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
pretty sure these are barely different from the default settings though lmao
also i was using the default pencil at one point too i think
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!! 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!
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’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!
uh some people asked about the cintiq companion so i’m going to write some of my impressions and stuff from the past day that i’ve been playing with it!
