Dei's Gimp Drawing Life
This thread will serve as a journal kind of thing, for my growing in Gimp drawing :o I wanna learn Sugimori style and then improve into my own style. As I know nothing involving drawing with Gimp, everything is bad. The only knowledge I have is when I draw on pencil and paper, you all know my drawing on that ;D

It's time to get digitized.. Was that used in Digimon? Seriously.. I hope not ;-; I just thought of it. ;-; . . .

I'm learning from Henrie-sama :O Even though I know nothing at all. N-o-t-h-i-n-g.

First Day - Knowing absolutely nothing.

RE: Dei's Gimp Drawing Life
You should ask Henrie-sama if she can teach me, too. I'm far too shy to ask...

Pretend it's made of tapioca? Big Grin *totally not helping* The shakiness goes away with practice. I didn't have smooth lines when I started, either. Long, smooth, curved lines -still- give me issues.


Yyyup, lineart. Actually, zack posted a bird just now that demonstrated what I wanna tell you. Tongue

See how he used varying line widths? Things that are closer to you appear bolder than things away from you. And smaller details, like the patch of color for the eye are drawn in thinner lines. (So for you, that'd be quicker strokes. c: ) Although I really want to inform you both of the Image > Autocrop Image option. It cuts all the white space around the line art completely out, so... there aren't strange gaps in places. *chuckle*

That's my Cardinote, he showed me, and it's beautiful. I guess I can look at my own image for a reference.

RE: Dei's Gimp Drawing Life
In the menu bar, go to the "Image" dropdown menu, then down to "Autocrop Image". Do this to your final image before sharing it on the internet, because it takes your image from a picture with lots of white space around it to

Henrie, any tips on how to get refined lines with the tablet? Brush types... ANYTHING?
My lines vary sizes as I draw, my hand shakes like an insane epileptic dog...

I didn't do the same pose or much of any pose lol. I need to make the size bigger because I randomly started drawing big >.<

This is another crocodile, except he's part metal.
