Loving Adobe Fresco – New Drawings in 2023
I have been getting busy with Adobe Fresco. (Fresco is FREE by the way!) I admit it, I love digital drawing! If you are an artist that is making a transition from analog materials into the digital world, then look no further than Adobe Fresco. I know, Im excited, and no, they are not paying me to say this. This is a great product and piece of software, but mainly, a powerful tool! Did I already say that it was free?
What exactly is “digital drawing”? Let’s try to break it down, or at least interpret it, digital drawing is the process of creating artwork using digital tools. Examples? Well, digital tools can be a graphics tablet (iPad or iPhone) and stylus (apple pencil), or a touchscreen device.. These kinds of tools are important because they allow us to create, edit, and share the work more easily and efficiently than traditional methods. Digital art can be easily stored, shared, and edited, whereas traditional art, such as physical drawings or paintings, can be difficult to preserve and share. I know this because I have a seemingly endless “space and storage” issue with those things.. Additionally, digital drawing allows for greater precision and control, as well as the ability to undo mistakes and experiment with different techniques and effects. Im not saying that Im going to give up paint, paper, pencils, markers and charcoal, but, wow, drawing with a tool like Fresco is addicting!
Let’s check out some new work below!
Look at those clean, smooth stylized vector lines! If you would to color this drawing in, e-mail me and I’ll send you a pdf version to work from. I had a blast drawing this, and also colorizing it, digitally..
With so many new and accelerating technologies and tools popping up everywhere, what will art look like in 10 years? I find it difficult to predict exactly what the future of art will look like in 10 years, as it is constantly evolving (in general) and being influenced by various factors such as technology, society, culture, the media, politics, social issues, education, individual artists and etcetera… However, it is likely that technology will continue to play a significant role in the creation and consumption of visual art. For example, virtual and augmented reality will become more integrated into the art-viewing experience, allowing viewers to interact with and experience art in new ways. Additionally, the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the creation of art will become more prevalent. It’s also possible that more creators will start to use digital platforms to distribute their work and make art more accessible to a global audience. However, traditional mediums like painting, sculpture, and printmaking will always have a place in the art world, and in my process and heart for sure!
