As a kid I used to enjoy sketching with a pencil. As I went through school and university, I did less and less art, though I still did doodle dragons occasionally. As part of university, I bought a laptop with an active stylus so that I could take notes with handwriting. Now I use that stylus for digital art, which I enjoy as a change of pace from programming. Many thanks to the guys who run "Daily Spitpaint" on facebook that keeps me inspired with new topics to draw about, and to Bob Ross for being awesome.
This page has oldest at the top, and is so that I can see how I have improved over time.
2013I bought a graphics tablet my adventures into digital painting began.
2014I bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, so I could now draw on the screen! But I struggled to find an art program with a workflow that I liked. I settled on Artflow, which does well enough.
2015In this year I bought a Lenovo Yoga, so I could now do art with a program I knew (ie gimp). It didn't help anything as the limit was me.
2016In 2016 I discovered spit-paints (half an hour drawings on a set topic), but I didn't do many of them.
