So I got myself a cintiq and I’ve been practicing irregularly with it. Here’s the latest thing I did.
Honestly it feels a little too smooth and the drawing tools in PS feel a little… off. After wrestling with Procreate and the various Adobe apps on the iPad, I figured that this would be a treat, but it wasn’t really. I haven’t given up, but I’m wondering how to get used to it in a way that’s more pleasant than what I’ve been doing so far.
I don’t know for sure, but I bought myself an iPad last year and I’ve been doing some sketching whilst I familiarize myself with it and work my way up to maybe painting something, so I figured it would be rude not to share.
At one point today I started thinking that these line drawings were too simplistic. After really thinking about it, I decided that my first thought was wrong- they are very deliberate, and in fact in a majority of cases I don’t do any erasing- just plot lines and try to control my hands so that everything lines up.
The fact that it’s “easier” when I’m uninspired or tired doesn’t make it any less worthwhile, and I probably just need to be nicer to myself.
