Wigs Draws Junk

My name is Wigs and I draw things (but mostly Les Mis).

Beat up Grantaire. Maybe it was a bar fight I don’t know you tell me.
Last week I accidentally cracked myself so hard in the nose with my wacom tablet that it bled and bruised. (Yea I don’t know I was trying to untangle the cord and…) Nose is finally feeling normal now. Was thinking about that and other things.

*whispers* what art program do you use

For most all of my digital stuff I use Photoshop, sketching and coloring, but lately I’ve been using Paint Tool Sai and found that the inking is much more manageable. I had been holding out for a while because I have trouble breaking out of routine sometimes but I’m so glad I tried it out. 

My first go was with the vampire picture. I took my Photoshop sketch into Sai and found it much easier to do smooth quick lines. I’ve been using Photoshop for 12 years and the difference was clear immediately with how much better my lines were in Sai. I like sketchy lines but the lines were much cleaner and appealing than trying to do it in Photoshop so I will be sticking with that.

However, Photoshop is better for what it’s meant for, image manipulation, and so I constantly went back and forth between the two to warp, transform, and flip things around to check the drawing and make sure it’s how I wanted it, then back to Sai again. I never go with the first version of my drawing, there’s always things to improve, and flipping your drawing around usually helps you spot things that need fixing (head too big, eyes not aligned etc).  I also stuck to coloring in Photoshop because there are more options (as far as I know) for layer effects and things likes that but I think a combination of coloring with the two programs could be quite powerful.

And it’s not that you can’t get clean lines in Photoshop but it can be a little bit of a battle and take a long time. These are lines made in Photoshop. Even though it looks smooth from far away, you can see a bit of wobble, like on the edges of the coat, and the flagpole.

Sai’s stabilizer really helps to eliminate the wiggle in lines that comes from user error, so I’m delighted about that. I used the same method for this one, inking in Sai and coloring in Photoshop:

(And don’t think that I don’t make a sketch first, there’s no way I can draw those clean lines without a messy first pass underneath.)

That’s all I use those, and an Intuos tablet. I’m no expert at coloring since I’ve spent so much of my time over the years sticking with pencil but I’m trying to expand and try some new methods since I’m quite inspired by so many lovely tumblr artists.

As for the Sai brush settings I haven’t tried out too much. The vampires one was done with the brush tool with paper texture on it, and the too-pretty-to-be-Grantaire was done with an almost default pen tool.

Hogwarts AU Quidditch Captains. Bahorel is a beater for Gryffindor and Montparnasse is a Seeker for Slytherin and yes this is meant to be innuendo of course lol. Atheltic sexual tension etc.
Anon asked me who I ship Montparnasse with well here is your answer. It was born from rp and rare pair yes I know but aggressive good-natured guy with a sense of humor + cold hearted pretty boy bastard = yes I like it. Dedicated to malfaux who was waiting for this.
(and just because people might wonder, Courf is Hufflepuff captain, Musichetta is Ravenclaw captain)

Sorry for the headshots doodles lately but tonight I wanted to prove to myself that I am capable of cleaner lines and shading. I always look at people’s lines and say I wish I could do that, I wish I could make thin and clean lines, and I know it just takes a lot of concentration. I’ve already drawn this really but just think of it as an update, although this one is far too pretty for Grantaire. Oops. Twas an accident. (But then again Blags is too pretty too so whatevs.)

A sketch commission with color for rthecynic, who wanted knight Grantaire with a grumpy Princess Enjolras. Enjolras is basically like why are you making me go through this indignity, do you really expect me to wear this. Princess drag is hard for him to accept but Grantaire is enjoying his own role as the knight quite nicely. Oh my fair Enjolras, grant me your favor…

Just a doodle of modern Grantaire lifting up his shirt because I spend a lot of my day and night thinking about boys undressing.

AU where Montparnasse and Enjolras are rival equestrian competitors because fashion and Grantaire is a scruffy stable boy. Wanted to draw this one for a long time, rped it once.
