  • Guillermo, yes, it is all digital. If you are using a tablet PC or Wacom monitor, it is much more natural.

  • is the initial sketch (sketch 01) digital? I still find that step hard to control digitally

  • Sketchbook Pro is a great tool...for what it is. Digital paper with layer, lots of tools and no mess. If you like to sketch, it is a great tool. Yes, some form of tablet is a great partner.

  • Thanks Jon. I am going to post these to a new tutorial thread later today. I find that I need to let the images be on the server for a few hours before I post them.

  • How did you get that light source at the top left to be precise ? did you first add highlight, and then with an erase to get the Chamfer affect?

  • Jonathan, good question. This is all Sketchbook Pro. That highlight/shadow is on it's own layer. I first airbrushed the black for the shadows. Then airbrushed white for the highlight. Lastly, I erased the overs-pray on the layer.

  • Hey Jeff. did you cover the highlight layer with paths to get those effects? i think thats how i'd do in photoshop. Haven't yet tried sketch book pro. so just wondering whether the methodology is similar or may be somethin new. great tut btw. Thanks :)

  • Keep in mind that SBpro does not have the selection tools that are in PS. It has layers, with some minor controls. It is plain and simple, digital paper with layers. That was a hand erased edge for that highlight.

  • When you put it that way, Sketchbook Pro sounds like a necessity! Is a tablet more or less essential too?
