Hey guys, this is a how to image for making tortillions
im sure there must be a few others out there but this was made for a fortnightly (two weekly), " real life photoshop tool replacements" on the Done by Hand Anime Club
. hopefully you will find it a bit useful.
it would be best to either download this or use full screen as it is a fairly big image.
One thing that has always bugged me is having to pay for something when you can literally get it for free (i have been told that "haha you lose papers not free" but then lets be serious it basically is. igf your that desperate go into your local library and get some plainish leaflets.simple) so i decided to share a bit of knowledge with you all. hopefully this will save a bit of money and work for you too.
Anyway a few tips.
1) make sure you try a variety of stokes with you tortillion. go across lines along lines, try everything
2) try lots of different paper. For those of you in school try your chemistry labs for some filter paper, it really is very good for this.
3) remember to clean the end by rubbing it with an eraser.
4) Before cleaning the end look at your drawing, if there is anywhere that need extremely light shading try using it as it will give you very light strokes.
thanks for looking guys. pls check out my drawings on my page and watch me + join our group for more stuff to come.
