Morning Warm Up Drawing

Aaron Paetz gave me some of his brush tools to try on the computer thingy, and this here is the result. Thanks Aaron




It looks pretty good until you click on it. Then it goes to hell.

nah.. i dont think it goes to hell at all. Working digitally isn't nearly the same as working traditionally, but I think you can actually get some pretty good results. It just takes some tweaking of the settings to figure out work best for you.

What helped me the most, was to reduce the sensitivity on my cintiq, it basically acts like a stiffer ink brush. Most natural pressure stays thin and controlled and then i have to push a little harder to get some real line weight. It feels more like a tombow brush pen or pitt brush pen.. instead of a water color brush.

But nothing comes close to drawing with the side of the pencil. That one is still impossible to do on the machine.

I apologize for using your comments page as a means for personal inquiry, but my name is Ernest Kim and am currently an animation student at SAIC. I was wondering if there were any internships available at the studio you work at over the summer, or at least contact information of someone I could be directed to. I really don't care about being paid or college credit, I just really want to make cartoons within a studio.

Again I apologize for asking you in your comments page. Please e-mail me @ boynull@gmail.com or on my blog. Thank you.

Phil:Thanks for to tip. I can use all the good info that I can lay hands on. Yeah The side of the pencil is end all be all.
I know John Buscema used to use one of those flat carpenter's pencil to great result, of course he could have drawn beautifully with a dead baby dipped in hot sauce.

Dave:Thanks, and yes indeed.

Art: Thanks buddy

Kali: Yes a cock.

Pat: No, I never draw me naked, and I hope no ex ever looks that scary.

Ernie: You are very welcome.

And they say redheads aren't good for anything? What do they know?

Awesome drawing. Reminds me of my ex

It IS a shame, but these days no one in the industry seems to recognize good line work, anyway.

But this picture to me, poor brush settings notwithstanding, says a lot about fear.... a naked man running with his cock flapping in the breeze evokes and tippifies abject fear.

You see a naked man running down the street screaming... you run with him! Cuz whatever's chasing him is big, scary, mean, and is probably the reason he's naked in the first place.

I haven't used a Wacom tablet (thinking of it, though), but the standard picture (without clicking on it) looks amazing. That reminds me of one of those dreams after hours on end watching "Tales of Worm Paranoia" by Eddie Fitzgerald over and over again.
