to painter or not to painter

I've been trying out a program called Corel Painter, that we were introduced to at uni. It imitates real artists materials.
I do like the fact that there's a program out there that can achieve these kind of real textures, but at the same time, it feels that.. well... isn't it easier to use a real pencil?

I guess there's no undo button in real life :)

Below is the pengi I created for this week's Illustration Friday topic - Polar.


First of all...

Here we go..

I thought I'd finally bite the bullet and start a blog.
(Blog is such an ugly word... couldn't they have thought of something that rolls a little nicer off the tongue?)

I'm a designer/ illustrator and have just gone back to uni this year to study animation full-time. yay!

I'd like to use this space to post my artwork and works in progress, in the hope that it will provide the much-needed kick up the ass, to get me working on creative stuff more often.

So milk and cookies... as the description suggests, are nicer than bread and butter. Bread and butter is what we do to survive. Milk and cookies is all the fun stuff in between. Sometimes the two overlap (in a cookie sandwich?) This blog will mainly be about the milk and cookie side of life..
