ok here we go, what images to you use to digitise?
Do you plan it all out on paper first or do you wing it?


I often see images that inspire me so I will open them in the background of my layout program and use them to inspire the design no design ever comes out the same and the process is different every time, the only thing wrong with doing it this way is that I have to finish a design once started as it is very hard to pick it back up later on.Of course if I could draw then I could do the images and this would make it easier but I never have been one to do things the easy way LOL

I have just finished a set of 3 goddess designs tonight that were inspired by a pendant that I fell in love with, alas I can not get it shipped to Aust so I have made some design to put onto shirts instead.

so how do you digitise?
and what inspires you?

So far I have done my own drawings - not that I have done much digitizing and I have tried the wingding/font approach which has yielded mixed results....
I do think that when I get really in to it I will be doing mostly my own artwork...!

Go to emblibrary.com They have huge amounts of  designs. I go there just to browse and get ideas. The membership is free and they have sales frequently. The designs are not expensive to begin with and they have all different formats available.

I understand what you are saying with emblibrary.com .. I buy a lot from them but when I want to digitize something myself - instead of buying a predone design I do work from my own drawings.
