@BichonBistro If you have clip studio it is under "tool property", there is a stabilization bar, there is only 5 settings.
In Photoshop CC (not sure about other versions) it is under "smoothing" which is to the right of opacity and flow in the top bar. This setting goes by a percentage slider, from 0 - 100% and has much more finite control.
If you have a wacom, (maybe some other tablets have this option too?) adjusting the tip sensitivity can help too. I shake, so if the tip is super sensitive, it will show every jiggle, and line thick ess will jump around. Firm up the tip, and you have more control/forgiveness. When I color, I usually soften the tip pressure. So I keep then wacom preference panel open.
Can't really stabilize with vector, but it's nice that nodes are editable, can adjust a line with the handles. I knew a guy that would just quickly and sloppily lay out lines, then just go back and adjust each node to what he wanted.
@kevin-longueil I'm glad my feedback helped in some way Kevin. I can see what you mean about the wizard wearing something that would detract from looking at her/his face. When I paint faces I usually spend the most amount of time and detailing around the eyes so people will look mostly in that direction, so I can understand where you are coming from. I would second what @smceccarelli said about a dash of color, even if it was only the heart that was colored (and maybe some of the color spreads from that heart onto the edges of her clothing), but either way great job and i'll look forward to seeing your next piece!
@lisa-ngan hello, thank you for your comments. You are right about characters missing some characteristics. Thanks for comment about paper effect:-) I've done smth like for the first time and only on my husband's request... It's really time consuming and I am very impatient
@djlambson Nice! It's been a while since I have been there, but I have also been to Fort St John as well. When I was a kid, I think that I visited every city in B.C., as we always did a lot of road trips. I do miss the mountains and the coast now that we're in Alberta. There is nothing quite like a B.C. forest!
@sean-p-guzman Thanks Sean, good suggestions I appreciate you all taking the time to reply. I also like Jason's example of the small cloud. I'll post up the final when I have incorporated those changes. I agree with everyone's suggestions. Just need to get those clouds feeling right.
Wow, thank you for the input! I think I'm getting somewhere now. I started this in November and I've been stuck fussing with it off and on. Probably should have given more about the character. Funny thing is @smceccarelli she's actually undead, but the eyes were bothering me and you figured it out. She was kidnapped as a child by a cannibalistic lord but escaped and now she's on a mission to kill him. Her entire storyline is sad and nothing ends well for her.
Gonna keep working on it. Does the side that's farther away seem right? I flipped the canvas and nothing is jumping out...
Well, I don't know about procreate, but in a program like Photoshop you can adjust the opacity or flow, and how much texture is coming through on the brush. If you feel the canvas texture is too similar across the entire picture, you could adjust it to have more in certain areas than others.
@Lee-White Loving the Dream portfolio class. I've been at this since SVS started but, you know sometimes life gets in the way. I've had to take a few breaks from illustrating. I'm back in full force now and starting with your class. The first image is my Fav. artist. Charles Santoso, Renata Liwska, Corey Godbey, Gris Grimly, Brian Ajhar are my favorite's of all but I love everyone on my list. They all have that sketch quality to their work. You can almost see how they started and finished at the same time.
The second image is my work. I need to work on my values and bringing more life to my images. I would really like to start focusing more on color. I have zero painting skills so I'm not sure if I should go digital or traditional with adding color. I'm leaning toward traditional. Next is a master study but I like them all so much it's hard to choose.
I'll keep posting and we'll see what happens!
Hi, I like the drawing in the sense that you have nice line work and shapes but from a composition standpoint I'm not sure what the story is because the girl seems to just be standing there looking into the sky. Is the monster dangerous? If yes then the sheep would be very noisy and active and that would make the girl take notice. Right now it looks like they are waiting for something to happen but I would consider drawing the moment when something is happening
Orgosmhurs are strange beings that resides on the peaks of the Sea if Cains many hills. Each hill a grave to some ancient king or warrior of valor might now be more than a place for ghouls and ghasts, but a home to this wanderers from the different plane, sitting unmoved upon the hilltop, strange, sweet scented mist surrounding them, as well as a curious sensation of a distant whispering. Despite their grotesque forms, they seem lulled and calm, never harassing the brave adventurers who dare to cross the vast graveyard... That is, until some misbegotten soul raise a weapon against it. It might be true, it might be not, for if anyone indeed tried to attack the otherworldly beings, none claimed it to be so. Perhaps because no one survived such an attempt. Or perhaps no one tried. Yet.
