      I am very particular about my pie.

      So, I’m using a couple different techniques. For this most recent accidental series, I’m calling people with vague phrases, I usually sketch with pen and ink from a photograph first, and sometimes mess with the composition. Then I go from that napkin drawing into Photoshop with the paintbrush tool and the help of a drawing tablet. After that I transfer the jpeg to a painting software I have on my laptop. The painting software allows me a greater sense of pressure on the brush, if that makes sense. This seems to read my handwriting better.

      Does that answer your question?

        cool process. thank you. so let me see if i understand it right. using a pen and ink drawing as a reference you then draw on a tablet. then take that into photoshop and painting software and continue to draw/write. yes that makes sense. i often go from one app to another or photoshop etc. to something else with the work and put it through different processes. sometimes layering in writing etc. cool. what tablet are you using if you dont mind? i often draw on an iPad with my finger rather than a stylus. fun. thank you. aloha.

          That’s correct. It works for me. I’m using a Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet. It’s by no means state of the art. But I got it as a gift, so I’m not complaining. I find that a stylus keeps a steadier line than my finger. But, I often paint with my hands, so who am I kidding. Anything that makes a line is great.
