Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video The humble pencil, part of Painter 2017 Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Ah, the humble pencil.…Such a simple instrument, yet capable of so much.…This simple tool can produce…an amazingly wide range of expression…based on how it is held and finessed…with your hand, wrist, and arm motion.…The Wacom tablet senses all of these motions…and Painter then translates them…into your expressive strokes.…Before jumping into painting,…it's a good idea to create a guide sketch first.…This step helps to familiarize yourself with the subject,…as well as specifically determining…how detailed you intend to take the painting.…
Because we are working in a digital environment,…we can keep the sketch isolated on its own layer.…When the painting is finished,…we can remove the guide sketch layer…leaving only the painted result.…Because I'm going to be using this in a larger piece,…I had to figure out what the dimensions should be for this,…so I've now got just this separate page, basically,…that I'm going to be painting on,…and then, later on, I'm going to transfer that painting…into the larger environment of the collage.…
