I am in the process of putting together my first personal artbook as well as a Pepper statue (finally!) for a Kictstarter campaign scheduled 2nd half of this year. I am definitely looking forward to it and I would love to keep all of you updated with this exciting journey of mine. More details will be revealed in the near future. You can follow the updates on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/Stanleyartger…
Meanwhile, let's have some fun together shall we? Here is the linework of my artbook cover for you to color if you are up for the challenge. This is actually the first time I let others color my lines before I do, so don't miss this! My coloring stream will be on next Monday 9pm Singapore time (GMT+8). Please attach your completed art to the comment thread below or on my FB page thread.
I think that it is better late than never. I would like to thank you for being you inspire millions of people to work harder on himself and develop their talent. also want to offer you, my version painting Pepper, I hope you like it, I tried very hard to match a level of your wonderful sketch, I hope I got not so bad. You - the best! PS sorry for my English, I use Google translator, I hope it is correct to will inform you meaning of my words
www.corel.com/img/content/comm… Found a Corel Tutorial that definitely helps out a lot, I'll be reading up on these a lot on my phone gonna download all of them and study on the road. Should definitely help my skills and learn somethings I didn't know entirely or about the program in general.
They have more at their site if you want some help learning the basics and learning how to do things like inking (lineart).
I know you probably won't answer this because you get a million comments per day lol, but what exactly do you use to get your lines? Is it just a pencil brush in painter? Or is it just pencil on paper? Because when I draw on paper and scan it NEVER comes out this clean no matter how crisp it may look on paper :/
the general process is to sketch, then go over the correct markings in pen, rub out any pencil and then scan in and erase any marks still left digitally. Alternatively the artist could be using a tablet to create it.
I don't know if I'm late in answering this but, generally you learn all these things through practice and observation. Years and years of doing linearts will help you perfect your linearting style but you have to be patient with it! Experiment with different brushes and sizes, try lots of different medias in helping you get that desired dynamic.
