Moulin Rouge AKA done is better than perfect

Painting on the iPad is somewhat addictive. This is my first try to create anything more intricate than a sketch on Procreate. I’ve been working on this piece for a month. It’s a learning curve trying to paint in Procreate (I normally use plain ol’ Photoshop), and in the process of learning I’ve slowly become addicted, I kept experimenting, cleaning up and adding up, and as a result, the work is never done.

At one point I said, that’s enough. Time to move on to other paintings and explore different styles. Let’s save this as JPEG and upload it, like, now! Today! So here it is!

PS: The Moulin Rouge building is photo referenced ’cause I’ve never been to Paris. I plan to, someday.

Drawing outfits are fun! In this piece I’m trying a new drawing & coloring style. I’m always awful at drawing “fashion proportions” but I’m trying my best to learn.

PS: This is based on the previous post “what to wear to my cousin’s wedding”, but of course I added in the snake for good measure 😀

PPS: The snake’s name is Valentine. She’s a floral Burmese Python.
