Saturn-like: Day 8


A pretty boring weekend so far. I have zero plans for my Saturday, so I spent a few hours messing around with the different pencils I own. Finding the right colors that I wanted to inevitably use for today’s project. I’m hoping that I can find something else to do today!

Yesterday I created a quick space scene with Photoshop, while today I tried doing something similar with pencils and paper. I only filled out about half of the page, but it turned out pretty good! I did alter a few things in Photoshop after taking the picture. The contrast was adjusted a tad, and I made the stars way brighter than they were with the original. Overall I’m happy with how it turned out, but I think I’ll stick with Photoshop for space scenes in the future. This was a pretty fun project though.

I’m really enjoying going back and forth from digital artwork to the real world stuff. I’m going to keep this up for awhile. I would even like to find other ways to create artwork as well. I have some ideas on how to keep things interesting in the future when I could potentially get bored of using the same two mediums. I’ll keep the ideas to myself for now though. It should be a nice surprise in the future.

      Kinda. I actually had it on while I was drawing this lol but I haven’t been paying attention to any of it. Been busy with other things. I’ll have to go through it again when I have the time and dedication to pay attention heh

  • Kudos for keeping it up through the weekend!
    Very nice.

      Hey, thanks Eric. Hasn’t been too tough. A couple of those days I only spent like 20-30 minutes drawing something. Probably took longer to type a few paragraphs about it heh

    I like how you experimented with digital space the previous day then did some paper space scene the next day just to see what happens 🙂

    • I had to keep things interesting! I knew I had a long ways to go.
