Hi Xia,

In this drawing, it looks like you draw with a hard edge 100% opacity brush, then you make it bigger and somehow it turns gray without clicking on a different color, how did you do this?

and how did you smooth off that shading you did so easily? i didnt even see you switch to a soft edge brush?

ah its too fast! can you please explain this it would help me so much.

snow> Tips: If you want you digital drawing or sketch to look more like pencil, then do not use 100% black. Use only in between 75% to 90% depending on how dark you want it. Then I start of rough using 30% 50% opacity, then 100% opacity. For sketching alone, you are right, I only use hard edge.
Then when I lay down big block of value (different layer, but then I use soft edge ERASER. :)
