Hey @Stan Prokopenko Is there any chance you could do a short intro to setting up digital brushes for sketching? General opinions are mixed on what kind of brush beginners should use when learning digital art and I'm having a hard time finding one that feels right. I know the brush itself doesn't matter in the big picture, but I am just a bit afraid of getting bad habits from using the wrong one. A few tips on things like what should be pressure controlled, what size/opacity should a brush be, etc., would help a lot. I randomly realized just now, that even though we got a great introduction to traditional tools, you didn't talk about digital ones much.
Hey, everyone! I hope you've all had a fantastic start to the new year and are excited to dig into the next segment of this course. I wanted to give a quick update on our plans for this year as there's been a slight change to our production schedule. I've accepted a new job on Hearthstone which is very exciting but also means I have to move across the entire country, which has been consuming every waking moment of the past month or so. As such, there will be a bit of a delay in the release of the next episodes until I can get settled into my new place and re-establish my recording setup. We have a LOT of great content coming for the course this year that I'm super excited to share, and I want to be sure I give it 110% effort rather than squeezing it in between a million other things. I do apologize for the delay, but I can promise the next section is gonna be awesome and well worth the wait. Thank you so much for your patience, and I can't wait to continue painting with you in 2023! <3
Asked for help
I had some fun but at some point but I just hate painting backgrounds, man. Well, to be more precise, I feel so clueless as to how to make a "nice" background (and/or props) that I get demoralised to the extent that eventually I felt like I was "rolling through punches" to move forward and "finish" the piece. I don't want to "not do it" because I know that I want my finished artwork to have (even simple) clean backgrounds, but I clearly feel like I lack some knowledge or something. Anyways 'nuff whining (for now) Thanks for the lesson 🙂
Holy crap I am in awe!! I've been wondering forever how illustrators make those painting look so "professional" and nice, and these are like the golden nuggets of knowledge explained in a nice and clear way. I'm getting excited, Imma try all these things as soon as I can. Thanks Jon! :D
