mulderstop asked: Hey, I was just wondering how you draw your pictures? Do you do it all online, or do you draw it and then scan it onto your computer? I've been thinking about doing drawings for tumblr and I just wanted some advice if thats cool. Btw I love your x files drawings.
Thank you! And I do both. If I’m doing a bust painting or something then I do it all digitally but for more fully rendered characters I usually just do the lines in pencil/brush pen first then scan it in. It just comes down to what you feel like doing or what you think will look best for that particular work.
Examples of work that are 100% sketched digitally:
05 - no sketch for this one, just used a mouse + lasso tool to make shapes
and work that was done using a mechanical pencil or pen for the lines:
01 - mechanical pencil
02 - brush pen
03 - brush pen
04 - mechanical pencil
05 - brush pen but most of the lines erased for a lineless look
It really doesn’t matter which you do, it’s mostly down to comfort level but I think it’s better to do both so they get equal practice.
