    Eye Candy?

    Okay.

    Names. Braxton Gaither. I have been drawing for sometime now. and I was on here a while back but I forgot the password and that stuff in between... Oh well - But I will be loading up some images up soon.

    First is my very first crap-fest of a drawing (using a pen-tablet). It's work in progress. I am going to be rather slow because I am very very VERY new to the pen tablet!!!

    Here are two of my hand drawn images. Sucks right? Ha.... I am rather new to art as a whole. I have been drawing for a while, but not really serious. I have been doing film work for the last few years... So... Now I am getting back into drawing...

    These are the same drawings with different effect. I ended up liking both.

    digging the diversity, the clean lines and stylization are coming along nicely.

    but get away from photoshop filters, its weakening your images.

    Thanks.

    I wish there was something on here we they kinda gave you assignments - Little weekly projects.

    Now I have a question, maybe its the way I am doing it - whatever, but When I scan in one of my drawings (I tend to do more of the sketchy art + Inking) I clean it up on Photoshop. It usually takes out detail. Are there any other methods in cleaning up sketchy, and or pencil drawings with out taking out the detail?

    Brax

    yeah that tends to happen when you adjust the contrast drastically on a drawing that has subtle gradations of tonality. i tend to plan in advance if i'm going to touch something up digitally by using solid areas of black without any gray values. when i adjust the levels it practically becomes a duotone drawing of stark white and pure black. this, however, will look grainy around the edges. to counter this make sure youre working rather large with a reasonable resolution. if you need a more in depth guide on scanning and touching up the levels of an ink illustration lemme know.

    I'd like to hear some more on scanning and touching up my sketches.

    I asked my dad, Jeff Gaither (You might now him - I don't know.), and he keeps saying to do it as if it was a regular drawing and I have done so - It takes out alot of detail... or sketching... that I don't want taken out.

    I'll draw up a sketchy drawing of mine to show you my sketching skills. ha
