#WacomWed: 4 “Nosferatu” Adobe Illustrator CC Dynamic Sketch Tool

Wacom Wednesday in a whole new way! I got dirty with Illustrator =D

So I had a hectic day and didn’t get to start my project until about 23:00. I know a lot of designers doing weekly projects and I know a few of them would have just skipped it. I couldn’t do that because of the rest of the designers that actually follow through =D Plus for the students I tutor =D

I started at 23:00 and I usually just go for about an hour or so. This time I went on until about 2:30 the following day. I’m sure you’re wondering what took me so long but I was trying out a bunch of different techniques before running with it and I just don’t do this enough. Again, I learned a lot during this project.

So I learned how to get a better sketch feel by using one of the chalk brushes as I created my Illustration. Each week I feel my tablet, Grip Pen, and hand working together better. All I’m doing is setting aside an hour or so a week to “Play” with the tablet.

As you can see in the image above, I got real dirty with it =D The last couple of WacomWED’s have very few paths and anchor points. This time I kinda scribbled in my strokes, getting lost in it while listening to some music. I watched the movie before doing this so I wanted to get the color right because it’s so important to the film. This is a screen shot of my favorite part.

The file ended up being pretty big compared to the others. Nosferatu was 94mb and the “Witch” was just over 1mb =D


If you purchased a Wacom Tablet but you just have it sitting in the closet, PLEASE! Bust. It. OUT! I let mine just sit there for a long time before I got back into it. With this weekly project, I’m starting to have a lot of fun with my tablet. It is actually starting to feel like I’m just drawing away in my notebook from back in the day =D
