TOW-3 Drawing Chains and Metallics by verticalfish TOW-3 Drawing Chains and Metallics by verticalfish
This week's tutorial is on something I took a long time to get right (or at least good enough that I was satisfied with it) - how to draw chains & metallic surfaces! I learned this just from reading and absorbing the techniques of different illustrators, as there aren't that many tutorials about esoteric topics like this around.

Sorry I missed last week's TOW. I was overworked! I'll make it up though - I'll do another TOW this week to catch up.

Be sure to check out my other tutorials:

Btw, I checked out your Background tutorial vid. It made me think about getting 3D rendering software since I like to nitpick on detail. lol


Anyhow, I just have one question. I noticed that you construct your panels on SAI. Do you do it manually by drawing individual lines per page or do you have a tool that places panels there? I can think of a few other ways you could've done it but I just want to be sure since you seem to be pretty fast when making these.

I draw individual lines per page. I start of with a blank document that has a rectangular black border about 100 pixels wide, then I use the shift key with the brush tool to draw straight lines for panel divisions with a brush of about 20 px. diameter.
