This weeks assignment in digital was to do what ever we wanted. I am choosing to reasearch tradigital, more specifically taking water color and digital and combining them. I love working with watercolors they have a charm to them and they are very spontaneous. Water color makes wonderful drippy marks that I do not know how to get digitally and it seems like many happy accedents occure. However in todays world knowing digital is required, also I have a hard time getting dark values with my water color. One of my favorite illustrators Justin Gerard has used this method of watercolors with digital very nicely. if you follow the link to his blog and look under the hobbit you will be able to see his process. With this tradigital process there is all the spontanity that happens natrally with water colors then it is scanned in and digitally refined and values are added.
