    Pros of procreate and other digital products

    Okay so i learned something new with procreate that is extremely important for engravers who need to draw detail. The first drawing i did (in this thread) was done by importing a image and drawing on it. The issue with this is the resolution of the ink/pencil , is locked to the resolution of...

    Getting started drawing on procreate in 2021?

    The difference between 480p quality video and 720p is massive what we are talking about is 1080p and 4k. Which is an astronomical amount of detail that aids in learning.

    Getting started drawing on procreate in 2021?

    Yes not just low resolution but also the discs are easy to damage compared to blu ray. New videos in HD should be shot for blu ray. I can’t pay like 40-50 bucks for what is basically a vhs.

    Help, please: Trying to get back into engraving. Brain-stuck

    thanks sam. Quick question. Is drawing shading important? this is the part I had issues with and gave up on. Other than that the stencils helped but i wasnt really doing freehand. Also is there a way to transfer from paper to metal?

    Help, please: Trying to get back into engraving. Brain-stuck

    So basically mr. dubbers was kind enough to sell me an (a personally engraved) Ngraver system awhile ago. I got bit by the engraving bug but ultimately broke down when I was unable to really advance regarding drawing and more importantly transfering. I did some practice plates but none really...
