Tools for displaying drawing

March 21, 2012 in Comment, General

Bloghorn enjoyed this video from Procartoonists.org member Alex Matthews on his working processes. We asked him about it and he told us.

I always draw in Photoshop with a Wacom pad. I prefer to use paper, lightbox and a dip-pen and ink, but I find this is a massive time-saver and I can get results that are practically as good without having huge piles of paper around the house. The Dandy asked me to contribute to their series of how-to-draw videos. They paid me for it! You can also see videos on their YouTube channel by Wilbur Dawbarn, Jamie Smart, Wayne Thompson and others. I used a simple, free web-based program called Screencast-O-Matic which enables you to record the portion of the screen you want rather than the whole thing, as most programs do, like Quicktime. Then I edited it a bit in Adobe After Effects.
