Basalt Keep of Wilven the Yellow Digital Art Experiment

I have been playing around with some of the digital art tools that I have to see what kind of feasability there was to doing some of my artwork totally digital. Right now, I pretty much do everything traditionally, but then scan it in and alter it as needed. I have an older Wacom Intuos 3 that I haven't gotten much mileage out of, but really wanted to take it for a spin. I also have Clip Studio Paint, Corel Painter 2017, and GIMP, that I kind of dabble with off and on. I am a huge comics fan, and I liked how my sequential art pieces turned out for the Astonshing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea hardback, so I figured I'd like to do some comicbook style stuff in my own style for the Basalt Keep adventure. I really liked the contrast piece that I did in felt marker some time back of Wilven in his lab (below) and figured I'd like to try and do something similar - except completely digitally.

I tried out my Wacom tablet in Gimp but was having some issues. The pen was jerky and didn't feel natural. I tried to fiddle with the drivers but that didn't yield good results until I found some older drivers and destroyed them. I was then pretty pleased with the marker effects in Clip Studio Paint. I think it pretty effectively captured a similar look to the picture of wilven in his lab pic I did.
And it is COMPLETELY digital. There is no real world piece for this, not even the thumbnails I tend to do on typing paper. I dig it and will continue to experiment. I'd like to hear what you think. Cheers and happy gaming!


  1. Looks good! I haven't got the hang of all-digital drawing yet. There's a disconnect between drawing in front of me as normal, but the drawing appearing on the screen that confuses my brain a bit. I think that will go with practice, but I need to just make that jump.
