Tutorial: Digital Inking by MoonLightSpectre Tutorial: Digital Inking by MoonLightSpectre
Please note that:
- It's not a drawing tutorial, therefore I don't explain how to draw face hair and ect, it's for people who sketch and ink manually and would like to try doing it with a computer.
- It's not for mouse drawing, tablet only, otherwise it's too much of a pain.
- It's not quiet a tutorial..I just though that some tips might be useful if you don't know how to start with CGing something.
- That's the fisrt time I was doing outlines on my computer and not on paper, so don't be too hard with it...

Anyway. I think being able to do the whole of your drawing of the computer might be extreamly useful and interesting, (especially when your scanner is down - like mine) so I wanted to give it a try myself...and when I was done I thought that it didn't turn out that bad and I'd like to share my way of doing it with you :nod:
hopy you find it useful or inspiring at some point^__^

Medium used: photoshop CS and a Trust 400-V2 A5 tablet.
Time taken: one evening + one day. I'm slow :no:
Claimer: the character and artwork belong to the Spectre XD

Great tutorial! Very helpful, this is what I already do, I was hoping there was a less painful way of making clean lines without using the pen tool, but your right I suppose it is worth the time. :)

wow nice one, will try it that way too.
i hate sketching with my tablet, since my hand is quite shaky and if i get to produce a nice line it`s most likely off proportion and doesn`t fit, but since my scanner went to heaven i`ll have to put up with this till i can afford a new one, so this walkthrough might help.

thanks, gonna fav :heart:

Merci beaucoup !

Je n'avait pas vu cette déviation, mais elle est surprenante : je n'avait pas compris que tu faisait tout sur ordinateur. C'est vraiment excellent. Je n'en suis que plus admirative devant tes oeuvres.

Merci encore, donc, et encore bravo pour ta galerie et l'évolution dans tes dessins.

Beh au fait y'en a pas tellement beaucoup que je fais entierement sur ordinateur, d'habitude je fais un croquis papier... en plus cette deviation la est assez vielle, je les fais plus vraiment comme ca. Mais bon ma methode se resumerai en: tu pose ton crayon et tu gribouille jusqu'a ce que tes gribouillages te plaisent XD
merci a toi, pour le compliment et por le watch :hug:

XD man o.O if I had a tablet, I can do the fine line and detials as you did XD! ^^ That tutorial you can do it in old openCanvas (XD if I had a tablet, it'll work XD), openCanvas is like photoshop also XD, except 1 things (few tools, and layers XD), X3 I loved openCanvas XD! It'll do the same if I adjust it the brush ^^;. You can drag the 1st arrow (the top of the 2nd arrow) and drag to left side, then make the brush a bit big by dragging the 2nd arrow, then you hook the tablet, then it'll give the fine detials XD! (If you already had openCanvas, i'm sorry XD)
