Milk Jug [digital drawing]

Digital drawing of an old-fashioned milk jug.

This was mny first digital drawing after I bought my pen tablet, in 2008. I wanted it to look like a charcoal drawing.

Well, to be honest, it was my first -successful- digital drawing. It took a while until I was able to draw anything with the pen tablet. The coordination between eyes and hand movement is significantly different from drawing with a pen or piece of charcoal on paper. Plus, I tried the different option in Photoshop for the brush until I found one which “felt” most like real charcoal.

But I am still proud of this milk jug drawing, because I think that it really resembles a crawing with charcoal, and the strong contrasts between light and shadow are beautiful.
