1. Class intro: Hello skew share students in this class I'm going to teach you basic digital illustration with this app caught concepts. Nowadays class is designed for beginners so you can learn to draw. Even if you have no prior knowledge to draw on concepts. He is vector at we have some really nice features and concepts is one of my favorite drawing apps. So one of the features that it has is it has an infinite canvas, which means you can keep on drawing and he will not run out of space. And because this is a vector AB, you can zoom in all the way. Annual audit will still look really shop. So in this class I'm going to show you the user interface and then go into some tutorials to show you how to draw, showed a work flow, and show you how to share your work after you are done with your drawing. So let's jump right in. 2. Find and install Concepts: To follow along with this class, obviously you will need the app. So if you already have the app installed, you can actually skip this video and go to the next lesson. If you don't have to add, you can actually find it from the app store on your tablet. It's available on iPads, on Android tablets, and on Microsoft's phase devices. So you can download from the website. Just go to your web browser and type in this address concepts dot APP, you will be brought to their website, which at the time of this video looks like this. So look for the download buttons. So this app is available from the Apple App Store, Microsoft of Android and Samsung Galaxies DAW. So I have an Android tablet here. So I'm just going to click on, Get it on Google Play. And it's going to launch Google Play Store. And you can just install it from here. I have already installed it. So that's why it says here open. But if you don't already have the app, you will have to install button here. The second way to find and install an app, of course, is through the app store. So in this case here, using Android, so it's the Google Play store. Just type in the name of the app concepts and look for the logo. And there will be an install button here and just click on it to install. The such an installation process is similar on the apple and draw Microsoft and some song app stores. 3. Understanding Concepts User Interface: Hi everyone, welcome to this two part video tutorial on how to sketch with concepts, a drawing app that's available on iPad, Android, as well as on Microsoft. Now this app is free with basic features. However, to unlock all the features, you do need to k. So in this video, I'm going to go through the user interface. And in the second video, I'm going to choose catch from start to finish to show you my workflow, start out with some important things you need to know. So concepts is actually a vector drawing app. That means you can actually zoom in all the way and the resolution of your Outlook will still be very sharp, very detail. You may see some texture here. These are actually textures that are applied on to the vector lines. So regardless of where you zoom, all these textures will be very details. So that is actually the main selling point of this. App. Audit files are saved onto the tablet. There's no clouds sinking. So that means if for some reason you need to delete the app, make sure you export the files onto the file system first. Otherwise, you're gonna delete the app and the files along with that. So that obviously is going to be a disaster. And with iPad, unfortunately, the files that you export out, they cannot be opened on concepts app that's running on Windows. However, for Android, you can actually exploit the false out onto your Windows machine and you can continue working on evolves on Windows. Hopefully the developers can make the files that are created on the iPad at d double on Windows as well. Because right now the file extension for the false here, its concept and the file extension share for Android's concepts, concepts supports activist policies such as the Apple pencil or the Samsung as pan, which means it supports pressure sensitivity as well as palm rejection. Now if you are using a tablet or US dollars that doesn't support prejudice sensitivity and then there will be no pressure and there will be no palm rejection. However, you can still draw with concepts is just that lines the thickness. You're not gonna get any variation with the aligning of thickness. As go through the user interface. The user interface on iPad and on Android, it's pretty similar. However, on Android it's missing some features which I'm going to talk about video later on. So this is the welcome screen. And here you can create different projects. In each project, you can create multiple falls. So let me just create a new drawing. This is the canvas at the top left here. These are the tools you can select this I actually customizable. So for example, if you want to have three pens, you can actually put three pens here. I have two pencils here and a chalk here. And this is the place where he can change. Stroke just by swiping left or right with the stylus to change the thickness of the line. This is opacity or transparency and this here, this will allow you to meet your lines smoother or straighter. I go with 0% or something very low so that the lines, they will fall exactly where the pen tip is. To change colors, you just have to tap here, this circle and you see this fly out color pellet. This are the colors you can select. This are actually from the core pig colors system. To customize this palette here, you have to click and hold the button in the center. You can create your own pellets or you can choose one of the pellets that are really here. If you tap and hold onto the color palette here you can see it becomes ingredient. For the Layers palette. You can actually move this around by pressing and holding it down and just move it anywhere around the screen you want. Now, this sauteing, you can choose between Automatic and Manual. I highly recommend automatic because it will create Lee as depending on the Tuesday and you use so for example, now I'm going to choose a pen to draw with. Notice how it automatically switches to depend layer. So now when I draw with the pen, the pen lines will only appear on the pen layer. And now I'm going to switch to drawing with a pencil. And notice the layer automatically switch to pencil. And now when I color, when I colored this, everything will go onto the pencils later. And this is very nice because when I color, I like to use pencils, so I don't have to do the manual switching or this is done automatically. And this is one of the main reasons why I like this app so much. Here's a closer look at the Layers icon so you can tend to visibility on our own just by clicking I icon. And if you click on the layer itself here, you can select all the items on the layer. You can lock the layer, copy. The objects on the layer, trashed a layer much down, or you can rename layer. And this is the transparency of the layer. And another thing you can do if the leaders is to quickly hide all the other elements on other layer. So for example, here, I just wanted to focus on my line. I can double-click this layer here. And a hop tones, they would disappear because they are on another layer. And to bring everything back, just click again. Ones, these are the tooth are free to use. You can choose pens, pencils, marker, watercolor, airbrushed, fill, and dotted lines. And these are the selection tools. So you can choose one or many of these and put them in the 2s palette. And if you need additional drawing tools or Russia's desire, well, not free, but many are actually quite good, such as the splatter brush. Past those pencils, additional pencils, additional pens, sprays, AB Raj, and a harpoon. I bought all of them because. These brushes, they are really nice. So how do you bite it? Brushes all see what are the features you can bind. You see these wouldn't hear approaches click on it. And there are two ways to buying. One is through the monthly subscription service where you have access to all the features and 2s. The other is to go with the onetime purchase and just buy whatever tools that you need. So for me, the onetime purchase makes more sense. It's also cheaper because well, it's a onetime purchase. So I bought the essential sat and additional brushes. Audit tools that you buy on the iPad, unfortunately, will only remain on to iPads. So iif, you are using concepts on Android and on Microsoft. You have to buy the 2s again. So that's quite unfortunate. Here at the bottom left we have this precision pellet, which allows you to turn to greet on and off, allow for you to have snap options. Measurement 2s. This is what happens when you drove with the measurement tools. You can see that measurement there. And guide allows you to draw with guides like this. Top right here you see export and import. So when you click export, you can exploit the fall into sudden fall formats. However, to export the falls into all the formats that are available, you have to pay. So I actually paid for all the file formats here. Let's take a look at import. So for import you can import certain pre-defined shapes or you can buy, I'll symbols and them. When you click on the settings icon at the top right, you'll be brought to the settings page on this are actually self explanatory. I just wanted to talk about the lot size. Now this is a vector absolutely features and infinite OD bought. However, if you do want to have a fixed size on bought, you can enter the dimensions here, you know self, and you can enter the units as well. Let's click here and fall Scala's. So I'm using Apple pencil. There is precious sensitivity and you can adjust the pressure levels here. You can customize finger action. So when your finger is on the display, you can choose the type of action that can happen if you are using an active style is like the Apple pencil or pen. Maybe you can choose Penn canvas. This allows you to move the canvas around without introducing a strays strokes. You are using those DOM robust helices. Then maybe you can choose use active tool which allows you to draw with DOS dialysis. And you can customize the double-click functionality on the Apple pencil. Here I changed it to delete or slice. And this are the other statuses that are supported concepts that's going into gestures. So for gestures, you can customize additional finger gestures on the important ones are here. So I can do a two finger tap on the canvas to undo. For three fingered hat, I have it assigned to show it a color wheel so that I can change colors very quickly and fall to fall finger tab I have it toggled interface elements on, all off. So you can see here, there are a lot of options. You can choose to assign two to three all fall finger taps to access the eye dropper audit color picker, you have to tap and hold onto the canvas on cue to eyedropper appears. Those ADA important user interface elements you should know now if you are using Android, Well, some of the features on not available, more specifically, this color palette here, this is not available and is precision option here, this is not available. And import symbols, it's available. And if you want to export files, some of the file formats are not there. We've Android. Alright, so in the next video we will draw and I'm going to show you why I love this atlas so much. See you in the next video. Bye. 4. Drawing with Concepts: And now we draw, please download the reference for those so that you can follow along. I have actually provide us several reference photos. So if you need additional practice, you can download all of them for further practice. The photo that I will be using will be in this particular one. Alright, that's opened the app. And let's create a new fall right before we start. Make sure that the tools you have here and is palette, they are the same as what I have here. Basically just click here and choose dynamic pen. So we've dynamic pen, you will be able to draw thinner, thick lines with our precious sensitive distalless. If you're using a stylers are pan that doesn't have prejudice sensitivity. It's all right. Just that went on drawing the lines. They will not be thin or thick. They would just be off consistent with. So now that we have this dynamic pen here, mixture, the collar is set to black, pasty is set to a 100%. And also the sorting here, it should be automatic. Let's start by drawing the pot where the bears on this 45 degrees. This is 45 degrees. We foot curve. It should and here, just below this point here. Don't worry if you are not able to copy exactly what you see from the reference photo because the focus of this tutorial is actually on understanding the workflow. So for this line here, it curves towards this direction. It goes all the way up here and turns here, ends here where it is, curve is. And we have to bear. So sometimes when I am drawing, I still make mistakes because when I'm drawing, if I lose concentration, that's where I will make mistakes. But don't worry too much about getting the likeness. Just enjoyed a drawing process and try to understand what concepts can do. K. So we have to bear here, let's draw the H here. And now we have this beak shape. We can draw the shoes we didn't shapes such as these blue stripe here. That goes all the way down. Oops. Now to undo, you have to double tap and sometimes are where my finger and my, this part of my hand touches in registers as a double-tap and undo. Notice how curvy my line is. A line doesn't have to be completely straight to give you the illusion that it's treat k. So now we have this part already drawn. Let's give the site of the bear some some thickness. Nope. That's undo. Undo. Let's give it a thickness here. Okay. And we've despotic done that's drawed a strap here. Does stretch, you end somewhere around here. This is the midpoint and this is the other h. So let's draw all. And a strep should end at the bottom of the bear, like the bottom of the barrel here. And we have that blue color thing as well. If you are using Scholars that doesn't have any prejudice sensitivity, it's alright. K. So here we can draw like this. And now that we have this big ship here, we can very easily draw the shape that Sweden thin, which is this part here, which is going to end here. At the time of this video, there is no paint bucket to fall concepts. So in the future they may actually add that feature. So we're now drawing, try to close up della lines. So you see here I have open gaps. If you want to use pink bucket and you need to close up all the lines so that it's easier to few colors later on when the app updates with paint bucket. Okay, so let's have the strep continue downwards here. It's going to end here. And the angle here, it's going to continue like this with this trip here. And it goes all the way up. And we draw a blue Patek gain K, that is this part here. And fold a backup the shoe we are going to draw here and goes down like this. It was done along the way. Oops. I need to draw a bit closer to the first drip goes down all the way. And I'm going to draw from here and joined a lines. And now I can draw the thickness folder shoe. So this part here that I'm drawing, this is the white area. Leave some space for the blue dot. And the white area will become smaller and smaller here. And this is the blue pot. Okay? And again, draw this. So let's see if we have missed out on anything. I think that's about it. 5. Colouring with Concepts: Now that we have this drawing, we can color it. So in order to color it, lets choose this to her debts call field. Alright, and we're going to pick a color that's pick rating. You can choose any writ as long as it looks writ enough, doesn't have to be exactly the same Carl that I'm using. K. So now if the few to, we need to draw the shapes to color it, I know it is. Does color doesn't look right enough for me. So let me let me select, Let me just get my hand here and choose this item picker. So when you tap your hand and hope that you will let you choose item picker, color picker or less O2, choose item bigger so they can pick this object and then go into the colors palette again, and this time round, choose a different color. So I think, yep, there's it looks like a brighter color to me. So you can change to whatever color you want and tap away. Alright, so this collar, it looks better. Now we can use the fuel to, again, to basically collar everything. Oops, why is this color and not matching that? Select the object again and change it to that color. Oops, notice what happened here. I actually selected a line instead of the colored shape. So let me undo that again and tap away mixture this time I select the correct item and change the color. I'm not sure why sometimes the colors would default to some other Kotler anyway, just make sure you choose the right color before you color. So now you can go ahead and color everything that is read. And notice I have some gaps here. If you're more careful, you can actually close up all at gaps properly. Or you can just draw multiple shifts like this and then combine those ships. It works as well. The downside to using multiple ships who combine into one beat ship is if you need to change the color of this shape, you would have to use the less O2 in the state. So now for example, if I need to change this shape, which is made up of three smaller shapes, I have to use the lasso tool. If I use the item picker, it's only going to pick up one of the three shifts that I have insight here. And you want to be able to tell just by looking at this ship that it's 3D shapes. So it's good to just draw one ship for one ship rather than use multiple shifts to create one big shaping. Okay, so now we have the red. I filled in, we can use we can pick a blue and colored the blue part. I've just fill in all the blue color and now let's choose a route for the bear. I'm going to choose a lighter brown. The reason why I chose the lighter brown is because I wanted to use the darker brown for the thickness of this bear as drawed white here. So let's pick white and draws the goal here. And this barrier seems to be wearing a t-shirt which is white in color. And see there's a rate here. So I want to pick a rate as broad stripes. Now, let's draw the stirrups With the pen to. So once you switch over to depend to, you will notice that the layers will jump automatically to the penalty year when you're sorting is set to automatic. So let's draw this line. It's too thick. So I went to undo it, double-tap, make sure the lightest, thinner. And then draw the lines and do again because I needed allies to go from H to H. And then I can draw the, Hence here. It looks like there is some brow pot here, so make sure you are still using the field tomb. I tap and hold onto the brown colored here and make sure it's color picker and release. So now you are using the same brow as this bear. So I'm going to draw here. I am not using another Brown because I want to keep the color's selection there used to be simple so that I can achieve color harmony much easier. So now these are shoe, it's looking a bit flat. So let's add some shadows with the field who selected. We need to select a black. Make sure you set the opacity down to, in this case, maybe 50%. Now the shadows will go over the colors. So I need to create a new layer. If you do not create a new layer, the shadows will still go over the colors. But later on, if you want to adjust the colors or change the shadows, it's gonna be, it's gonna be difficult. So now with this shadow colors selected, I can draw the shadow ships. So once the shadow ships are. Added, you can see the form of the shoe starts to come a life. Now this is a vector apps so they don't really have those sharp, sorry, soft feather effects. So the shadows are, you draw here, they are going to look kinda hot. H, which is sort of like the manga style or type of shadows. And also going to add some shadows to Hsu here to the bottom of the shoe. Okay, notice some areas are white, is will break the illusion of the shadow. So we need to feel this up. And notice what happened here. And that's because the layer, sorry, the colors have been set to 50% opacity. So when you have 50 over 50, it's going to sort of multiply the opacity and it's going to look a bit weird. So in this case, let me just undo and draw the shadow again this time Raul. The mixture, I draw the shadows exactly on the line so that I do not have any white caps later on. Okay, this looks all right. Now this shoe seems like it has some patents on it. So let's draw the patents. We have some white patents on the rate. So now that we have the sauteing set to manual, make sure we have mixture, we click to deaf few layer basically the layover, the colors. Once you have too many layers, it's going to get a bit confusing as to what are on the layer. Soil may be good to rename the layer. So in this case here, you can just rename this layer has color, which I have done. So for this layer, Let's rename this as shared dose. And now to add patterns and designs onto the red part, let's go to the color layer. And that's choose, choose o. Maybe let's just create another layer just for the design. So let's create a new layer here. And choose the dynamic penn. Make sure you choose white. And we can draw here. Okay? Just add some designs here. And here and here. No. If for some reason you don't see the white, it could mean that your layer is not above that Hallelujah, so you just have to move, mislead the layers of the calendar year. And let me rename this as well, these assignments done. And I wanted to add some designs to the flat part of the shoe, the sole of the shoe. So I'm gonna choose dynamic and GYN and make sure I have a pest d set to a 100 and I'm going to choose black. So for the sole of the shoe, we have some lack patents, some field colors, some are actually align art like this. One good thing about having layers is so for example, let's say you don't like the design of this pet buttons. You can actually turn off the design and create another new layer. To add are the types of design. So in this case here, instead of the original design may be, I can add shapes like this. So having layers, it's very versatile. K. So let's stick to the original design. So I'm going to click here to turn off this layer and ten visibility back on to the original. Notice I have one strange to hear. I wonder where that story is true is anyway. I may not know where this is on the layers, but I can still select it. So let me just tap on the surface and choose less or to make sure it's less so and here it's mid to select all yours. And then draw it. Draw selection over the stray stroke and click the dustbin icon. So once you have completed your drawing, one thing that I always do is to make sure to create a new empty layer and pushed at layer right onto the top so that an event that I were to open this file in the future and I accidentally add something on drawing. It may not be something that's obvious like this. It may be a little dot here and their army not notice. So in the future, if I do need to use the file again, I can actually just turn off that layer and I would have to original art. This is basically to prevent yourself from adding strokes. And yes, so this sketch is done. 6. Changing styles: Let me show you other cool things you can do with concepts. So with the earlier drawing, I'm going to duplicate this fall so that I don't work on the original so that I can protect the original. So here I am going to try a different coloring style. I'm going to use pencils in state. So I'm going to delete the collar Lee year here. I'm going to delete that designs and delete the shadows and other layers that you do not need. And keep della line art. So here I'm going to change the ink lines to pencil lines because concepts is a vector AP, this lines here, they actually vector lines, which means you can zoom in really close and you can still get really sharp lines. And you can apply a different style to it align. So in this case here I'm going to tap on the surface. Don't release your finger. Select lasso and make sure you select All. To select all the layers and do a selection of the shoe. And now go to the 2s palette here and choose a different tool. So let me choose soft pencil. And notice right now the lives they have changed. Whew this pencil style and line, it's too thick. So in this case here may be, I want to change the size of the lines. So you can actually do so just by changing this seismic condemns smaller. Notice the soft lines here. So early on while I was drawing with the Apple Pencil, I probably have to tip the Apple pencil soda lines, they are solved. If I draw with the pan mom vertical, I would get hot each lines like this. So now I want to redraw this part. So I'm gonna tap on the display and select lasso tool and select a lines here. Oops, doesn't work. It means I will have to select the Lasso line of this, which I do not want because I may actually select other objects. So I'm going to use the item picker in state k. Once you have your finger over the item, It's going to highlight, release it, deleted. Do that for all the soft lines that you want to change. Oops, I need to make sure I'm in item picker mode, literate. And here as well. It'll split it right now is that now that those lines have been deleted and as choose the pencil, soft pencil, and make sure I choose black, a 100% opacity. So I can draw this back in. Now this line looks a bit darker, so maybe let's have it at, let's choose a darker gray, something that mimics graphite. K. I think this works better. And I have a line here as well. And here just to connect the lines. Alright, so now let's try and color this with, let's color it with this brush caught chalk. Now, this is not free, as in you do have to purchase it. So maybe that's not used that let's use a tool that you can get for free. That's choose me be soft pencil again. Yeah, that's just choose soft pencil and create a new layer for the colors. That's just time Raul, that's renamed a layer straightaway. And make sure you OK, hollering on that layer. So I have rate selected again and that's make sure the lie is a thicker. Oops. That's coloring it like this. And yep. So now notice the style is different from earlier when I had inclines. Using this pencil for coloring, I have to shade it like a real pencil. And unlike earlier on, I was actually drawing the shape for the colorless. So just go ahead and color the shoe again this time with soft pencil. Let me select white to draw this pot here. Same thing for the shadows. I'm going to create a new layer and i'm going to select lack gained 50% opacity mix should a shadow layer. Let me rename this shadows. Make sure the shadow layers is above the collar layer, and then go on to colored shadows. You can actually shoot the Apple pencil if you are using one to get those out solved effects. So perhaps this might eat better when it comes to creating shadows compared to the ink. And I can create shadows here as well. Case. So again, done. Now, notice this doll and the earliest though, they look very different, however, are not actually redraw the whole shoe. I merely changed us doll by changing the style for the lines and also does tau for that calorie. Alright, and let's compare the two styles side-by-side. So when you're on the gallery page, you can actually just zooming to enlarge the icons. So this is how the two shoes look. Same shoes but in different styles. 7. Sharing your art online: Now that you have this drawing, you may want to share it online. To do so you have to export this drawing. So let's do a quick spot. There are many file formats for you to choose from. Some of this file formats. They may be locked, which means you have to pay to unlock. The basic file formats like JPEG is should be free. I'm going to export the entire drawing and I'm going to have the paper texture. And here you can choose the resolution. So 800 pixels by 500 pixels. This is a good size. If you want something even higher resolution, you can go with 300 dpi. Now if you choose really high resolution, sometimes the program may crash walk spotting. So just choose something that is reasonable. I think 300 dpi, that's good enough. Nick's just click Export. Now depending on the tablet that you're using, whether it's iPad, windows phase or an Android tablet, the export functionality, the dialog boxes, they may be a bit different. So here on the iPad I'm going to save our image and saved onto the photo gallery as take a look at what we have here. So I notice there is some cropping. So this is the actual file. You can see the left side of the shoe is not it's not included in this picture. So I will have to do to re-export again this time row instead of exploiting the entire drawing, which should work, but for some reason doesn't work here I'm going to select a screenshot and click Export again, save image. And now when I go back, I can see I have my ho shoe here. So this is how the foul JPEG file looks and format is a rectangle. Let's say I want to export this to Instagram. Instagram they use whoever format pictures. So with the photos gallery, you can actually select a photo and clean and DIT. And in this case here, let's click this crop rotate to and click this icon here. So here you get to choose different aspect ratios. I'm going to choose square, and I am going to move this square like this so that I can still see my ho shoe and click done. And now I have a square, that picture that I can share on Instagram. There are other additional export features hidden in the settings. So for example, you can add greed on today's paper. You can add different types of paper texture. You can also select the size. So let's say I'm going to exploit this to Instagram. I need to choose an output size that is square. Let me choose social media. And here you can choose Instagram post. And the resolution were changed to 1080. By 1080, which is a square. And see what happens here. That's click away. And notice there is this square box here, so this is the outbox. So when you export of photo or if you exploit this drawing, this what's inside the square will be shown and what's outside a square we will not be shown. Which means when exploit this part of the shoe is going to be cropped off. So if you want to have the shoe fit into the square at the time of this video, there is no way for you to resize the square, so you have to re-size the shoe, which I'm going to do so so to resize the shoe, just tap and hold on today canvas. Oh, I'm already is selection to so let me let's say you have the drawing to select it. Just tap and home and click the less O2. Makes sure you select All to have all the layers. And then you can scale this down. And you can tap on the ADA corner here to make sure that your scaling is proportional. Now the bad thing about scaling is when you skew down, you can see the lines, they become proportionally thicker so you can see a lot of black. So my suggestion is to actually export the file as a JPEG file and then crop it later on outside of concepts using some other software. So let me just undo here to go back to my original file. If you want to use a fixed size out, bought our recommend, you create that up but first before you draw, because after you draw it and then you create a oddball, There is no way for you to adjust a lot. And I think it's also more versatile to not use any odd bought. Just draw and then exploit your fall as a high-resolution fall and crop it. Using some other software. It's easier that way. 8. Bonus - Brushes worth Getting: Concepts is free to use with a default set of brushes and pans. However, some of the features and brushes and Panza actually locked behind a paywall. So I'm gonna show you some pens and brushes that are actually worth buying with purchasing. So define those brushes, just go and click that to here, and scroll down to the bottom. So we have the default tools here at the top. Scroll down to the bottom and you can see those paid brushes. So the first group of brushes is caught spray pins. And I like splatter, which is one of the spray pins. So if splatter, you can create textures very easily. I really loved this brush. And also if you have the sauteing for the layer set to automatic, when you select a different type of brush, it's going to create a layer for their brush. So in this case here, it actually created a spray earlier, which is nice. So let's turn this off and go to the next brush. So the next group of brushes, it's called Memphis patterns. So here, there are different types of pattern brushes. Let me show you a few more designs. Now, these designs are a bit more funky, so the US will be a bit more limited. So this one draws rectangular bricks and all the strokes they are known drawn into this costume. They year. Memphis pattern. I'll say it's an optional purchased, but I do recommend getting this letter brush. Okay, next group of brushes would be brushes, and there are different types of brushes here. So I'm going to choose soft brush, limit turnover the pattern. So when I choose add brush, one layer of airbrushed is created for me automatically. So this is how the airbrushed looks. Basically strokes where we've solved ages. Let's go to the next set of brushes called exterior walls. This is definitely optional. Let me create a new layer. In this case here, when I select a xsd, it did not create a custom the year, so I had to create it myself. If you are using the iPad, you can actually renamed customer layers or renamed the brushes, go into the settings and basically create a way for you to create a new layer automatically when you create a new brush, you can do that on the iPad and not on Android. So I'm just going to create a custom layer here. So this is exterior walls. We have horizontal textures. And exterior wall with vertical textures. Let me turn this off and create a new layer. The Knicks brush set would be pencils. So concepts do come with two pencils, hot and soft pencil is. But if you need more pencils, you can go with this set, which is quite nice as well. They have square pencils and graphite sticks, basically, larger pencils. They can go really large. Let me turn off this layer and create a new layer for half-tones. Half-tones is really nice. It creates these are very old school style half-tones and there are different density. So you can create tunes that are the dots where the dots are really tight together or it can create the dots where they are really specced out. Half-tones is also with getting. Next we have, let me turn off this layer or create a new layer links. We have pens. Pens, I would say. It's an optional for Chase to make sure that a penis larger, but they do have some pretty interesting strokes. So here again see the strokes. They have RAF ages. So if you wanted something a bit more textured, rather than using the default dynamic pen which has smooth ages, you can consider getting, getting these set of brushes called tens. These may be worth purchasing as well. I'm not sure how much is each of these sets are cause but it's a onetime purchase, so yeah, you just have to spend ones and you can use them forever. All right. The last set of brushes that I want to show you is passed out past ours is definitely worth getting. So there are different types of pastels here, dry or oil chalk, and I'm just gonna choose chalk. Now we've passed out. They will, I mean, the software will let you create a newly automatically as well. So let me switch to automatic. And yep, it does create a new PESTEL layer, which is very nice. And some of these brushes, you can actually overlay the brushes, like the sort of trends. Some of them are transparents and I'm not. But you can overlay them for different results. So quite fun to use. Alright, to recap, let me just go through the ones that I really recommend, right to Hong Limoges, run through the list of brushes, then I do recommend spray paints is good because of the texture. Spray brushes and pencils is good. Iep u1, very textured type of line art or shading. Half-tones is good. Pens is good if you won your inclines to have some texture, some live condemn and pastels is also good. So these are the brushes that I would recommend. So the funky brushes like external walls, meant this pet tens. And even airbrushing is you can get them much later after you have experimented with some of the more traditional, traditional brushes. 9. Conclusion: Alright, I hope you have enjoyed this lesson before you go, let me give you one last tip. When you are drawing on concepts and make sure you are always drawing on the correct layer. So sometimes when you click the Create New earlier at you will change the sauteing more to manual. And when you system other tools, it's not going to automatically switch to the correct layer. So watch out for that. You will want to keep your lines separate from the color, separate from the textures, from the shadows. So that later on when you want to change colors, for example, or if you want to add or remove shadows later on, it's very easy. You can just select a layer and D delete or at deet on depth specifically at without affecting other things that are already on your audit book. So make sure you have your art, your lines, Yo everything on the appropriate layer. Alright, thanks for watching this class. I hope you enjoy it. See you in the next plus By
