I wanted to mention Will Terry in my blog today. I had gotten his name from a fellow illustrator friend who said that they had taken his online course about drawing digitally. SO, I checked it out. Now, I have always drawn "manually"... you know, with my hands and typical drawing tools. ie - pencils, brushes, pastels and more. BUT, for the past few months, I have been having MAJOR eye problems and have not been able to see at all.
My husband had bought me and Ipad for my birthday about a month before the eye problems. I used it to play games and to check my facebook while I sat in the living room with him and watched t.v. in the evenings. I had been getting up during an occassional commercial to do it. haha. He kept saying that he bought it for me to draw on but I really didn't know what to do.
I had downloaded some free drawing apps and purchased a few. SO, then I started playing around and kind of liked it. A little bit after getting the apps is when I happened on to Will Terry http://willterry.blogspot.com/ and FolioAcademy. http://folioacademy.com/
I purchased the online video "Painting on the iPad". It has been really great. I don't actually have the same app that Will Terry used in the video but I still found it extremely helpful and when I get a chance will be getting the app that he used. I am still dealing with eye problems so I'm not getting things done as quick as I would like.
Anyway, just wanted to say that for all of you out there who want to learn how to draw or paint, you really need to check out the FolioAcademy. There is TONS of videos !!
