Quick Tips:

  • I prefer to use the hard round brush with 100% opacity, 1000% roundness, 0% angle, 100% flow, 20% smoothing with use pressure for size and use pressure for opacity turned off
  • My bold outlines are usually done with a brush setting of 20-30 pixels
  • See Draw and paint with brushes  for more information on brush options

Quick Tips:

    • I prefer to set my brush size to 10-15 pixels for this part
    • If you add a new layer for each step, you are less likely to impact lines from another step when erasing mistakes
    • Zoom in where the lines intersect and erase or add strokes where needed to maintain clean edges

 


 ➍ Fill the sectioned off areas with patterns

      • Create a new layer by tapping + to add a new layer for this step
      • Adjust the size of your brush as needed
      • Draw patterns in each enclosed area of white space
      • Zoom in to inspect the line intersections and clean up the edges as needed

 

The patterns in Zoe the Dog are bringing her to life!

Quick Tips:

  • I prefer to set my brush size to 5-10 pixels for the patterns, and smaller for little details
  • Try painting some areas black and erasing to create a pattern for some sections
  • As an alternative to using the eraser tool, you can  hold down the touch modifier (the white circle) with one finger to temporarily turn your brush into an eraser

 

Zoe the dog is fully unleashed!
