Q:Hey, absolutely love your lineart, and was wondering if you had any advice for someone looking to switch from digital media to paper?
get a lot of paper.
Try to be free with it, don’t be concerned that what you put down on this paper isn’t perfect, just draw for the sake of drawing. Feel out your own way of doing things. you gonna ink directly over pencils? You gonna ink using a lightbox? Lotsa options.
I find that the way I use my tablet to draw (don’t very often these days.) it works best as a brush, I feel like I have much less control over it. pen and ink has a much more solid flow.
Lotsa tools too, I use primarily Nib and liquid ink to draw comics, along with Pentel brush pen and faber castell art pens. I like a little texture when I ink a lot of the time and use cartridge paper sketchbooks for stuff like Light n Stone or Fish Girl, cos you can get cheap books of it that are easy to carry around. Sometimes Bristol Board for really nice looking smooth final stuff.
That’s all my preference. Some people can work just fine on regular copy paper with any old pen.
Important thing is to just work at it, find your own methods that feel good and not get too hung up on mistakes, or pictures that you may think went wrong.
Oh, and it’s okay to use white paint / tipex when required.
Back from a brief canterbury holiday, did some sketching from the Beaney museum, including some swords and many a taxidermied bird and one death’s head moth.
