Digital Watercolour – Chinese Opera Singer

This was a gift, done in digital watercolour in Clip Studio Paint. I like the brushes in CSP, but unfortunately, even now, I can’t really get used to the way that you need to press down hard on the drawing tablet to get the watercolour function to behave the way it’s supposed to. Believe it or not, it tires out my hand, and I much prefer just using the airbrush function in Photoshop CS to colour.

This was also the first colour picture I’ve done that I inked digitally. It was a disaster – I hate digital inking and it seems that nothing has changed. It’s much faster to ink by hand, so that’s what I’ll continue to do. I inked it based off the sketch below.
