Foliage Sketching with the Lasso Tool by daPatches Foliage Sketching with the Lasso Tool by daPatches
A quick breakdown of how I sketch with the lasso tool. Now you all know just how lazy I am lol..not really, I hate to demonize any tool. It’s just a super generic technique I’ve sort of become obsessed with. Making sketchy blobs look like things.

Put this in the "other" category because anything with a lasso tool can be used. From Photoshop to DA Muro. It's fun to play around with! Sorry for any typos, I made this really fast and Photoshop has no spell checker than I know of XD

On tumblr!

They can be useful to use INSIDE your selection! XD

But yeah, searching through and picking out brushes is a big pain in the butt. They also suck to keep organized T-T

I used this in a recent pic of mine, and as it didn't turn out as good as yours, it looks pretty nice and is fun to do!

Yay! I see that! :D

Next time maybe try making your shapes and then shrink them smaller so they look like smaller leaves and shapes :) That will give the illusion of foliage more. You've definitely got the "squiggly shapes" thing down!

It IS a lot of fun! Works for grass too!

This looks fun, and also a lot tidier and streamlined than the ways I've tried drawing foliage in the past. I'll be sure to try this out, thanks for posting!

Yeah I have a hard time going in and just brushing everything in from the get go. I tend to "chicken scratch" around too much which feels really untidy ^^; This helps me get around that and get stuff down fast without having crazy brushstrokes everywhere if that makes any sense.

Hope it helps ya out!
