Anyways really better get back to that video stuff. I'm moving soon so I've given myself some 10 days to finish this shit so in any case you'll see the two parter video within 10 days.
And to explain the recent surge of posts is that I've been fucking myself over with shitty line tool I made (for years, even), and just finally realized that after purchasing a Surface 3 and fiddled around with Sketchbook Pro.
So it turns out line tapering (or brush size with pressure sensitivity) lends itself to further requirement for additional fixes and edits as well as not scaling well with larger or smaller resolution canvases. Just simple size 5 round brush with no pressure sensitivity on both opacity and size would have been perfect, but then the need for tweaking brush sets got the better of me. Also not to mention enlarging the brush doesn't give it a fuzzying effect like the former line tool, which is much easier for quick edits.
But all that isn't necessarily for better quality art, but for smoother and more streamlined drawing experience. It just made drawing interesting again and that was enough for me.
Anyways for Surface 3 I'm gonna have to use it a bit more to really know if it's viable but for now it's an interesting device. I'll have to load up Photoshop on it and see how it fares. I might do a review on it later down the line as a blog post.
Oh and I'll be pretty much off for the entirety of February and March. But then I have a portable drawing device so I might still be uploading. But in any case I'm gonna get the vid out before Feb so hopefully people will watch that meanwhile instead of wondering where I went.
I hesitated on giving it a serious time but anyways. I do like the black & white version better though. But the fault lies with the painting method. Doing B&W first has its benefits but the detail is lost in transition to color. If you want your color to preserve the brush details, it's far better for you to jump right into coloring after the base sketch. Rendered greyscale can be more trouble than it is worth in transition to color. But then I'm a sucker for painting B&W.
Like everything I do it's taking a bit of time. It's gonna be about two 1 hour (or 40 minutes if I speak really fast) tuts to get things started so it's heck a lot to write and narrate. Fortunately the writing part of the first part is finished and being narrated. After that will be some drawing and video editing. And of course I'll have to do the same process for the second part before I can upload them both.
Anyways it's coming when it is. Hopefully it'll have all the juicy stuff you guys been wishing for. Whatever left out will be for later videos, which will be much shorter and to the point - as the first two videos will cover the most basic stuff so I won't need to fill you in or get sidetracked.
I haven't been drawing much since I started the writing process. My brain practically works on a single thread so no multitasking for me. Not that it's efficient either. Get a writer's block? Play vidya for rest of the day. So pretty much I'm working when I literally feel like working. It's habit forming and not a good one either. Well, anyways.
And don't watch Taken 3. Masturbating to a picture of Hulk Hogan in a rundown alley right next to a dumpster where they throw out used heroin needles is a much better alternative. At least one of them won't ruin your week.
I think I'm gonna draw something later tonight for quick upload. No, not Hulk Hogan.
