So I decided to try something interesting, this program called Alchemy. Which is a sort of sketch/digital paint program like photoshop or painter. It does either bitmap or vector and allows you to work in a process of abstraction and experimentation with your sketches. Drawing environments, creatures, people, or whatever subjects that appear within the white space.

I did a couple, so give them a look and interpret how you see them. Some say they see things I don't even recognize and it brings a lot of thought on what can be done through simplicity of shape and color.

I recommend this for some casual sketching/ideation. I think it helps to expand the mindset of visual exploration.

Cool dude, it's always interesting to see what people come up with on Alchemy. It's usually not that similar. Just to set the record straight, Alchemy is a vector program, but it can flatten the image to a raster from Alchemy itself if you want it to. I prefer to save as a pdf and then import it to Illustator, there I can mess with the layers, or delete things. then you can export it to Photoshop for even more flexibility.
