Trent Kaniuga, our favorite YouTuber who uses the heck out of SketchBook, has another great video on his channel. He’s been making videos for people who use SketchBook for some time, and in the past few months he’s rolled out some “SketchBook Basics” videos based on a lot of requests from his viewers who watch him use SketchBook all the time but who don’t themselves use the app (yet). He’s making it easy for others to follow in his footsteps with this video:

Trent’s Teachings: Real-World Expertise

Trent is an expert in a lot of things. In fact, he has a Gumroad page where he sells big box sets of tutorials with exclusive content, deleted or alternate commentaries, tips for pursuing art as a career, and bonus wallpapers. He’s a teaching machine, and we’re always thrilled when he includes SketchBook in his lesson plans. This video is a freebie, and it’s for people who are getting started with digital art and covers a few important questions people seem to ask when they start using digital apps to make their art:

  • Why are my drawings blurry?
  • What’s the difference between image size and canvas size?
  • What’s the best default size when creating your art?
  • How many reference images should you work with at a time?
