Title: Digital Drawing
Post by: Kathysutterlin on July 17, 2017, 02:19:40 PM
Hi Mysti. I thought I'd start a new thread about digital drawing. I didn't want to fill up your Lets Draw page with my questions. I downloaded the Adobe Photoshop Sketch. They only offered a free one with an in app purchase for storage. I can't find anything to upgrade to the pro or to get the pencils we spoke of. Did I get the correct app?

Hi, Kathy.  I just realized I said the wrong thing.  Mea culpa!  It is autodesk, not adobe.

Here is a screenshot of the program and the in app pro tools.  You will see the subscription in app purchase too, but that is not needed.

This thread is a great idea, btw.

I found you need to share drawings as a .jpg file to get them small enough to fit in the 2MB limit for the Paint Basket gallery.  That will work for both Sketchbook and ProCreate.

The pencils are all in Fine Art brushes.  There is an eraser right above that works similar to the white eraser.

The basic library has the smudge pen.  I also use the cashmere eraser right next to it, which works similar to kneadable eraser in that it can lift some graphite without lifting all of it.

This is awesome, Mysti.  Thanks for the pic of the app  :).  Did you draw those rocks? You are " rocking" this course.. Pun fully intended  ;)

 :yippee: I got the sketchbook! Now to learn how to use it.  :o
Your snapshots helped a lot. I truly feel like a beginner all over again. It's so different manipulating the digital pencils. We're you able to save the eraser on the same drop down palette as your pencils?

Thanks, Kathy!  I wish I could claim those rocks.  That is Nolan's version.  I am tracing those, then drawing my version.

I am glad the pictures helped.  I have not arranged the eraser, it just happened to be right there.  The basic is at the very top, so I just scroll up to it.

I'm sure your rocks will be fabulous too.  :)
I figured out the eraser ✏️. I dragged it to the fine arts tab and dropped it in front of the pencils.  :yippee:

You will get the hang of it quickly.  There are lots of YouTube videos too if you want a tutorial.  I have found this is the first time it feels natural drawing on a tablet.  The tilt effect helps a lot.  It is definitely still different from pencil and paper, but there are a lot of similarities. 

Thanks for the tip on the eraser!  I am learning the programs too and had not tried that.   O0

Let me know how your first sketch goes.   :painting:

 :thankyou: I'm going to go play with it and look for tutorials. I will post after I draw something. Enjoy the rest of your evening  ;)

You girls seem to be knee deep in this digital stuff and I am trying to figure out what the heck you are talking about>

Good luck.  I sounds exciting.  Look forward to see ing what you create.

Lol 😂 Mea.

Yes, the digital drawing is a whole other approach. So much to learn all over again. It would be awesome if Nolan was going to create more classes and added digital tutorials.

Of course, I will be learning this in between pencil ✏️  and colored pencil drawings.   ;)

Mysti, Have you seen the "How to Draw From Imagination" by Monika Zagrobelna? I found it in the sketchbook news.  ;)

Hi, Mea!  Thanks for the encouragement.   :thankyou:  Sometimes I think I am a bit loco  :D trying to learn two things at once, but it is a lot of fun.   :)

Kathy,
I have not seen that.  I will go search for it.  It sounds intriguing.

I read through the blog posts for drawing from your imagination and found them quite interesting.  I like the Exercises.  I did some of them using zen brush, but I swapped back over to sketchbook.

I'm not sure what zen brush is. Is that another drawing program? I've been doing my the excersies in sketchbook and on paper. I have better control on paper at this point but am determined to get the feel of the digital tools too.  :)

Good that the digital drawing is getting more attenion. I had tried this on my Ipad a year ago. It´s amazing what people can do digitally.
Kathy, good luck on this new venture!

Zen brush is another app.  I have used it to scribble and draw and erase. With the pencil, it isn't really needed anymore. 

I started on her perspective post today and found I need to read it again tomorrow.  After I have coffee.    :coffee:
