My new stylus came!!! Of course I had to test it out with the bae. The lines are really sloppy cuz it’s gonna take a while to get used to (I have to hold it much differently than my Wacom tablet pen) but I think I’ll get it.
Till I do get it tho Requests are open! BNHA only please.
Got my new Intuos Pro, and I’m going to amuse myself by posting some “before and after” scribbles.
Above: some very really attempts to get clean unwavering strokes on the first pass, using the old Bamboo. Most of the long strokes for the feathers didn’t always land where I had wanted them too, or they sort of wobbled at some point. Lots and lots of me grumbling and hitting ctrl z. I hid the sketch lines for clarity, you can guess at how much worse they were. Yikes.
Above: Feldspar modeling the cleaner flowing lines I’ve been getting with the new Intuos. I did not use a sketch layer for this one! We’ll see how it holds up drawing long lines for wings, etc. but already I haven’t noticed that infamous “Shoestring Stroke” I was getting with the Bamboo. *shudder*
I don’t think this tablet is a cure-all, but it should help me ease back into things. I don’t need digital art to be any more difficult than it is.
all the kind people messaging me and saying so much kind stuff to
Bani… thank you so much… (T//ω//T) Bani is very happy and red in
the face… I know you want to know how I do these gifs… But I’m
really not great at explaining things… I hope I can at least show
you some steps… I draw everything in Paint Tool SAI and I use a
small Wacom pen tablet for drawing… I only use the default brushes
that are in the program… also, I never went to an art school or had
any lessons for this… so I really can’t tell if my method is
efficient, since it is self-taught (^q^||)
I do a weird looking sketch ( O ∀ O||||||)
I do a less weird looking sketch…
basically just redraw every frame again, and also change some things
that should moving…
save all the images to a folder and open them in Windows Photo
Viewer… I press the next button to see it move and to what I need
to change… in the end, I’ll have more frames because I use some
drawings more than once in the animation…
I put the images into Photoshop and save as a gif there…
use After Effects for a glow effect, because I can
then I need hours to compress the gif and lower the frames to 2mb, so
that tumblr will allow it ლ(ಠ益ಠლ
I’ve been wanting to do this for so
long hehe and I’m so happy I finally got myself to start drawing
yesterday! :D Ever since I was a kid, I always liked to imagine tiny
people living in our garden/mini-forest-like backyard. :3 Around two
years ago, I started taking pictures of little corners of our garden
with plans of drawing little people in them!
I feel so relaxed whenever I look at these, huhu ;3; I hope you do too! ^ - ^
might print these out as postcards, or even a 2016 calendar if I can
make more (I definitely want to make more, haha) :D (So please, please
do not print out or reproduce T_T)
Photos taken by me using a
Pentax camera, drawings drawn by me using Paint Tool SAI and a borrowed
Wacom pen tablet (my old one broke T__T).
