|skyscribbles said: I will give you questions too! :D Do you ever feel hesitant to draw (and post) anything for any reason? Maybe you draw it too often or it isn't popular, etc...or do you just draw what you want, when you want without any worries? I know many artists worry about what people think.|
Hi Sky!!! Hooray more questions!! :D This is a really good one, I had to think about this one overnight; it’s so easy to just say yea I post whateva I want!!
But YES! There are things I’m hesitant to draw and/or post!!
I hope that answers your question! Really fun thinking about that one haha. <3 Thanks, Sky!
|telegramme-draws said: Hi ! I love your artwork, especially the sketch ones, I love your style !! I was wondering what kind of brushes you use to make your lines so smooth ? Because mine give a really thick and harsh feel to my lines :/ Anyways, love your work keep it up ! *-*|
A QUESTION! Exciting :3! Hello there <3!
So! I will explain what I use for my brushes in photoshop when I sketch. <3
My brush selection when I sketch in photoshop is not very exciting, sad to say. But here it is!
So! If you’ve got a tablet (which nowadays you can find some good ones for cheap, so get on it fellow arteests), in my brush window I select transfer (little halfway down), and in the top control select ‘Pen Pressure!’ that leaves you with that beautiful natural looking opacity change as you move your brush across the canvas you’re doodlin’ on. :) Looks purty.
After you’ve selected pen pressure, PLAY AROUND with the ‘Minimum’ slider. At 0% the opacity will change the most. Adjust
The other thing on the left hand side of the brush window that I keep on is the Shape Dynamics.
Again, make that top Control drop down menu “Pen Pressure”
and then play around with the Minimum Diameter! at 0% (if your pen pressure is on) it will have the widest range of size fluctuation. Rather beautiful stuff comes out when you play around with these settings, my darlings -
so have fun with it!!!
If I ever need solid lines for an outline or something, I turn OFF ‘Transfer’, and that leaves the opacity at 100% (unless you actually change the brushes opacity to a lower setting)
Other settings to play with would be in your tablet’s sensitivity settings in the program that comes with said tablet. Take the time to get to know your junk! In all the meanings of that sentence.
When I’m doodling on a single layer the first step in a drawing I do is to select a very very light gray and rough out the pose (a gesture drawing of sorts!) and then go back in with a darker grey (gray?? grey looks better to me) and put in more finer details, then go back in with an even darker grey if necessary to add emphasis or more finer details. Build up build up build up!
Of course everyone’s process is different, go with what feels good to you! :)
Thanks for the question!
PS::::: IMPORTANT:::: When you’re setting things in the brush window as shown in the picture above – do you see those little locks on the left hand side?! Lock them. DO EET. It will save you at least 15 seconds of being annoyed. :D Totally worth it…
