I want to tell you how I did my art until now and how I will try to change my workflow in the future. I really want to share this with you, because it can happen that my next drawings have a slightly lesser quality on the line-art. I want you to know why this will happen and why my lines in my latest works look really clean.
How I did an Image in the past
My very first Images were Traditional-Drawings (with minor digital edits) only. Like this one
But then ( thanks to SpookyKinkyGhost
who showed that technique to me), I started to using "Vector-Lines" to "redraw" or better "reclick" my Traditional sketches. I usually used the Vector-Lines to fix minor misstakes, I've made on the Traditional drawings and also to add some more details. The Vector-Lines were placed via the mouse, so I had not to use the Tablet here
The downside is, this step takes an huge amount of time =/
The Vector-Lines also gave me an easy option to add color to areas, the base color was usually done in 5 - 15min or less (with the wand and bucket)
I usually just used the Tablet to shade my drawings, which took me some time, but helped me to improve a lot with using the Tablet and coloring
Example how an image was finalized:
How I plan to do images in the Future
I'm tired of clicking after all my sketch lines, so I really want to learn how to draw lines on my Tablet. But thats not as easy as I thought. While I have no problems to draw a simple head on paper for example, on a Tablet it looks really bad (and feels bad).
As people stated, it will maybe because of the lack of practice, but drawing/practicing is not fun with having some bad results. So I made a plan.
I will still do my sketches Traditionally, but instead of using the clicking vector lines for the lineart, I will practice to redraw my sketch lines with the Tablet! It may be that I have not so super clean lines like before
, but it will really helps me to improve... Once I'm good enought to draw my sketch lines with the Tablet, I will try to do my sketches on the Tablet as well! Which should save a ton of time in the creation process (Which means more drawings for you from me) x3
I would love to hear critique when I publish new drawings with the Tablet-drawn lines. I really need feedback on them, I will try my best to make them look good
I always have 2 Projects at the same time, usually a Vore-Project and a Non-Vore one. The Non-Vore Projects usually are drawn by me, when I have people around my room, so they don't see my Vore-Art. The other time I do the Vore-Art Project.
I will first draw the (Non-Vore)
Art-Trade for JohnTennantGTS
next to the Vore-Comic which I planned with a loyal Watcher together. It's a really long Vore-Comic with my Angel and his Character. I will explain more about the Comic once I have the first pages done~
After these I will may draw some of my own ideas or do some ideas, which some of you suggested to me^^
Lately I got multiple questions, if I do Commissions. I have to admit, I'm a bit flattered by it^.^
But I just want you to know, I don't do Commission, since I don't want to force myself to draw. For me its just a hobby
The only accepted "Request"-Type in the future will be "Art-Trades". I like these because getting art (or literature) for art in return has more value for me than money
But first I need to focus on the current projects before opening them~
Don't worry, I don't do one, even if I already had PMs were I was asked if I open one. One of my reasons to start drawing GTS-Vore was also the lack of public Content (also in a time were more and more bigger GTS-Vore artists vanish there). I personally was never a fan of Patreon, but its up to every artist to try it, don't get me wrong.
I don't like this system and will not
go this route. I'm okay with everybody who tries it, but I just can't support them financially (due to the reasons above)
I can't tell but I think I will not open public
requests again. It tend to attract people who are not really interested in my stuff, just getting free art. I will choose sometimes people or draw ideas from you (I'm always open for idea, of course, I will credit you if I draw your idea), but no pulic requests anymore.
I think most of the requests I did was for loyal followers, awesome people, just had 1 or 2 of these people who seek for free art. Also some who spmmed me over and over, even if I never agreed to do a request for them^^
I usually love to do requests for people but at some point I like to draw a bit of my own ideas!
Thanks to you all for supporting me so much to improve or just motivating me (by Comments/Faves/PMs) ^.^ I'm glad to have such a nice community around
