    desertvictories said: hello there! I love your art and am hoping to get into digital art soon. May I know what tablet you use? Or if you have any advice to give for a total nooblet? Thank you and lots of love!

    Thanks! I personally use Wacom and have been for around 7 years now. My current tablet is a Bamboo Splash:

    Now normally I would never recommend a Bamboo over an Intuos, but thankfully Wacom has merged the two under the name of Intuos and Bamboos are no longer relevant. Although if you’re looking for the same quality for a much better price I suggest Monoprice. I know a handful of very talented artists who use them, so don’t be worried if there’s not all the bells and whistles that Wacom provides. The sizes of a tablet that’s up to you, I loved my giant 12x19 Intuos3 but it was pretty clunky and taking it anywhere was a hassle.

    Getting used to a tablet can be tricky, it’s very similar to a blind drawing exercise and adjusting to the coordination can very from person to person. Hotkeys are your best friend! Learn and become comfortable with important hotkeys such as Undo, Redo, Save, and the drawing tools of your choice. It cuts down on a lot of time and helps with a better workflow. This is just personal preference but get a tablet where the pen has an eraser, I can’t tell you how painful it was to go from my Intuos3 to a Bamboo without one.

    And of course practice, practice, practice! Tablets are a blessing but can take a little getting used to. Don’t get discouraged, work through the roadblocks. If needed, drawing a rough draft on paper and scanning it in can really help keep your drawings loose. Getting too caught up on details with digital art can end up hurting rather than helping. Remember though, having a certain type of tablet can only help but so much. A lot the quality will be coming from your hard work and dedication!

    Tiny tip:

    Try to always draw on a higher DPI (dots per inch) like 300. You can adjust this when you create your new file. Let’s say we have two files open, both 8.5” x 11”. One has a DPI of 72 (standard for digital images), and the other has a DPI of 300 (minimum for printing). 300 DPI allows for more information to be stored in the document, and lets you zoom in much farther than 72 DPI. Higher DPI is typically for printing but it has an added bonus; when you size your image down to 72 DPI to upload onto a website it will look much cleaner and crisper because there’s more pixels to condense. Helps reduce any irregularities in lineart!

    Sorry if this was a bit long winded. Good luck with future digital art, I hope this helped! 

     
  3. OK IT SENT. 

    Really though this company looks awesome, its a small corporation that makes like pool toys that’s here local and they want a graphic designer to do like flyers and designs for packages and they are so lively. I don’t wanna sound full of myself but I think I have a nice chance at it
