I use imgur to host my images, JPGs. Once, an image is downloaded, I open the image in a new tab, and copy that link. If you copy the embed link, you will likely get a link to the page where it is being hosted instead of the image.
I use an iPad Pro and switch between working with Procreate, and then I use Astropad to turn it into a Cintiq of sorts. I love this system because it is very versatile. I can take my iPad out to dinner or an airplane to work, or I can use it with Astropad to work in Photoshop. Win/win.
That said, I also have a Wacom tablet, and it's really great to be able to switch back and forth between close in drawing on the iPad, and then far away painting with the Wacom.
I am trying to decide between a few tiger designs, one I want to put in a setting where the cub is behind a tub, not wanting to get in until they are intrigued by the ducky floating in it. The other is meant to be a scenario where someone is swimming in a lake and the tiger is embarrassed that it was caught wanting to use the lake for bath time, or the tiger could be eager to join someone in their pool, where you just see their head poke above the rim of the pool or something like that. Going for a sketchy, cutesy style almost like a kids drawing, but the tiger I made at the top of the page I would definitely fix up a bit if people like it. It was kind of a way to also figure out the color and brush styles.
This is my first time participating in the monthly challenge, and while looking into all the info on what I need my artwork to be in order to upload, I came upon the question of how to resize my art down to 1200px for whatever side of the canvas is longest, when I use procreate for everything right now?
If anyone is also wondering how to resize their art small enough to upload without cropping the art, I found a super short video tutorial with the solution: https://youtu.be/Go6z2hXo2sU
I'm learning something new all the time with the procreate app. Best money I ever spent haha
I'm not getting any Godzilla vibes, looks great to me! 🙂 My only other thought is that she could be holding her head in a kind of exasperated way? But I like the way her paws fill the space and lead you into the scene, so probably perfect as it is. 🐯 Good luck! Looking forward to seeing the finished piece.
Hi @chrisaakins. I voted b - it feels more more vibrant and exciting. I like the air of mystery but I agree that there could be a few more clues as to what she might have made - maybe a footprint or a shadow or some tools or some left over bits and bobs, maybe?
I think the more green and warm colors looks like a more fun color harmony that fits the more abstract quality of your illustration, rather than the more blue and cool toned colors in #3. The colors feel more deliberate.
I think #2 is my favorite of the three. The tree in the middle of the page fits with the other trees better for that look of depth without distracting from the character off to the side of it. I also really love the brush textures in this, especially the mixed watercolor wash look.
