New Thing #352: Drawn Together
As I've mentioned before, I am not crafty and I have next to no talent in fine and applied arts. I draw a great hummingbird, and that's about it. So I used a Wacom graphics tablet. I'm not sure why I thought this would make my artwork look any better. A crappy drawing is a crappy drawing no matter what you use to make it. And using Kevin's graphics pen and tablet was like trying to draw in zero gravity. There's hovering and pointing and poking and stabbing just to make a crude drawing in Photoshop. I know people who make amazing drawings and designs with these things for a living, and it's good for all of us that I'm not one of them. I sort of sat there muttering, 'draw something!' Then I drew some Thing. This is my artistic reinterpretation of that moment. It was glorious.
