The last Monday of 2019… I’ve had a bit of downtime after the holidays, so I took advantage of some of the peace and quiet to play around more with some digital art.
I got my Wacom tablet… maybe a year ago? I’m not even sure at this point, to be completely honest, but it came with a few licenses to some art programs that I just recently remembered. One program was Clip Studio, and I’ve been having fun exploring it! The program does illustrations, comics, and animations, and I wish I thought to download it when I first opened my Wacom tablet.
Being December, I wanted to do something that had to do with snow and ice, and Frosmoth won out. I think Frosmoth has one of the prettiest designs of the Galar Pokemon, so I figured I’d take a shot and try to do a picture showcasing it. There were a few layers — one for the background, another for a quick sketch, a third for colors, and a forth for the speckles of hail and snow — and the program had some fun stamps and decorations to help with the quick background, such as the foliage. The sky itself was part gradient and part blending of a few different darker shades.
While Frosmoth isn’t as detailed as I would like, I am happy with the final result. It’s softer and bright against the background, and it was fun trying out all sorts of different tools to design it. Any kind constructive criticism is appreciated, especially if you have tips on use Clip Studio!
