Artistic Polar Bear Challenge: 100 Ways In 100 Days. #45 - Digital

And now for something....almost completely the same!  I loaded the sketch outline of the cartoon bear into Photoshop and 'painted' it there.  Painting with the mouse gets a bit tricky at times.  It made me think about putting a digital graphics tablet on my "Boy I Really Wish I Could Get One But It Probably Won't Ever Happen" Christmas list.

The thing about digital painting is....it makes me wistfully wish that acrylic paints had an 'undo' button.

Check it out! Ain't you sumpin'! Your imagination is endless. I'm so techno-impaired, anyone who can do anything on Illustrators or Photoshop totally impresses me! Maybe there's a future here with a comic strip, or greeting cards, or video games, like "Grand Theft Auto - the Polar Edition".

Totally ROTFL-ing, Terri! Can't you just picture him cruising the strip in a low rider with his Ray-Bans on and rap music on the big honkin' car stereo, and saying things like "Yo" and "Word". OMG I'm laughing so hard I'm in tears.

Leaping out of his ride to thump a poor little seal or penguin...

...he has walruses as body guards, and a little arctic fox as one of those 'weaselly snitch' characters.

OMG, we're really sick puppies. I love it.

I love this - it's so fun! I know whatyou mean about that undo button!! I've heard that there are Wacom tablets that are under $100 so maybe not so far out of your reach?

Hmmmmm Rhonda, that sounds quite tempting. But when I really think about it, the last thing I need is something else that will keep me glued to the computer, which is slowly and insidiously sucking all the free time out of my life.
