Learning Pencils: Which pencil to use, and when ? - "Secret Picnic"

in drawing •  12 days ago


Hi hi hi

Still experimenting and learning Krita's pencils :)

Yesterday I tried the Pencil 2 tool and the Tilted Pencil tool with the Anime Princess piece, and today, I expanded !!! wooooo !! You can see in the video that I basically used all the pencil tools that came with the software with today's picture XD

This time, let's try to include an environment for the picture ! So I didn't start with the eyes, oh no. I started with .... using the Soft Pencil tool with making some forms, some scratches here and there and suddenly, a BUSH came into being :D And then it went from there, hahaha~

In the video I tried to mark which pencil I used for which task, to maybe help you see each tool's different behaviour and how to use which pencil and when :) There's a part where it got cut out at the left side when I was doing the dark, bold shading for the far background, and for posterity, that was the "4B Pencil" tool :).

This is the finished piccar:

make biggu by opening at new tabbu~

The story is that she is having an affair with someone and they would sneak out to meet in secret together, from time to time. This particular time, she arrived first and then, she waited..... and she waited, and waited, and waited. And then, she started to get anxious and worried.

"Is he NOT coming?"

"What is going on?"

"Have we been discovered?!"

She heard a noise and alarmed, she turned around with dark thoughts upon her mind since she's been nursing her worries endlessly in her head! And that's when the picture is drawn, she's startled, her body language is alarmed and unfriendly, and her expression is slightly upset !

Morale of the story: Don't be having affairs, people ! Just break things off first and then you can be together after !!!!

As for tips and tricks of the day,

Placing a character in an environment is a good way to learn how composition works :) And the most basic foundation is the central focus arrangement, which basically means that you try to put whatever would be the main focus at the center of the canvas. It's usually the character's face, but it can vary depending on what you are drawing :) .... for example, in an action pose, it is often not the face but the fist or the punch that's calling for central focus.

Okei! I think I've gotten to know the pencils of Krita a bit better today. I like the soft pencil, the tilted one and the pencil 2, so far. I might move into a different category of brushes entirely tomorrow ! :D

Any questions about how I draw, don't hesitate to ask me in the comments section :D I don't bite~

Whoa! You're certainly turning into a certified Krita monster! Can't wait to see you mimic a color pencil set such as Polychromos or Prisma. :D

·

woah woah ... idonno about that ! i'm just kinda trying things out XD we'll see how far i can go :D

·
·

Hey, did you know that you can rotate the drawing area by pressing shift and the spacebar, then dragging left or right with your pen? Then press 5 to go back to the default view. ;)

·
·
·

owowowoh!!?? i will try this out :D thank you !!

·
·
·

Shift middle click drag works too :)

·
·
·
·

so many secret techniques !!!!

·
·
·

LoL not so much secret technicles as keyboard shortcuts XD Another useful one leading on from tiger's original comment is resizing the brush by holding shift and dragging left or right. I actually have to experiment with my keyboard to find out what the modifier keys to use are as I've got most commonly used things on my wacom buttons and can't always remember what I put on there, just that it works XD

I think I already asked you if you found the right click palette, did you figure out how to add your favourite brushes to it yet? :)

·
·
·
·
·

uh not yet and that right click dial thing freaked me out !! XD;;;;;;;

also i dont draw with my other hand on the keyboard, so keyboard shortcuts are not my thing...

except to control Z

It's really useful! :D I mostly use it for my favourite brushes, the palette is probably also useful but with the way I do shading I have a lot of very similar colours and end up having to look at the colour wheel to see which black or white I have, so it's much easier for me to do a layer palette XD

Do you have buttons on your tablet? I set mine to be undo, redo and the modifiers (and have scripts as the button assignments change between programs) then you just use the buttons and don't need to go to the keyboard except if you have something that you still need but don't commonly use.

indeedy~

beautiful your work

·

Eyes narrowed in concern, background details are really great! This is beautiful VS!

·

thank you fromie :D :D :D i am happies to hear this \o/

good story and good sketch! Love affairs are the beginining of every novel! I would add, transitions in life always starts with love affairs! morality is so boring.... : )

in fiction, it works, i think

in real, dont do things unto others that you dont wanna get the bitter ends of yourself, i think is a good motto

it is like violence, i think

violence is cool in fiction

not so much in real

:3

also, thanks !!

Ohhh she sits in an interesting angle, leaning forward with her arm, quite tense. I understand now from reading on the story why she poses that way. I wonder what's going to happen next XD.      
                         
And yes, I have a question on how you draw... is it magic?    
                       
XD

Magic is just science you dont understand yet !!!

Lol. Don't have affairs. Not getting married sounds like an easier solution. Were you drawing with the stump again?

·

well, either have open relationships or dont have affairs !!! but lying is hurtful~ am i rite????

and this was digital, choo :D

Pfft affairs, they happen when people think they want to try something new and adventurous and dangerous but at the same time want to cling to the old thing they've got in case the new thing doesn't work out, either agree to be poly or make a bloody decision people lol XD

There's definitely a sense of nervousness/unease going on leting the viewer know all is not quite right on what should otherwise be a really nice day for a picnic :D And yay for using all of the pencil brushes! What are you trying next, or will you find out like the rest of us XD

·

YAYAYAYAYA just go open relationships or be straight !!! lying is harmful~

and im thinking charcoal !!! :D :D

Is there a sorted view?

I only have this 6x6 or so pad with a scrollbar for all the pencils etc.

I am happy that I got used to pencils in my training with a differnt program, that sight just overwhelms me :D

·

sorted view? what do you mean?

if you're happy with what you're using at the moment, i think that sounds great :>

·
·

by sorted I mean for example only pencils, only oil brushes, only...

I can't say I am happy, I have not used it enough to judge ^^

·
·
·

aah yes ! there is ! sorted view :D

(i just found it now)

XD

sorry im still so new at krita ..... . __ .;;;;

·
·
·
·

After I was the one asking you I would have been delighted if you not only tell me you have found it, but also how/where ;)

And I really hate that you can't change anything when you don't have a canvas open :(
And now I somehow have closed those areas and have to find out how to get them back. lol

·
·
·

Oh sorry! It is at the top of the Brush Toolbar, there is a drop down, and you can select "SKETCH" and it picks up all the pencils :D

Very relaxing drawing spidy ❤❤
I wonder how delicious the food is hehhehhehe! ^~^

·

apparently, according to the latest chapter, VERY delicious :D

Morale of the story: Beware of bears that want to steal your picnic food, haha XD

Great drawing and the story fits well! She shouldn't be upset. She's alone, so there's more food for her :D

·

hahahahahah that is such a good take away :D i love food, myself :D
