TOW-1: Photoshop Motion Lines Tutorial by verticalfish TOW-1: Photoshop Motion Lines Tutorial by verticalfish
It's been a while since I did a tutorial! I had some time so I figured I might as well make a new motion lines brush, and while I was doing that, I decided to make a tutorial on it.

I might do tutorials on more interesting things like lightning and glow effects, and advanced zoom techniques later.

Check out my other tutorials:

hmm, very interesting. I have seen/tried other techniques for making motion lines and this(in a recent test) has proven to be one of the easiest I have found yet.

keep up the awesome work :)

How fortuitous that I stumble across these right after fussing about these very issues last night for my next comic page. Pose anatomy, focus/speed lines, and velocity.
How did I not find these before? ;_;

Up until now I've been experimenting with GIMP's "Line Nova" function, but the lines are too uniform. This should make it so much easier! xD;
Now I just need to find how big GIMP's max brush size is...

With all the detail in your comic pages, I can't help but ask, about how long does it take you to do a page? From sketch to final?

It varies greatly depending on what I'm drawing, how many panels, where the scene is (background wise), and if it is a 2-page spread. Also, I tend to draw 2 pages at once because it's faster for me that way. That being said, I'd say the fastest I can go with my current style is maybe a page per 3-4 hours (a double page every 6-8 hours, that is).

.....holy crap ._. that's FAST
I wish I had the time to sit down and practice and hone my skill, it takes me like...a day to get a sketch looking decent, and then another day or two to line and shade it.

Yeah, I've had 2 years to refine my method, so I've gotten pretty fast.

>_> I get it now.

I recently read "the breaker" and found it inspiring.

Except it uses this trick alot instead of bothering to use detial for the surrouding area.
