Drawing by the river

Part of a larger picture, this was an experiment with line weight and texture as well as a little pencil shading. All of this was digital and, as usual, I bounced between Corel Painter and Procreate. Linework was done in Painter and coloring in Procreate.

The First Artist article by National Geographic

Fascinating article in National Geographic about the origins of art and the first people that were its’ creators.

What I find most amazing, is that this art is as close to permanent as we are capable. In our current world, most of the art we create is fleeting, unable to survive only a few decades, but we are looking at art from the dawn of mankind.
