LIE-CHEAT-STEAL LIKE A FISH by Mayeko LIE-CHEAT-STEAL LIKE A FISH by Mayeko
LIE: To yourself until you have the confidence for real. We aren't born great artists, it's a lifelong process.
CHEAT: To find short cuts to create the product you want to put out. Lateral thinking is for more than just tricky riddles.
STEAL: Bits and pieces of technique, concept and form that catches your eye, from any and every available source. Let the sharp eyed Magpie be your spirit guide.

The sketch used belongs to the person who initially inspired this tumble into sharing "wisdom". Used with permission.

Maybe it's just my monitor, but I don't get what difference it makes to the end result to use a textured brush. Actually, I don't even get why God seems to have forsaken you when you used the round hard brush. Can anybody explain? Otherwise very fun tutorial!

Great tut Mayeko. Thanks for the tips. I have just started out using a (cheap)tablet, this is really helpful.

Inking at over 100% works great for hard-copy pen inking, too. Scan sketch, blow it up, and print it out either in non-photo blue or very faint greyscale. Just make sure to convert your linework with a graphics program, since scanner software seems to invariably suck at it.

Using a texture brush is a new one on me, though. I might give digital inking another shot someday.
