hi el~ im the anon that asked u where u got ur cintiq;; and thank u very very much for encouraging me!! uh i hope this doesnt sound rude because i really didnt mean it to!! but how did u get enough money to buy the cintiq?? IM SORRY IF THAT SOUNDS OFFENDING i meant like did u save up or did ur parents lend u money? thanks in advance~

hi again! you’re very welcome! im glad i could encourage you ~ w~

nah it’s okay i don’t find it rude, actually i’ve been really fortunate lately to have been given a lot of money. my grandad gave me $1000 after he sold his yacht and i got a big money grant from centrelink to assist in uni and living expenses. since i’m studying illustration i figured its justified to use that money on a tablet which i’ll use in a (hopefully) future career in illustration ;;; i plan to make some of the money back when i next get a break from uni though

Are you not gonna use photoshop anymore?

there are some things sai does better than photoshop but there’s also a lot photoshop does better than sai
so I’ll probably switch between both programs depending on what I need in a drawing

Hi El!! How much was your new cintiq? And did you get it on amazon or another site? I want 2 buy one but its hella expensive and i dont think im good enough to get a cintiq

hi!! I got mine directly from the wacom online store, it was like $3000AUD
don’t feel like you’re not good enough for a cintiq! think more in terms of how a cintiq will benefit you. for me personally it was entirely for personal reasons rather than how I felt about my technical skill. because I hate being confined to sitting in room whenever I want to draw digitally (it brings down my mood and also hurts my back if I’m not conscious of my posture) having a portable digital art device eliminates both of those issues, and as a result I think it’ll make me a lot more productive
you don’t need to have any kind of set amount of skill for any kind of drawing tool, and if you feel like it’ll benefit you as much as i feel it will benefit me then it will probably even help improve your skills. but yeah they are expensive so it’s up to you to weigh those pros and cons!

When you do your cheebs do you like using lineart? ^^ OR do you paint it like normal but..with a cellshady look.

yeah I still draw those in the same kind of painterly process in that it’ll all be on one layer and such. sometimes I draw using separate layers for line art and shading but I haven’t done that recently, I find it less fun

i've just listened to the music you have here for the first time and i noticed that you have some really nice music playing. how do you find your music?

I’m glad you like the music! it’s a playlist I made that I feel is really relaxing to listen to
I find music primarily through games and movies/tv series that’s I’ve been playing/watching. I know off the top of my head the music on blog there’s songs from pokemon, animal crossing, professor layton, amelie, noir, song of saya, clannad and madoka magica
I just really like soundtracks!
