What is your favorite special effect to use on your digital artwork?
What program do you use to create it, and would you share it with us here?
The process of drawing?I am in the mood to try and draw something new right now.
My process is that I seem to pencil out a figure with a bit of muscular definition. Usually I will scan the picture in and then trace it over with a digital art program. After that I print out the digital lineart. That way I can pencil again a layer of the costume or outfit. And Rinse, Repeat for each layer.
I notice that when I do the pencil drawing of the outline that I am always afraid to draw more on it. Because I want to be able to reshape that figure later or something. Also that I am hesitant to add a superhero costume to my drawing. I figure if I try to draw more over the original it will just ruin the picture because of all the eraser marks.
So I am not sure how to draw a full picture with body and clothes at the same time. Do I go top to bottom, side to side, layer by layer? Or do I not know of a better way to layout my picture so I get all the proportions and sizing right?
