NEW October 2020 ~ Day Of The Dead Sugar Skull!
I really enjoyed creating this Day of the Dead Apple for one of the NEW 12 monthly apples for this year! I am not a pro ~ at all ~ at digital art but I can manage in my cheating way! People who know how to create digital art can draw right on a tablet or computer. Since I don’t have the appropriate software or ipad my work around had been to hand draw an image, scan it and then optimize it to “allow” me to change out the colors digitally. It’s not slick and it most certainly isn’t perfect but it gets the job done!
I drew this Sugar Skull into the shape of an apple – the shape is so close that it was perfect for this inspiration! Then I added the flourishes that adorn sugar skulls. I had fun with that part! Then once I started coloring it in my computer I realized that I needed to do a few different color ways because I couldn’t decide which one I liked best.
I’d love to hear which is your favorite and any ideas you might have for November’s apple!
