Von Glitschka shows us how to use opacity, layering, and blend mode settings with vector brushes to achieve an authentic look and feel.
- [Voiceover] When you're creating with vector brushes,…it's all gonna start in analog,…you're gonna work out your sketch,…but the nice thing about this style is you can use…a very rough, drawn sketch such as the one showing here,…this is just a thumbnail sketch of…a happy little apple character,…and I'm gonna execute vector art in a way…that utilizes my paintbrushes that I've created,…and it's not a complicated process.…That said, it just doesn't go really fast,…there's a lot of trial and error to it,…and you might not get it right the first time,…but that's okay.…
Just stick with it,…and the better you focus your attention on…picking up on the exact look and feel you want,…the better your art's gonna be.…So like everything, you're gonna see this same methodology…throughout all my courses,…analog supports digital is what I think,…and this is my rough sketch,…this is the base art I've created on it,…we're gonna go over more methodology about…what tools you can create with your base art,…because you don't always have to use the pen tool.…
