It was just a test, dammit…

tl;dr.fr : je m’essaie dernièrement en stream à m’habituer à dessiner sur tablette graphique et explorer les capacités de Clip Studio Paint pour voir si c’est mieux que Photoshop pour le dessin — j’ai voulu essayer une option sympa permettant de bouger une “poupée” en 3D pour faire une pose, et dessiner par dessus — le test a été bien plus loin que prévu, haha, même si je n’aime ni le face du persos, ni la pose (mais que fait donc balai-dans-le-***-man en plein désert ?) — j’ai appris pas mal de choses en le faisant, c’est au moins une satisfaction ^^’ et suis un peu plus à l’aise au stylet — je fais rarement de colorations, j’ai un peu improvisé et tatonné, j’aime relativement le rendu final...

Being mostly a “pen & paper” guy, I’ve been recently trying to get accustomed to draw on a graphic tablet, the Huion New 1060PLUS and exploring the capacities of Clip Studio Paint (brushes, shortcuts, etc), maybe a better way to draw in a comic art style than Photoshop ? I really struggle at the time to start a digital drawing from scratch, something is bothering me to do things that seems “natural” on paper, like placing the main elements of a piece, or do an anatomicaly correct human character, haha. Thankfully, CSP got a cool option : you have a human-like puppet, and you can modify its pose and view angle, all the articulation being movable in 3D, with shades. So, this particular drawing was a test at first to see if starting something from this “puppet” was viable.

But, I was streaming, and get caught in it for hours, and it went way too far than intended, haha. I’m not really satisfied with the pose which is too…tight-assed (in fact, WTF is he doing ?!), but I learned from it, and got a bit more familiar with the stylus. I also spent a rare time trying to colorize a drawing, trying new things. The background was done later, with the mouse, just to fill the blanks ! But it was also the occasion to test the blending functionnalities of CSP (in fact very similar to PS, only the menus are a different mess) and new brushes. His face is at the same time far from what I do usually, and similar to the style I want to get rid off, haha. I’m hating this drawing but also like what I was able to do in it. Artists are complicated.
