Inkscape ~ Add Detail with a Wacom Tablet

 

Wacom examples for Eye Draw It post

Here are a couple of whimsical drawings that illustrate how I can add detail to my drawings with my Wacom tablet and pen.  The second example is an illustration I finished a year or so ago. I liked it but it needed something more. You can see all the added detail in the updated version.

Of course, most of this I could do with a mouse, but it would be very tedious and I don’t think I have the patience for that. It’s so much easier to add detail with a Wacom pen and tablet. I’m pretty happy with how I’m able to give my drawings more of a hand drawn look now that I have the drawing tablet.

I love Wacom!

Happy drawing.

Inkscape and Wacom Intuos Pro

I bought myself a new Wacom Intuos Pro… with a little help from birthday and Christmas gifts. Most of my Inkscape drawings start with vector shapes; it’s a little difficult to do much sketching with a mouse. And, I never have been very good at sketching with a pen and paper. However, I really like using a few freehand lines to add interest, and give my drawing a bit of that hand-drawn effect.

Here is an illustration of my little Eye Draw It birdie, modified with some small strokes created using my new Wacom Pen and Tablet.

Happy drawing.
