Adobe Fresco, Inktober52, Vector Art


This week’s prompt is “ancient”, I was thinking buildings or ruins, but my eldest suggested a tortoise. A good suggestion! I chose the Galapagos tortoise because they have a long life span and a wonderfully large shell (which makes putting words on it easier). I drew this with a reference photo using Adobe Fresco and an Apple Pen on an iPad. I used the vector brushes and worked from shadow to light using layers. I have to admit, this wasn’t pushing my envelope very much. I enjoy making images this way, but the experience was improved and streamlined using the pressure pen.
