Experimenting with the Painter brushes.
I first design the character on photoshop cuz I find it rather distracting when drawing on a new application program I'm not yet familiar with. I then open the file in painter, lower the opacity and trace the sketch using the pencil brushes. I use charcoal brush actually cuz it has that sketchy look.
I was trying to achieve a sketch look cuz I really miss drawing on paper. But I've already moved on to 100% digital, no more wasting paper and it made my desk a lot cleaner now. The scanner and printer are dusting away in the attic
Oh I found my sketchbook.....really dusty.
