How to get started with Digital Art


I started doing web comics about eight years ago, and my style now is almost unrecognizable from what it used to be. I drew with a ballpoint pen on paper, scanned it, and it looked like this. Then I started drawing digitally, and it changed everything.

 So for the shadows, I take a black brush, which Gallardo passe to darken one side of the drawing and highlight the other side in white where the light is hitting the subject. The end result's this lovely drawing of Will drawn in four separate layers. If you're concerned about how drawing on glass might affect you, you can always look intimate screen protectors that will mimic the feeling of drawing on paper. I tried one out from a corporation called Paper Like, and it really helped bring some resistance to drawing on the iPad. So once you've got all of your tools, we're gonna advance to software. On my Mac Book, I like to use software like Adobe Photoshop, but on the iPad, I use Clip Studio Paint because it's almost like a desktop app.

 There are all these other drawing apps on the iPad like Procreate or Adobe Draw, but these apps kind of have a learning curve because you have to learn each app's gesture controls like double-tapping to undo. Suppose you're not happy with any of these apps there always other options. There's software like Astro pad or Duet Display that lets you connect your iPad to a computer so you can use it as a second display. And if you're in the market for a new laptop altogether, there's always two in one device like the Microsoft Surface Pro, so everything's on there. You can use the desktop version of Photoshop, and there's no transferring of files like you would have with an iPad. Since I'm most comfortable with the mac OS interface, using a Wacom tablet makes sense.

 Suppose you're in a position where you're trying to decide what's best for you. Think more about the apps you would like to use and for what purpose. But ultimately, making art may be a personal experience, so fiddle and find your favorite options. Thanks for reading.

Where is a Starfish's Butt?

I read a tweet and it really got me thinking about animals revolting. It's from Lawrence Ward who says, "The population "of Scotland is around 5.25 million and there are million cats in the world so if every cat decided to invade Scotland, each Scot would have tonight off around 114 cats and I don't think they could pull it off." (laughs) I don't think I could fight 114 cats and survive. Have you ever had to tangle with an angry cat that still had its claws? I have. And lemme tell you, gonna need a lot of the foamy liquid that you put on your cuts. Hydrogen peroxide. If cats revolt, much like the population of small wild animals inane area where there's a large domestic cat population, we'd get destroyed. Your cats a murderer. (whimsical music) Hello, and welcome to"Footnotes", the companion show to "Because Science" where I take all of your comments, questions, and corrections and then I bombard you with cats.
