need some feedback on these lil piggies, they look a bit weird to me and i cant figure out why.
User avatar #56183 to #56181 - likelike (06/02/2014) [-]
I'm not an expert in pigs, or drawing but to me the neck regions are out of sorts. Although they fit with the flow of the body, the neck/chin area isn't really defined.

just my thoughts

Just discovered that this thing (Sketchbook Pro) is freaking awesome for inking curves. And I just wanted to share that, since I've always hated inking because I mess up curves so often.
User avatar #56177 to #56159 - hsm ONLINE (06/02/2014) [-]
Is there any goddamn way to use sketchbook pro with a mouse? I use photoshop and SAI and they work great with a mouse.
User avatar #56211 to #56177 - shamrockd (06/02/2014) [-]
I haven't tried myself, but I guess you could just draw lines and circles and stuff.... if you're asking if it's POSSIBLE to use a mouse, absolutely. But if it's easy? I highly doubt it.
User avatar #56160 to #56159 - ibinoth (06/02/2014) [-]
o.o Might have to look into that. I've been using FireAlpaca for pretty much everything in the world up 'til now, and it's pretty damn lightweight.
User avatar #56161 to #56160 - shamrockd (06/02/2014) [-]
Sketchbook pro is a great program-a bit costly ($60), but in my opinion well worth it. If you like you can download the express version for free here apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/sketchbook-express/95d1acfb-4d64-487a-9e20-8d6f6d41cb54 , or on the app store if you're using a mac. It's the one tool in specific that's helping me with inking; it sort of drags the ink an inch or so behind the tip of the pen. Which sounds weird but it's great for making smooth curves. Highly recommend it.
User avatar #56162 to #56161 - ibinoth (06/02/2014) [-]
Thanks! I'll give it a whirl =]
User avatar #56163 to #56162 - shamrockd (06/02/2014) [-]
Enjoy it dude. the Express version has pretty much everything you need anyway; there's some stuff it won't let you do (import images, have more or less than five layers, access to the full Copic Marker library) that are included in the full version, but it's got all the essentials.

Guys, I'm looking to buy some new equipment for some digital art sometime this summer, and I was wondering if any of you had any recommendations. I think the Intuos Pro looks pretty legit, but what do you guys like to use? drawing tablets (the kind you connect to a computer), non-drawings tablets that you use for drawing anyway (like an iPad or something), special styluses, anything. And what kind of software is your favorite for drawing? Talk to me.
User avatar #56149 to #56143 - shamrockd (06/01/2014) [-]
Elaborating on my last question, do any of you prefer drawing on a screen, like on an iPad or a Cyntiq (as if I'd have enough money to get one of those) to drawing on a tablet connected to your computer? And what programs are specifically good for inking?
User avatar #56147 to #56143 - cthumoo (06/01/2014) [-]
I use an intuos 5 medium, the pressure's pretty good, the sensitivity I had to get used to after using a huge tablet before it. I actually use Flash for drawing, but SAI is probably the best for linework (I'm all about vector's and just prefer the lines on Flash). Although there are probably some great brushes on Photoshop too.
User avatar #56150 to #56147 - shamrockd (06/01/2014) [-]
I like doing a lot of sketching and inking, so i'm not overly concerned with a variety of brushes. I'm told Sai is good so I might download that. Can you tell me more about why you prefer Flash and vectors over other programs and... non-vectors, I guess? Just trying to get as much insight as I can.
User avatar #56153 to #56150 - cthumoo (06/01/2014) [-]
It's not the best for sketching I'd say though, pen pressure doesn't affect the opacity of the brushes in Flash, only the size (as opposed to Photoshop and SAI).
User avatar #56152 to #56150 - cthumoo (06/01/2014) [-]
I like vectors 'cause I can zoom in as far as I want without any blur (this can be avoided, to an extent, by increasing resolution in other programs though). Most of my favourite digital artists use Flash so I have a bias for the way their work looks, which is probably why I prefer the brush; it's incredibly crisp too. Example of something done in Flash by someone I like the art of: twitter.com/Gonzossm/status/428929954537947136/photo/1

Oh and maybe I've just not explored the other programs enough, but Flash is the only one I've found where I could just use a fill tool to colour in a drawn area instead of selecting an area to paint.
User avatar #56146 to #56143 - nocturnalemission (06/01/2014) [-]
If you're a beginner don't spend more than $100 on a tablet.
I use Sketchbook Pro/Autodesk, but it's like $30. There's a free trial, but you're probably better off downloading something like Sai.
If you have a tablet like an Ipad or Kindle you can get Autodesk on it for $5 and it's pretty decent, but no pressure sensitivity.
User avatar #56148 to #56146 - shamrockd (06/01/2014) [-]
I've already got a $100 Bamboo Inspire (I think that's the one) but I've had it for a while and I thought I should upgrade soon. I've been considering buying an iPad for a while, and the fact that I can get sketchbook Ink (also autodesk) for iPad is appealing. There's a new Intuos creative stylus for the iPad too, that'll have pressure sensitivity and stuff. But all that is, of course, an expensive combination. Would you recommend I just stick with what I have?
User avatar #56156 to #56148 - yuvesh (06/01/2014) [-]
if its for drawing i dont recommend an ipad
they are great machines, but for art there are a lot better.

the surface pro is supposed to be good (art wise)
wacom released a android tablet with there tech in it, when you plug it into a pc it can be used like a normal graphics tablet
User avatar #56151 to #56148 - nocturnalemission (06/01/2014) [-]
Yeah you're better off, for whatever reason you happen to get an Ipad/stylus or come across some money you don't mind wasting then go nuts.
In the end it's just a preference.
I even went back to paper for now since digital was kinda boring me.
User avatar #56144 to #56143 - legendaryhero (06/01/2014) [-]
Yeah, don't use a non-drawing tablet for drawing. It's not made for that and it probably doesn't have pressure sensitivity.
I have a wacom intuos 5 and it's alright. But eh, it's expensive, get something cheaper that would do just fine.
Software: I use paint tool sai for quicker drawings but I suggest you just try to figure out Photoshop. Just because you can do more with Photoshop. You will get used to it soon enough.
User avatar #56145 to #56144 - shamrockd (06/01/2014) [-]
Photoshop seems to be the go-to for drawing, and a lot of people use it. But when i tried it, I didn't like it that much. of course that might be because I didn't know how to use it. Is it really worth learning to use?

Hey D&A board, it's been a looooong time since I've come here...
I've got a bit of a sad story/question;
I've been wanting to get back into drawing, but I can't draw for shit since the accident(s). Pic related, it's my most current attempt at drawing
TL-DR; Breaking hands/fingers is not the way to better one's artistic skill.
Wat do?
User avatar #56136 to #56133 - pickaxe (06/01/2014) [-]
If your fingers healed a bit weird,you're probably gonna' hold your pen differently.You're not yet used to that feeling,but you still have the technical knowledge,so it should be a tad easier than the first time.
Draw a lot,write a lot,get used to the way your hand does stuff now.
Also,even if your skill may have dropped,there are few things an eraser and a good portion of patience can't fix.
User avatar #56134 to #56133 - yuvesh (06/01/2014) [-]
relearn to draw from scratch
you probably hold your pen/stylus different now
start from the beginning and work your way up

also use references

Arceus or the background thing?
I can see the resemblance though, at least in the colour scheme.
But I bet Arceus doesn't have dem idle animations.
User avatar #56123 to #56122 - shamrockd (06/01/2014) [-]
Don't even know what this is from, so I'll just agree with you.

It's from Warframe. But that doesn't matter.
What matters is the booty.

#56126 to #56125 - adunsaveme (06/01/2014) [-]
