    simple question here...

    ive stumbled across an artist .. Monsta ..

    he does stuff like this ..

    [​IMG]



    and makes videos like this





    just wondered, how you'd go about creating this?

    im assuming the first picture is drawn on computer software? or does he draw it on paper and scan it into the computer? ..

    then how would you even attempt to animate your drawings?...

    anyone have any idea at all.. and what software programs would be best to use??

    something adobe im guessing?...

    He probably uses a drawing tablet in conjunction with Adobe Illustrator.

    you can easily create images like that in photoshop or illustrator (y)

    in fact, in that first one would be *really* easy to create because all of the colours are completely flat.

    so illustrator.. i have that i think. do i need a tablet like a wacom then just been looking into it..

    do you not sketch out on paper first? then scan into your computer and fill it in / go over it sorta thing? ... or do you just draw from scratch on illustrator?

    whats the difference between drawing in photosop vs illustrator ?

    youtube vids they look identical... guessing they arent?

    get a graphics pad

    plugs into your PC and it has a pen then whatever you draw comes up on illustrator/photoshop

    been meaning to get one for ages just to mess around with

    you can create images like that without a wacom board. just use the mouse.

    you do not need to sketch it first, you can definitely draw that from scratch in illustrator. but if you find it easier to work by sketching first then scanning it in, there's nothing wrong with that.

    photoshop v illustrator- they are different. some of the tools work differently. the pen tool in illustrator can take a bit of practise to get right.

    You can definitely get a Wacom tablet that works with a PC. Had one at an old job that we used for editing in ArcGIS.
