Hey, I've been posting here for a while but in case you're not familiar with me at all, heres my flickr:http://www.flickr.com/photos/gabrielyolk/
Heres my problem: I'm learning to paint right now, in oil paints. I've had a tablet for a long time, but always got frustrated whenever I tried to paint with it. Heres an apple I just did quickly (from a refrence) to illustrate my problem:
I can't get it to look smooth at all. Like on the right side, on the area where the dark shadow blends out, it looks all splochy and you can see all of the brushstrokes. When I paint with oil paints, I can just smooth this out with a fanbrush, but I have no idea what I'm supposed to do on this tablet. Right now my settings are:
-The pressure of the brush changes the opacity
-I'm using bigger ( ~20 pixel) hard edged brushes.
I've tried a lot of different things and nothing has really worked. If anyone can give me any tips or anything, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks a lot. I'll just be posting a lot of my digital stuff in here (even though it is god awful) because thats what I really want help on now.
