Your environmental drawings are always my favorite! In fact the first tutorial that I saw in this blog was that one of the "Snow Rocky Mountain Cliff Environmental Background Concept Scene" I cannot forget that day... I said to myself that Finally I found something I was looking for! :)

Thanks brother, keep posting!

Peace!

Yo Xia!You can totally use this in your comic!Like our heroes will have to go across the bridge but there is an old man(like the one you drew right now).And like he will say:You won't not pass!-and they will have to answer a riddle or something.Oh and don't forget Goofy.

And I hope you have a script because I don't think Mei will save us now.Sorry!I can't help you with that.

XIA said...

Luca> Thanks brother, I am trying to do more environment hoping I will get really good at them. :)

dahaca> You read my mind again, but I will have to do more cityscape scene before they actually go into the wild. Thanks for the thought.

ohhhhhhhh *-* this work is fantastic!!!! O____O

do you have a link of download of your brush? pleaseeeeeeeeeee XD

XIA said...

Agostino> Thanks Bro! I use mostly default round brush (hard and soft), this FLAT you look for resulted from I squeeze the round brush into flat line then rotate as I paint. More brushes download on the new post or go to my twitter. Peace!

another question... do you tell me the setting for tablet (Wacom Bamboo Fun A5) in windows vista? thanks :)

XIA said...

Agostino> Yes, installing wacom in vista is a bit complicate. Vista, honestly, SUCKs...lots of bugs...though it's getting better. I am just telling you to make sure you set up your WACOM on vista correctly and make sure that the sensitivity, opacity on the pen works as it should (Sometimes it doesn't). Look around for the tutorial on google or find someone who is tech savvy around you. Good luck. :)

thanks so much for this! your art is awesome... wondering is there a way to program a Wacom Intuos 4 to rotate the brush? like it has a touch ring you can use for zoom ect. is there a way to make that rotate the brush?

thanks!

XIA said...

Legolos13> I don't think you can rotate brushes in Wacom or PS just by rotating pen or there is no setting that I know of.
Luckily, WACOM has this Marker Flat-Head wacom pen that you can buy from. Just go to Wacom or Amazon and search for flat head brush, then you can rotate the brush along with the edge of the pen's tip. :)
