This vector started as an Adobe capture of cattails in a metal vase on a bookcase in my office. With the image saved in Lightroom, I could edit directly on the computer with Photoshop or with an app on the iPad or the Samsung Galaxy tablet.
I decided to trace the capture with the Infinite Design app on the Android tablet. It is a fun app with many tools. For this drawing, I tried all of them.
Infinite Design is a great addition to my Android tablet.
I started this drawing with the SketchBook Pro app on a Samsung Galaxy Pro Note and finished on a computer with Photoshop.
I needed the practice of using guides.
With Lightroom on my tablet, sending a layered drawing to my computer is a breeze.

With each drawing, I learn something new.

With ArtRage 4. I lighten the background and used the palette knife to turn the smudges into texture.
