I've really enjoyed this class.  I've always liked drawing and I have some experience photoshopping pictures and using tablets, so I looked forward to taking digital arts.  I feel like I learned a lot of techniques to digitally create my own original images in a short amount of time, and I became comfortable with Corel Painter.  I have Painter X at home and I'm glad I know how to use it now.  I learned about the DADA movement that lead to pop art, Andy Warhol, impressionism, Van Gogh, surrealism, and Salvador Dali.  I'm glad I got the chance to draw out my creativity in these projects as well as make a lot of other drawings on the side, and I look forward to taking Digital Arts II next year.

This was another illustration I had created for the online school but I couldn't come up with an inspirational quote to put on it so I haven't used it and I forgot to upload it.  I drew it in Corel Painter XI using a colour palette of only the Homestuck trolls' blood colours.


 Aradia Megido

 Tavros Nitram

 Sollux Captor

 Karkat Vantas

 Nepeta Leijon

 Kanaya Maryam

 Terezi Pyrope

 Vriska Serket

 Equius Zahhak

 Gamzee Makara

 Eridan Ampora
 Feferi Peixes

 God Tier Vriska
 Marquise Spinneret Mindfang, Vriska's ancestor

 Neophyte Redglare, Terezi's ancestor

Orphaner Dualscar, Eridan's ancestor

I drew all of the trolls from the webcomic Homestuck (created by Andrew Hussie) in Corel Painter XI just for fun.  I used the tool DigitalColor Meter for reference and revised these pictures a lot in order to create sharper and better quality images with well-defined colours.
