does anyone us the mouse to color the picture??
Thats just effing brilliant... All this time trying to find how to draw a straight line and it was one of the keys I use all the time... SHIFT!! I constantly have my finger on shift for the undo, forward, backward commands... But I never tried drawing with it held down... WOW... Thanks dude!
Killing.people, you just made my day. Your video tutorials were awesome! Thanks, man.
EDIT: By the way, did you make the colour swatch used in the videos yourself?

if not the HSB slider in the color window, i usually use one of the default HKS swatches and may add new swatches to them if i want to keep a specific color. rather than making marks on my piece, i may opt to store them as a swatch. if it turns into a sexy little swatch, save that bitch.Originally Posted by naavis
for anyone else that is lost:
I think I would turn gay for you... Heh... You helped me so much you have no idea. *Tosses Painter 9 out the window*
(I have had you in my buddy list for quite some time after seeing you sketch book and luckily while at my girlfriend's house I saw your last post was here... Bookmarked it and when I came home had her send it to me...)
These are what I really needed... I would like to know what tablet you use... Because it seems you have a few more options... I have the Graphire 3... Maybe you have the Inq (whatever it is) 3... I wish I would have gotten that one... I don't think it was out when I bought this though... I am going to paint right now though... Thank you for your extreme help...
Oh yeah besides knowing what tablet you use... I also would like to know how you are switching your brushes so fast... Like the size and what not... And some of my shortcuts in Photoshop CS do not work anymore... Gets extremely annoying... The tool shortcuts work... But things like undo and really anything you can get from the menu doesn't... Gets really tiring always getting away from my painting to go click up there... I would like to know if you have any idea how to make them work..

wacom.com has a cool wizard that helps you choose the wacom that's best for you. check it out: http://www.wacom.com/tabletwizard/index.cfmOriginally Posted by killing.people
i right-click on the canvas with the brushtool for the brsuh window.
[ ] brackets change brush size.
numpad numbers control opacity or flow (depending on if the airbrush toggle button is on).
shift+brackets change softness percentage of the brush.
here is a thread with a bunch of shortcuts:

Well since I'm kind of young at the moment (15) and those are bit pricey... I think I will invest in an Intuos3 9x12... (that is what was chosen by those assorted questions)
Well this morning around 4am I decided to try out your tutorial... and here is the results... It is like 10% done (Still have the rest of the picture to go obviously) I think it is rather good for my age and experience...
i have a 9x12 and i think they are too big, you may want to concider dropping a size (8x6). for a first tablet, that's one of the best brands you can get for the type of work you're looking to do to my knowledge.
thanks for sharing your work, keep at it soN! wehw!
(whoo first post on CA)
I noticed you said an intuos 9x12 is too big, I was looking at moving up from a 4x5 graphire and I'd always kinda thought the closer to screen size, the better?
I guess this is wrong :p
as a 9x12 here is only $50 more than a 6x8 I was planning on getting one but now I'm not sure :p
So how does one know what sized tablet's best?
hello fififi,Originally Posted by Fififi
only $50 more, eh? hmm .. i spent around $200 more to get a 9x12 when i bought mine. you are getting more surface area for your buck. so that's a plus in my eyes.
i draw with my wacom in my lap, and store it under my desk when i'm not using it. it's starting to creak. a thing to concider would be your desk space. i don't have the space to let it chill on my desk and its size doesn't work well with how i throw it around.
there are different strokes for different folks and the only way you know which stroke you like the most is to swing. buy the one you want, after all it's your moo-lah.
really great advice, I hadn't even thought about desk space
Thanks for the awesome advice with all of this! Like Geuseppe, I've been using Photoshop for years, but I hadn't painted in the program until a few weeks ago.
I have an Intuos3 4x5, and the small size is NOT a drawback. The tablet has given me no problems at all with accuracy or detail work. The small footprint and reduced size make it very worth it. I recommend going with a 4x5, since I've tried the 6x8 and it feels about the same, but it costs $90 more. The 12x9 is too big for some people, and it's very expensive. The 4x5 is a wonderful piece of equipment. If you qualify for academic pricing, the pricetag goes down even more.
