Daily Sketch 23: Male 11-12 yrs

original image.

Analysis: Touchscreen laptop take two. Just as bad as take one. :) I'm going to assume that the draw 100 faces before you START to get good theory applies to the digital touchscreen/wacom pen tool as well. Everyone tells me that it has a huge learning curve, but once they get past the screen, they love it. The way I draw, with a series of light pencil strokes, probably doesn't help matters either. There were a number of times I kept trying to draw a line and i'd get a toolbox popup instead, or nothing at all. grr...2 down 98 to go.

If I have time tonight, I will redraw this with pencil.

When drawing on paper, you can make a line light or dark by changing the pressure you apply. How do you adapt that for drawing with the laptop?

One of the ways to do that is by using the black on a transparency setting to draw. The initial lines are gray, but the more lines on top of each other, the darker it gets.
