I've just been watching the awesome work done by Heather Martinez (as per your link in the last newsletter: http://heathermartinez.com/tagged/Visual%20Toolbox)
While I understand most of what is done in those videos, how does she do the 'painting in' effect. For example the globe gets 'painted' and the NAEA logo builds.
how do some items appear on the screen (i.e. not drawn)
how did she do the taping down of the page
and what about the thick chalk drawn line
Sorry to ask a lot of questions, but it feels like I'm missing some tricks.
Hope you can answer at least some questions!

items can appear instantly if you reduce the draw time to zero. You can also use the move-in hand instead of the "normal" draw hand
My guess is that the taping motion was done with custom hands and an invisible element drawn on top of the tape

Wow Heather, what a detailed response. And no problem about not answering soon, I didn't expect a reply to be honest!
I have a project on at the moment with a local artist who is drawing the scenes by hand. I had already worked out that I needed to scan the drawing and use illustrators LivePaint to create the vectors. We have also been working on guide lines (set to transparent) so we can direct the SV hand to draw lines rather than shapes. I'm going to have a go at how you described to paint in the colour.
I love your techniques and if I manage something half as good as yours I will be happy!
Brilliant response Heather! Thank you for taking the time out to explain all of that! :) I'm hoping to apply some of these tips to my own work and even draw a few images myself, so your advice is just terrific. Thank you very much!
