I really love how you do those artworks. But i dont get how u color all the stuff and how u use the smudge tool to keep it realistic..

Maybe you could do a tutorial just for the way u color it or how to use the brushsettings (opacity/flow).
Or i dont know. It would be a big help for me because i want to become better and i really need some help :(

and again i really love your art and drawings and everything!

this is exellent and has really helped me with my rendering.
I have one question though- what is the tool you use after the first shade you apply on the right side of the mecha? to blend out the shadow?
idrawgirls said…
Sam> I paint first stage of value (shadow) on separate layer, then I use softround brush to erase it around the edge. I hardly never use blending tool, some people do. There are many ways to skin the cat, only the end result matters.

Do I really need to get one of those Wacoms? Because I'm a bit concered if I should get one or not. And where can I find the Flat brush thing that you use in the start? :)
idrawgirls said…
Ano> Well, if you serious about doing art then you should. If it's just a hobby to you, then you don't need it unless you are rich and have lots of money laying around. Well, I would recommend it because it's easier than real paint, and you can save lots of TREEs that way.
The flat brush, just go to default round PS brush-- Open Brushes window the squeeze the circle together, now you got a FLAT circle brush or just plain flat brush.

Love it, but i just get really confused with the brushes that u us at the very first stage.
when you are defining the shadows what kind of opacity and flow do you use.
and at the end for the final touches i also have the same question

hope is not to much to ask...hahah

Beginning: 30% to 50% finding your values.
Then final only use mostly 100%. Watch more vids then you will understand.

I really appreciate your art and this website...i just recently found out about you...3 days ago lol and your work is amazing.....truly an inspiration to me...i been drawing(sketching) for 10 years now .....trying to use APS cs2...i dont understand the brush your using...the one that doesn't go over the lines you drew for the outline of your drawing...please get back to me on this...thank you..
idrawgirls said…
Anonymous> Thank you for the kind words. I use a bunch of different programs.. but mainly PS cs2, cs3, and cs4. Paint underneath the layer then it won't go over the lines or use overlay. :)

Can you tell me what is best
1.-Wacom Bamboo
2.-Wacom Bamboo Fun
pls reply in less than a week :)

thanks in advance:)

PS: i need it for drawings :)
idrawgirls said…
I would rather get WACOM intuo2-3 or Genius MousePen 6x8. Bamboo is probably way too small to be able to draw anything like that. Peace!
Anonymous said…
k thanks :) .. i think i will go for an Genius 6x8 because i don't have money for an wacom and I'm not such an good artist :) ..
