Izzy and Kabuterimon - no colours by Shmuggly Izzy and Kabuterimon - no colours by Shmuggly
So Izzy and Kabuterimon stopped by at the ice cream stand in the middle of the desert. What? Is there a better place to sell ice cream? Just think of it, you could jack up the prices. Anyway...

Honestly guys, this is my very first time trying to use the pressure-sensitive brush tool to draw anything. It was really weird and tricky. I really did try to make the lines thicker and thinner in strategic places, but it might not show haha. My friend Brian kept asking me to use the brush tool to draw stuff, as opposed to the line tool I usually use in Adobe Flash. Do you like this? It looks cool and stylized, but it's not entirely intentional. That's just the brush tool going crazy. I think I'm gonna try to keep doing this, practice will help me to use it properly. Also, being the first time using this tool, it took me far longer to draw this than if I would have with lines :I

So yeah, Lines vs Brushes:

- you can select lines and change the line width whenever you want
- a line will always be the same width
- if you draw a line over another one, you can select the part that crosses over, select it, and delete it (instead of using the eraser tool)
- if you wanna make a straight line, you are able to cheat and simply hold down shift and make one
- but if you wanna resize a picture, you also have to go and select the lines and change their line width (a pain)

- they automatically make wobbly lines smoother and straighter
- they're stylish
- you can transition from a thick line to a thinner one smoothly
- but the tool seems to have a life of its own sometimes, and goes wonky at random

A boy and his giant beetle monster.
Also, ice cream!
Great job making sense of Kabuterimon's mouth. Thing's a bit of a nightmare to conceptualize actually moving, or eating, or talking, I'd imagine.

Heh, nice. Not enough Kabuterimon fanart around. That's a big ice cream cone... Then again, you can't exactly say no to a giant beetle.

I think in the end you'll only really get better with using the brush and making lines yourself, the linetool traps you in some way, I used to use it too but after some practise your work will get a lot cleaner and more fluent.
