Ambivorous, very nice studies. Are you working at a larger resolution and scaling down? If not I would recommend it. I only ask because your images are rather blurry, and they could benefit from hard edged brushes or working on the edges of forms more precisely, zoomed in with a smaller brush.

I think your values are super solid - next up is mark making. The challenge in traditional can sometimes be preserving stroke economy while hitting the right values. Luckily in digital you can rework it as much as you want without destroying the physical canvas or changing the texture of the paint terribly.

Thanks! ^^

So at present I don't even use the zoom button. I used to zoom out when I first started which helped to see glaring issues, and zoom in when something needed more attention, but these days I just do everything at the same zoom. I definitely realise that zooming in and/or using a smaller brush would make my drawings look much more realistic, but each time I half my brush size I double the time taken to do the piece, so I'll have to figure out a way to keep my time down, but spend the right time in the right places with a smaller brush.
I've never changed the hardness of my brush though, that should be a thing I investigate.

Actually, I have literally NO IDEA what the process anyone else follows when drawing. What do you guys do?


Yeah I can definitely notice the impact my value studies have had on my ability to recognise and replicate value. Feels good!
So what's mark making then, and how to I practice it? And stroke economy? And all those other words that make no sense to me?  :-X


Didn't get time to art this past weekend sadly, not because I was busy, but because a) I forgot my tablet at home, and b) I have the flu. :(





Some experimenting. More of a "look at an object and then try to draw that object" approach to give the piece a more unique feel rather than going for photo realism.

@Ambivorous: I don't zoom in either, I work at 50 - 66 % zoom

@wolf: Glad I'm not the only one that isn't zooming. ;D And what kind of brush do you use with what settings?


I made a rhino as a pixel practice.

Thanks yaomon, that's the whole reason I'm doing all these studies - to get better at my clusters. ;D
