OmniSketch Mirror Heart iPad Drawing

Uploaded by HelenLBradley on 17.01.2013

I'm Helen Bradley. Welcome to this video tutorial on creating a mirror drawing
in OmniSketch on the iPad.
If you followed my previous tutorial you know how to create this sort of Seurat
background. Now we're going to create some hearts.
So the first thing I'm going to do is select here and click this box here that
has lines through it. This means that we're going to start drawing four
things at once
and then I'm going to select a brush to use.
So I'm going to start with probably
this second brush in the top row and we'll just see how we go.
I'm going to choose a sort of
red pink because I think I'm going to make
some red pink hearts here, okay.
And now I'm going to start drawing and you can see that I'm actually drawing
all four at the one time.
Now everything is a bit light here so let's go and see. Let's increase the width
fiddle with the adjustments. So you can see now that I can get
a heavier
rendition of these hearts.
So I'm going to change brushes
and see if we can't find
some brushes that will go down a bit more quickly.
Okay, the opacity is really low on that. The width is really low.
Let's go and get
some change of color.
You can see how these brushes all paint very, very differently.
OmniSketch would be
probably one of my
favorite applications simply because it's just
totally funky. You can get some really, really interesting effects with it. And
it's the kind of application that you can play with for hours. So I'm just trying to
give you a look at – ohhh.
Okay, probably not the bubbles. I'm trying to give you a look at some
of these
different brushes.
But let's just undo that one
and let's go and get a
different brush.
Okay, this one is pretty good.
And for all these brushes you can
adjust their opacity and width.
And of course you want to keep
changing your colors as you work so that you get some interesting
designs happening.
And I want to fill this one in pretty fast so this is usually a pretty good
filler tool. And let's make it pretty wide
and let's start filling it in.
Of course we can always go back to our Seurat dots which are the dots that we
to create the background.
I don't want them to be
very wide but
you can slowly
just draw in this area. And of course I can draw in any one of these and right
now I'm working in the top left corner. But
I can change and draw on any one of these that I like because wherever you're drawing
you're just repeating
all the way around the image.
So I just kind of work and build up,
that was
not a happy brush. If you make a mistake just tap Undo and wait as
it undoes. It's probably a little bit delayed here because I'm screen
recording at the same time.
I'm just going to change the color
and yes, let's just dial down the width on this brush. This is a
really nice little brush.
And I tend to
use it
a bit
but sparingly because it does really, really funky things
so I'm going to see.
Sometimes it's really not clear what adjustment does but
varying it just has an interesting effect.
I think I need
this to be wider and certainly adjustment is going to
help me here with this brush. This is really a nice little brush.
I think I'm going to
darken it up and use it
quite a bit for my heart here.
So I'm just looking at building up
an overall heart shape.
And let's go back
to this brush
and I think it's a small width. I'm just testing this one here.
We'll just undo it.
This is a brush I like to use at the very end
because it has this really nice little spiky effect.
So sometimes I'll use it for sort of like the star
because if you just tap
you can get this like star
happening on your
heart shape.
So let's call that good for now. You can
obviously work on
something similar yourself. Let's have a look at what I've done in the past.
I'm just going to save this
and we'll go back and have a look at some of the hearts that I've created previously.
This is one of the hearts and it has that same
effect down the side.
Let's just open this up. I'm not quite sure why it's upside down but
let's just go with it.
It's got those little edges around it.
Here's another set of hearts. This has been drawn on a
white background but again it's had these black hairs around it. Now I'm thinking
with the black hairs I might have erased in the middle here as I was working
after I did the black hairs.
But this
mirror drawing is
really interesting. You can get some really, really nice effects with it.
So there's a little bit of an introduction to
the wonders of OmniSketch on the iPad. And as I've said it's probably
one of my favorite applications for drawing because you get these wonderful,
wonderful brushes
to play around with.
