I’m having fun watching old shows that I used to like to watch as a kid. Lily Munster was a BIG deal to me back in the day =D Huge crush!
Whenever I go into one of these vector traces, I get a bit intimidated mostly because I’m a fan. Or maybe it’s because it’s such a recognizable person. Either way, each week it get’s a little bit easier. The more I practice, the more comfortable I get with using the tools and hardware.
This week I felt like I was more focused on the set-up rather than the actual drawing. People often ask me “Which tool should I use to draw?” The answer, in my opinion, is always “It depends on the project.” I can’t tell you that the Blob Brush is better than the Art Brush or that DynamicSketch is the best of all. I think it really depends on the look you’re going for and what you are used to using. I don’t think a pencil is better than water color or oils. Each medium is going to give you a different look and that’s good =)
So, how to decide? I don’t know =D What’s working for me is this project. I just keep drawing in different styles and I learn a lot from each session. Every couple of weeks I try to do something different. If you look at #WacomWED as a whole, you’ll see some doodles, sketches, and cleaner illustrations. I’m hoping by trying out different tools and techniques, I’ll learn more techniques. I recently suggested, to my friends, to draw the same subject with all the different tools available in Adobe Illustrator. It’s the same practice they make you do in a Life Drawing class. It’s working out pretty good for me but I got a long way to go.
I used the Dynamic Sketch Tool by Astute Graphics
