, really makes me miss the pressure sensitivity on my old iPhone 8, and b) I’m at the point where I’ve finally decided to start saving up for an Apple Pencil and iPad. I’ve hesitated to go down that path since it’s an expensive one (the iPad part, that is), but the benefits are now pretty clear to me.
