Hi:

I am looking for some tips on hand sketching carbon fiber, here's a sloppy quick test:

I am using some canvas fabric and a black prisma for transfer + 123 shading markers, but then I have to add like 8 layers in photoshop (very little left of the markers ) , would love to do as much of it in analog, also is there's a quicker or simpler way of indicating the carbon fiber you know off ?

Thanks !

if using Photoshop i would simple grab a 2d image of the carbon you want and then skew it to fit your perspective.

there are also custom brushes in sketchbook pro that simulate CF is you use that.

For CF I just do it in photoshop. Render the object how you want it then use a multiply or screen layer of the texture. I've drawn it by hand but it is tedious. Check out this simple example. The arch support shank has the texture quickly applied.

Thanks ! @yo @cwatkinson.

Yes, seems that digital is the way to go, some sort of trophy for both in manga studio :)
