These digital paintings seem to create themselves sometimes. I just seem to be the person holding the brush/stylus. I have started calling it multiple choice painting. I don’t know where I am going with it but make one multiple choice after another.
What brush should I choose?
What size should the brush be?
Should I add a new layer?
Above or below the current layer?
What blending mode should the layers have?
Should the contrast be changed?
Should I adjust the hues or saturation?
I continue like this until the result starts to look like something I won’t want to disown. This one turned out a little more on the dark side and appears a bit forbidding. Creating a title for something that you didn’t start out to make and is hard to identify with is sometimes the most difficult part of the process.
