Anonymous asked: You're a star, thank you so much for the tips! My sisters got me an art tablet for Christmas, and I love it, but I think I'm kind of scared to use it! :P I'm pretty sure the more I use it, the more comfortable I'll get with it :) thanks again for the advice! :D
no probs!! no fear! u’ll do well don’t worry (:
Anonymous asked: Your artwork is incredible! You should be so proud of yourself ;) do you have any tips for someone who's only just started using art tablets as opposed to pencil and paper?
;___; t-THANK YOOUU ANON (♥ω♥ ) ~♪
aah tips huh.. Well i’d say that the first step is getting used to it! AND HAVE FUN WITH IT there’s no magical formula, just draw on it everyday, all the time! Get to know each other inside out! after all, if taken care of properly, your tablet can become your lifelong partner cuz they’re so durable! (i use a wacom intuos 3 which has been with me for about 7 years now)
To get the same kind of feeling u get when u draw on actual paper, u can always tweak the settings to your favor and i pretty much advise anyone to just dork around with it until u get smth that suits YOU. to get an idea here are my settings:
HAHA NOT MUCH but of course, u can do without all these and just go with the default haha i know some artists who paint perfectly well without altering these.
ALSO THE MAPPING it might help to customize the area on which u draw on (personally i shrink it down a lot so much so that i barely have to MOVE MY WRIST just to paint across the whole canvas) i just feel like this helps me do things much faster, so (o・・o)
and the ACTUAL PEN NIB i duno if it matters now with the newer models but, my intuos3 came with white nibs n black nibs, and i found the black ones more suitable if you’re trying to get used to the feeling of a tablet (it’s slightly rougher? not as smooth n springy like the white ones so it kinda emulates the feeling of paper better?) AND remember that pen nibs can wear out too, but of course, depending on how hard u draw x’D so if it starts to feel funny better check to see if it has worn down on one side HAHA
LASTLY, TAKE ADVANTAGE of everything digital art can give u that traditional paper n pencil cannot SUCH AS LAYERS, COLOR PICKER, ETC plus, learn all the shortcuts n maann play around with everything until u know your art program like the back of your hand n u guys can work together to create BEAUTIFUL SHIT
(—FFFFF SORRY THIS TURNED OUT SO LONG i hope it’s enough but dont hesitate to ask anything else)
and wow this is actually PERFECT TIMING cuz next week on FRIDAY i’ll be at the PC show at MBS singapore as one of the demo artists for Wacom SO YEA feel free to come by then and i can tell u more if u want ok!!
