how do you tablet?

Post by spinnythings on Wed Apr 23, 2014 12:41 pm

i recently bought a tablet with christmas money, but i haven't really been able to figure out how to use it properly.

so what im trying to ask is, do those of you draw on tablets regularly have any advice for me? i've been drawing pencil and paper for two years and would like to get into digital art. what programs do you recommend? any technique to it?

I was gonna get SAI but its fifty bucks and I didn't wanna pirate it so I tried other free software but it didn't work out

I'll see what I can do about getting SAI I don't want my tablet to collect dust like it has been

The tablet I have came with some tools and the one I'm using is Clip Studio Paint. I don't have any experience with any other programs so I apologize, I can't help give you other options. I tried using GIMP with it but I never bothered playing around with the pen settings so it was horrible, but maybe you can go around to make it work.


Because it's a machine it's more precise and the feel is different. I've only used my tablet a couple of times so far in the 6 months that I've owned it, so I can't really give you any tips other than to practice.

The OT ones I did from a couple of days ago. The rest around the time I got the tablet which was October/November of last year.

I can't do mouse art. It amazes me when I see people do it well.

i've been drawing some diagrams using my mouse and the trick is to hold that son of a bitch hard like you're trying to squeeze water out of a stone. also use line tools more than any amount of brush

I sketch to practice what I'm currently studying. Because I procrastinate, I've been stuck on the human head and I'm still far from getting it right. My drawings are far from good but I like to believe that they're decent enough to look at.

For some reason, I can't stand e-books when it comes to drawing. If I could find a copy of the books I use in a bookstore, I'd probably make more progress. I'd like to think that but that's not helping me escape procrastination.

Yeah.

It would be easier for me to understand the anatomy from someone who draws rather than a scientist, but like I said, still stuck on the head and still have not grasped it because I procrastinate.

alright, so ive run into another obstacle. i dont know how to draw "sketch lines". like, i think you sketch something then go over it later on a higher layer to make it look better but im not quite sure how that process goes. what kind of brush should i use?

don't just draw one long line just draw little lines


than when you feel like you got the idea of what you want down you make a new layer and draw the real lines on

i have a slightly different method on paper of drawing basic shapes first then drawing the details but i know about and have used the "lots of lines" method like sometimes ive carved a head shape out of a billion lines around it
