Does this look different? Ok, it’s an experiment! I am working on creating an video of a napkin actually being created. I thought I would start in Photoshop and use the ‘actions’ feature to record me drawing one using my Wacom digitizing tablet. It didn’t work. It drew the whole thing only to find that it recorded each color change I did, just not the actual drawing! Oh well.
A good lesson for all you budding artists out there. Do NOT expect to have good results for quite a while when you try a new medium, whether oil paints or a Wacom tablet. I am showing mine anyway, so you can see my progress (if I ever try it again, that is). My next attempt will probably be to use my actual camera to record each stroke as I make it. I expect that will take me a long time.
But I am not tired of thinking nor have I reached a conclusion!
