I’ve started getting into food Illustration and wanted to share my rough illustration. I’m working on a project and am in the rough stages of illustrating. One of the best investments I made this year was purchasing the Intuos Pro.. for anyone into photo editing,design or illustration this is an option to look into.
I’ve opted for the Corel Suite versus ADOBE, it’s easier to work with and one big difference is that it has a learning program called Corel Essentials. Corel Essentials is fantastic to learn on for the novice artist and photographer , the price is right and available to download on the website for fifty dollars. If you are not sure try the trial version and you can test if it’s a good fit. Adobe requires a monthly membership fee and is expensive starting out ..not to mention the program is overwhelming for the novice user. The great thing about Corel, once you have learned the basics on Corel Essentials the next step up is Corel Painter which is available for 315.00. You can learn on Corel Essentials without paying for the full program. Corel Painter does have 30 day trial if you are more advanced in photo editing and digital art.I know I will be buying the full program when my time runs out (I love it!) . I will be using both Corel and Adobe for my illustrations and designs.. For this rough sketch.. I used Sketchbook, Picmonkey and Corel Painter.. Looking forward to getting this onto a canvas and adding more detail.
Hope this helps someone and let me know what you think
Appreciate any suggestions and feedback,
