    Tablet drawing... harder than it looks

    Drawing with the new tablet feels a little like writing with the wrong hand.

    Value study from reference

    B&W study from a photo. Trying to see what is there and get my hand to reproduce the impression.

    Just keep playing with PS until you feel right with your hand It takes me 2 months to get familiar with a tablet. Beside you have formal training with traditional. Super Advantage!

    Are you going to become an environment artist or are you already one?

    Personally, I've found that having good control with inks and brush-involved media like that really helps with getting a hand on photoshop. Otherwise, changing the pen sensitivities and the reading settings of the program itself can make the marks on the screen conform more nicely to your strokes. Check out Feng Zhu's youtube series, he has a nice little section where he talks about photoshop tweaking.

    JonHop: Thank you for the encouragement! I look forward to seeing your progress as well.

    Hezebeth_040795: Environments may have just felt like the natural place to start. It's interesting the kind of things that happen at a subconscious level. Thank you for the kind words!

    ATP: The videos by Feng Zhu are largely responsible for me buying the tablet. I'm definitely a fan. Sadly, it probably isn't the pen that needs adjustment. The point about ink/brush media noted. Thank you!

    Nagel brushes FTW!

    Top image: found a brush that I think should help with finer details and sketching (Thank you Nagel series-33!!).

    Top left: Playing around with round brush.
    Top Right: Working out how to smooth the roughed-in strokes
    Bottom Left: Adding color (subtle here). Orange light with complementary blue in shadows. BW image sandwiched between two color layers (one for light and one for shadow)
    Bottom Right: Exploring color. Soft green key light. Tetradic scheme.
