Extra Ai Features (And Progress Rep

Greetings Fellow Classmates!

So I wanted to elaborate upon two tools not mentioned in class.

The first, which I have been using all of the time is the PAINTBRUSH TOOL.

What's so nice about the Paintbrush tool?

You can add lots of colors to create an interesting look. My personal favorites are the charcoal tool, the watercolor brushes, and of course the generic 1pt tool found under the sidebar menu.


This is more of a rant about a ton of different tools. HOW TO SHADE TO LOOK LIKE AN AIRBRUSH.
Guess what I'm going to bring up

The Gradient Tool. Since I'm not good at explaining, I'm linking this.



P.S. Posting DM tomorrow!

Before I begin, I must point out this website:

Yes. That's exactly what you think it is. So go. Go check it out and be inspired.

K, Digression over.

Chris King is an English artist who majored in media production with subfields in animation and character design. He is a professional artist and has worked for many companies including the Oxford University Press and The Guardian Guide.

Here's some of his work:

Cool huh?

Chris King's work is rather ambiguous, however most of it pertains to technological sci-fi characters. Again, he is a professional illustrator, thus his work goes towards that.

I personally love his style. I really want to be able to do work like his. It's incredible, and I'd love to have enough design/AI proficiency to do work like this!
