haha thank you very much! great avatar btw!!^^ hm, my advice: when you are drawing on paper, you should draw your design very lightly with pencil and define the form and then go over it again, in photoshop you can draw just on an extra layer and put it on 20% afterwards, and then go over it. try to get a shape/stroke in once. and if you dont get the line in the way you like it, just press ctrl+z and give it another try^^. try to evade erasing but draw over (needs a lot of practice, but not that much for you because I have seen your art and there is some good stuff already)... and practice drawing straight lines and ellipses and circles (some hundred pages^^).. I know these sketchbookpages are not going to look very fancy but it helps a lot^^. I am also going to submit a guidline you can use lineweight soon(if I dont forget, Ill send you the link), but you always should find your own ways how you use your lines to get your own styl . best way to practice in my opinion is to use ballpoints, because they force to make decisions. ok, best dishes and wishes, G
Thank you for the great advice. For me, the greatest struggle is the transition from paper to digital. I can draw clean and strong lines on paper with pencils and ink, but when it comes to Photoshop, I mess it all up. Also, line drawing in Photoshop takes much more time for me, so I'm searching for a new way to do it. If nothing works, then I guess patience is golden . Thank you again. I'm looking forward to your guidelines. I'm keeping you on . Best regards, D.
I really have been thinking for a while about what you said, and yes: it is the same with me. even I got a better tablet now my lines are still better with ballpen on paper (even if I cannot transform, flip or draw over and over again..). I dont know why this is, but I hope you are right and we just need more patience^^.
I just posted that lines-guide (dont know if this is the best description... it is more ment to be an inspiration than a guideline^^). see you around and have fun!
