How to do Doodle Art lines


Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

Hi Clara Montseny,

 

Would it be possible for you to provide an example to the type of lines you are trying to create? I have a rough idea of what you are looking for but I'd just like to be sure!

 

Thanks

Would be better if the answer and example could be posted here - that way others can benefit.

You're right, DesignMeister, it's best if I post it here ;) .

 

I passed this link on to Callum, I want to design some objects with a similar stroke like the doll you can see in the image. It's fair to say that the last few days I've been struggling with this issue, and maybe it's not like doodle art lines and I could do so with a calligraphic brush. What do you think about that?

Have you tried double clicking a brush, and then varying the width and opacity settings - this will cause strokes made to vary in width and opacity?

Yes, a tablet helps.

 

But, have you tried the textured vector brushes. There are also a few freebie samples made by AD users. W/o pressure control, only velocity from the mouse, natural looking strokes are pretty difficult..

 

The pixel painting brushes are quite nice even w just a mouse, but with the down side of not being re-scalable like the vectors.

I think you can create quite lively lines of varying width using pencil tool in AD. Wacom sure helps here.

I am trying out all your ideas with my Wacom, thank you very much!

Mmmh - I´m pretty sure we´re looking at a pixel image you linked to. So my question is: are you trying to mimic these lines with vector paths? Well - and why?

 

Cheers

Hello PixelPest,

 

I wanted to design some objects with a similar stroke like the doll you can see in the image. I played around with the water brush settings and I made it! ;-)
