Funny you should say that... I had an odd problem in trying to work like that. .

Have a look here: unexpected colourblending

Sometimes it requires a work around, which, to me at least, seems stupendously time consuming for a brush stroke(in the above example that is).

Hi linda as you can se im from sweden also but im going to keep this in english cause im not sure if i can type in swedish in here. First of all i made a couple of tries with your shading methods. I used method two cause i think it looks best.


http://www.freewebtown.com/wallaby/ball.jpg
Method 2: used a soft edged brush


http://www.freewebtown.com/wallaby/saturatedball.jpg
Method 2: soft edged brush aswell +
aswell. increased saturation


http://www.freewebtown.com/wallaby/rough.jpg
Method 2: alittle rougher didnt use
a soft edged brush at all just the
spackled one.

I know they aint perfect but im only 16 so im kinda new to this=).
Just a question. do you use a pen aswell when you draw? And does any of the "better" digital artists use a ordinary mouse cause im not realy ready to buy that since it wouldnt be surprising if its quite expensive.
Oh one more question: What size do you normaly work with is it like 1280x1024 or is it realy large like 7000x5000 pixels and then you size it down? What is best how do you get the best results?

wow thats wierd i use some of the same techniques before i ever seen any of your tutorials i play around alot and i read useless tutorials that end up with one good pointer...
i like to use the spacekled brush til i get it blend it nicely then i use the soft edge to blend things better i like to lay my blush and highlight stuff in last over the top of the base blend color

No sane professional artist would paint with a mouse, no.
For prices on equipment, check resellers. A small tablet is not that expensive, and maybe you can even find one secondhand on Ebay.
Sizes vary a lot depending on how the final art will be displayed.

For all other art related questions, try this one:

You paint and draw freehand strokes with a mouse? By choice? When you have a tablet!?

Why, some kind of carpal thing?

Here's what I done, its my first time blending and I have to say I had a lot of fun doing it. I'm more a vector guy so this is really good tut, and has helped me in my work.

Yeh, I still find myself using the mouse half the time for painting. I've used the mouse so much that I can paint pretty well with it. I think it might have something to do with all my game playing
I used to do pixel painting in paint (and before that Deluxe Paint on the Atari ST) as a kid with a mouse too, although I used to do sprite type stuff and little animations as opposed to full paintings. (those where the days! ) I don't even think about it, I just find myself using the mouse

Thankfully I don't get any Carpal pain so that is not a consideration. I do agree however that you probably have to be mad to use the mouse

Linda thank you for posting this I've trying to figure out a good way to blend colors I'll have to play around some more with this technique. I'm having a problem though my pencil drawing blurs alot easier then my colors.
