Hey!, i don't think you need a traditional background in order to do digital art but is good to know it so you can paint whatever you want in any kind of place or canvas, i have done it digitally since the start, and is hard for me to draw traditionally since i make a lot of mistakes that i can't fix 'cuz is not digital, I'm used to making mistakes in digital because i can fix them on the ongoing of the painting, but in traditional is so hard to fix a mistake when is painting or ink. The only thing you need to know that applies to any kind of style, traditional or digital, are the fundamentals, once you get coverage of all the fundamentals or at least the most important ones (funny thing is that every of those is important) you can paint in any style you want. There are people like me that our painting workflow is really messy and that's why doing it traditionally would be a painful workflow, but still with fundamentals you can do pretty much everything. Hope it helps! C:
Hey all! this is my entry for the contest! I had a lot of fun with this!! So for those who might wonder what is this piece all about its basically the main character and the two enemies, these two enemies are The Anxiety (the red one) and the depression (the blue one), the idea with the design of these characters was to create some sort mask that hides their true self, many people still think that anxiety and depression is a joke or some kind of trending when in reality it's more dangerous and evil than you could imagine, that's why both characters have a wood mask that hides how the devil they really are. In the middle, we have the main character that has been fighting against these demons for many years, he's still standing 'cuz he knows that the only way he can survive is never giving up, he's a normal guy, with dreams like everyone, so he will not give up on those dreams and will definitely fight and win these demons that disturb him. Hope everyone likes it !!
