What program do you use and what brushes do you use for coloring and such??
I use Painttool sai. My brushes change all the time because I have commitment issues u - u.
These are the ones I currently use
^This one right here is my sketching tool (that I dont use too much anymore, but I still come back to sometimes. recently I’ve been using the marker tool to sketch - with any settings, it doesnt really matter)
When I do my line arts I’m not too picky. My line arts are generally really shitty and rushed because I just end up painting over them when I’m doing my clean up so I don’t worry too much. Same thing with colouring. Whatever gets the colours in the shape I dont really care too much about that. (some times I don’t even use a line art and just go straight to colouring and whatnot cause I’m lazy)
^For my shading I just use the marker tool with more or less these settings. I change them based on how dark I want a certain area, but this is the basic settings for that brush. after I finish blocking in where I want to look shady I go over with reverse opacity to soften the edges.
^^^Finally my most important and loved brush that Is really just the brush tool with the blending and persistence all the way up. When I finish colouring/shading I combine them all into one layer and use it to paint over my lines and fix proportions and all that garbage. Basically my art would look like shit without it.
(hope this helped. After I get moved into my new house and get my drawing space all fixed up, I’m going to try doing live streams and I can maybe explain my process better)
