Ooooo yayyy I’m excited for you hun :partying_face: .
Uhhh let’s see, well my personal first rule of IbisPaintX would be to use a large canvas. At least 2000 by 2000 ( idk if you already know that :sweat_smile: ).
Dip pen hard is one of the best brushes to use. I also have (well it’s not mine) a really good shading tutorial. Lmk if you have any other questions as I’m just throwing out general stuff right now. :joy:

Ofc! Yeah using a large canvas has more “ground to cover” but makes the quality sooo much better. Which is something I didn’t learn until way later. I’m not the greatest editor/artist or whatver but IbisPaintX is my child at this point. :rofl: :sob:

Umm when outlining, or really anything, don’t be afraid to keep adding layers. It’s the absolute worst when you realise that they are on the same layer :sob:

Oh and drawing takes a lot of time! When I first started I would get really impatient and spend up to ten minutes on one thing, now it takes up to 40 minutes to colour the hair…

Hm, use both hard brushes and airbrush to shade (thought I recommend use hard brushes to shade mostly). You should also learn anatomy since it helps with knowing where and how to shade + what type of brushes to use

Hey! @nicollil

If you still need art advice I have a few:

  1. Always have stabilizer on all the way (so you can have a cleaner outline when drawing:)

  1. When shading I recommend to get the exact same color of the skin tone of the char and make it slightly darker. And use different layers when shading each arm, leg of the body because if you use the same layer for the entire shading part some parts of the body won’t look as though it’s been shaded in.

Then make the opacity of the darker shade of the skin see through a bit:

Then you go to the section “filter” on the left side of Ibis Paint X and you use Gaussian Blur and set the setting of Gaussian blur however blurry you would like it to look for shading.

I hope this helps!
