It’s been a few weeks now and I’m still getting a feel for the digital aspect of creating something. Don’t get me wrong I’ve made a gang of vector drawings using Illustrator, but mostly with a mouse. I’ve used styluses before but the programs just didn’t feel as intuitive as a pencil and paper for me.
And then came Adobe Illustrator Draw.
As I’ve mentioned in my last post, I’ve been able to work at a pace that I haven’t felt in a long time. Draw helps me translate all the sketches I’ve wanted to create into a digital format in a very short amount of time and with ease. I’m still working on a learning curve but the best part of this app is that it is very much like drawing mixed with the best parts of vector art. I still need to find a stylus more suited to drawing as I want a level of precision only vector drawings give me.
Which brings us to the subject of this post, this particular drawing has been reworked a few times in various mediums, Ladies and Gentlemen, the Red Devil Woman. RDW is a character I’ve been messing around with for years. The basic idea behind RDW is that she is a recurring force of destruction that pops up when history need a push to stay away from being too peaceful, the ultimate historical jump-start. RDW is always a woman who the force passes to, moving from country to country, woman to woman, always by transferring her horns and not everyone wants to have this power to cause chaos. RDW is the match, the fuse and the dynamite.
If you use this app and have any suggestions for a stylus please pass along.
