Practicing trees. About a ten minute sketch while listening to a ComfyCon panel.
I bought and downloaded the Frenden set of brushes for Manga Studio 4 EX a while back, and the Sketching Pencil is still one of my favorites. An old trick for making more organic looking scenes is to basically make a big brush and just let it do its thing. Don’t worry about detail, and focus on space. I only added in hard lines with pen after I’d established everything already, and only to help define things.
This is good for planning a woodsy scene since you can very easily hash out the environment in just a few minutes (even better since the sketching pencil gets lighter and thinner as you add less pressure, thus creating the illusion of depth as you go light on stuff way back in the background), so you spend less time sketching to make things “look” right and more time conceptualizing the scene you want to eventually render.
I don’t know why I spiel’d. As you were.
