Traditional-styled digital art
« on: August 20, 2009, 02:15:25 pm »
I'm starting to think that its probably easier and cheaper to just make a giant high-res image, and buy one of those tablet things...

Anyways, I was experimenting to try to get pencil-like effects digitally (via a mouse... Yes, painful...)

So I what I'm looking for is more of simply getting that pencil-esq sort of effect from using albedo 4/6/8 black (255 being opaque black). I whipped this up really fast just now.

Yes, I know the proportions/perspective may have some problems (I applaud anyone who can actually make awesome art using only a mouse), but right now, I'm just looking to get some nice pencil effects... (And this is only b/w so far)...
I'll probably do some more experimenting to get darker lines (Without having it get too dark too quickly, which makes for messes)

Really? ^^
I think I might invest getting a tablet then... (probably once black friday rolls around and all those wonderfully cheap electronics are on sale!)

//edit//
further input is still very much welcome however. :3
