Here are some step-by-steps.




A friend of mine was just starting out working in Photoshop and other software on a computer and he asked me for a few pointers. Here (without my running commentary, I'm afraid) is what I sent him.

  2. Great stuff! Are you using a Cintiq now, or still on the normal Intuos?

  3. I always imported line art and coloured it in photoshop because I didn't think one could get a good, 'real' looking, brush line on a computer. Well not until I saw you could. Thanks for posting your tutorials back then, it turned me, and many others, on to the possibilities of Wacom 6 years ago. It was a generous and helpful thing to do for artists everywhere and I'll be sure to point others interested in the digital inking process to your invaluable demonstrations.

  6. Great to see your blog Brian! I finally got a chance to see you in person at NYCC this year, you were concentrating on a commission and it was a pleasure to see the master at work.
    I've been inking with Photoshop pretty successfully ever since I bought a Cintiq tablet. being free to erase at will adds a tremendous range of marks much like using white out in traditional approaches.
    Stuart, if you want to get closer to the look of real brush strokes, try the ink options in Corel Painter.
    Brian, how do you feel about the of the absence of the "original" piece of art when working digitally?
