no because if ya actually good the brush won’t actually matter/brush doesn’t improve the way it looks in the end style/feelingwise
that’s the attitude i contest to! the way i feel my personal skill level doesn’t affect how i draw with different brushes. what changes is the feeling i get, i guess. in my hand and psychologically. if a brush is hard to draw with or annoying i don’t enjoy drawing as much and that shows in my art. similarly if i enjoy using another or it just gives me a different feeling and different feedback it affects how my sketches turn out. not in terms of this one is better necessarily but like flat/rectangular brushes get me drawing more geometrically because that’s the feeling i have whereas loose gritty small brushes get me drawing more realistically.
the reason i wondered about others is that i feel like people with that attitude personally aren’t affected as much, but yeah i’d object to the assertion that the brush can’t necessarily improve or change style and feeling because well, obviously i’m not a master or anything by any means but i feel like as i’ve improved especially in the past few years the more the psychological aspect of different things like brushes and texture affect how i draw? cause i’ve been looking at things more and more as cohesive wholes and i’m developing a personal mindset of establishing what i want to get across in a picture and then making p much every decision based on that. and in general i think that’s making drawing a lot more cerebral for me WHICH IS REALLY STIFLING SOMETIMES LMAO but it gets me focused a lot more on how i’m feeling and getting that across. so i want the feeling to be synchronized i guess all of the way, and since brushes are what is building your picture they can either guide or block my inspiration via the feedback they give me.
oh my god that is very long and redundant sorry but it’s a weird thing to try to explain wwwwww
hey digital artist followers!! a bit of a survey question: do you feel the way you draw is significantly affected by the brush you use? i’ve been thinking about how i’ve seen people assume that most people asking artists for their brush settings think they’ll ~gain skill~ by using the same brush while (besides the fact they could just like the effect) i know that my sketching style is very affected by the kind of brush i use, at least digitally. i’ve also tried others’ brush settings before and thought “i can’t believe they can draw with this. this is so annoying and uncomfortable and overall stifling.” how about you?
a little icon for likeclimbing to make it a bit easier to recognize that it’s me/visentinempire sending those asks and liking posts and since apparently i have a mark theme going i might as well complete the set
look at all of those chickens
i draw a lot more than this blog makes it look but a hell of a lot of things are either unfinished or stuck rn in the thumbnail/sketch phase (this is in addition to all of the other wips i screenshotted a few months back …)
i rarely get detached from an idea so that’s why i never just dump things that’ll “never be finished”. and i really don’t like posting full progress shots because the kind of … surprise factor is lost, i guess? i feel less of a motivation to finish if people know what i’m doing, i guess. otherwise there’s still the push of “this is a great idea you need to show people this idea”. but at the same time i get anxious not posting any of it at all. so here’s a tiny bit??
(and i have so many more ideas!! that i just haven’t gotten down yet. including things for other people. you know who you are i have not forgotten
