One of the best ways to learn how to use this software is by seeing it in action. So for this demonstration, I'm going to sketch the interior of a room. You can find the files for this demo in the exercise folder. But first, I'd like you to simply watch the demo and devote your attention to learning my thought processes and the tools that I use. Before you start any new drawing, you should consider what you want to accomplish. Visualize your goal. Not every detail but in the general direction you want to go. This is an essential step and will help you to learn the program and develop your skills more efficiently.
In this demo, you not only learn about the tools and interface, but also you'll learn some important layering techniques. I've already created the base layer, and it consists of cleaned up line work and shapes that are fully enclosed, ready to be flood filled with color. We'll add shading and texturing layers, giving the surfaces depth and dimension, using a non-destructive methodology. What is a non-destructive methodology? It's a term used to describe a process by which you can go back and further refine the individual parts of your illustration, even after you've completed the project.
Pay attention to the various elements I place on individual layers. I can go back in and alter a shadow layer or a highlight layer without affecting the rest of the image. Multiple layers are a very powerful feature of SketchBook Pro.
