If you have been on the forums over the last few months, you would notice that DrunkDuck's very own brilliant artist, fallopiancrusader, has been creating videos in which he demonstrates how he creates his illustrations on computer.
One type of art he has mastered is conceptual sketches using technical drawing. This is mostly used in technical designs when coming up with a concept sketch to show to a client. He also uses traditional painting techniques on a digital platform when drawing his comic, Mindfold.
We are very lucky to have fallopiancrusader on our site because he has the experience to be an instructor of sorts. There is a lot of innovative techniques we all can learn from watching his tutorials. He has a lot of advice to offer, like not spending more than four hours on a concept drawing that might be discarded in the design process.
