So a few of you have been inspired to try Sketchbook Pro out after watching me use it in my recent streams on BlogTV. Some of ya'll wanted to know my ink brush settings. Not that it really matters, because the way these settings are may or may not work for you, as we all draw differently.
I line with etched strokes, while someone else may just do one full sweep. Just a lil' disclaimer there. So don't go off feeling like you're crazy and can't pull off the linework like I can. You probably simply just can't.
a while back while practicing, but I now decided to shed some insight on the brush i use for drawing and sketching digitally.THINGS TO NOTE:
For sketches, I simply adjust my spacing a bit higher to give that digital sketch "look". Where as when I'm doing lineart, I work with less spacing so my strokes are more rich.
When doing sketches, I pick a gray color. Please remember that if you want to emulate this, picking straight black won't give that "sketchy" look. On the upside though, if you do sketch with a straight black color, it will give your work a "finished lineart" look.
Remember to adjust the size accordingly. Changing the size quickly in the brush changer WILL NOT affect any of your brush settings other than the size. So if you need heavier lines, feel free to just change the size. Or you can be like me and just etch the weight in.
You can click DOWNLOAD or
and see the actual ink strokes, as you can see it really isn't all that perfect and neat. When you're going for the intended finished look, you'll learn you don't have to be all detailed on certain areas when up close.
Also, that Chun Li isn't HIGH Hi-Rez, but it's big enough for the color-heads to attempt to color. Feel free. ^___^
Will be posting another tip thingo in a few about posing and using shapes.
