Jago said...

Hi Erwin, just discovered your blog and am an instant huge fan!

I'm an illustrator working mainly with Photoshop and I'm really struggling to get the beautifully clean lines that you're achieving. When I use the lasso for selections (with a Wacom pen) I always end up with a slightly jaggedy line.....

Any tips?

here's some of my work:

Thank you for posting. I was just telling my 8 year old daughter about framing an image and then I came across your latest work.

Aaron H. Bynum said...

There's a powerful narrative behind every one of your works of art... excellent job yet again.

Erwin Madrid said...

Thanks everyone for the nice comments!

Jago - I used the lasso tool for the fence. For everything else I used a hard edge brush at 100% opacity and pen pressure turned off under Other Dynamics. Make sure the round brush is at 100% Hardness and spacing at 1%. I also played with the roundness to get nice tapered lines. I also paint everything in layers so I can erase with a hard brush as well.

Enrique Fernandez said...

I love the way you mix the sharp shapes and angles, and the warm lights (the red tones on the hands are excellent) . And of course the composition, color,etc...Brilliant!
Cheers!
