So if you saw my poll, you probably saw that I took part in this "engineers got talent" exhibit last week
I only put up 4 medium size pics ( since I could only print 1 full size poster for free) and put up couple of photo printed pics I had already for my own reference.
I was actually really surprised because I was the only digital artist there. There were traditional artists, photographers, sculptors, and even a poet, but out of the 13 people who participated in the exhibition, I was the only person with digital art
Also, almost no one who visited knew what digital art was. most people couldn't figure out how I had done my pictures.
After a while, I thought it would be easier to understand with examples, so I pulled out my laptop and tablet so people can watch my speed paint process videos and try out the tablet on their own. People were really interested, and it was a lot of fun~~
Actually, One of the girls here asked me if I was selling my art, the little ones printed on photo paper. THIS HAD NEVER HAPPENED BEFOREE
I was so shocked I just gave it to her for free~ it was really interesting because the picture that she picked was this one:
My long time followers might know, but this picture is really special to me because it was the first real digital picture I did after like a 3~4 year hiatus. After this was when I started really getting into digital art and started to be more active online and stuff; It lead me to paint tool SAI and my intuos5 <3 I just found it really cool that this picture also became the first picture that someone actually asked to buy.
