yeah!! what about you????? are we gonna… hang out????
hehe, i actually DON’T draw on paper often. i never did until like, 2012. i’m trying to get better at that though! when i DO draw on paper, i just use a series of japanese brush pens.. shamefully, i don’t know any technical details on these pens other than ‘this is a thin pen’ or ‘this is a thick pen’. i haven’t used pencils at all until recently… i kinda have to for my new watercolor adventures!
P.S. there’s a kinokuniya that i get my pens from here in SF, but i hear you can get them pretty easily at JetPens!
hmmmm, i HAVE used it, but i think the honest answer is that i just don’t know enough about real painting to effectively use it! The only real drawing i’ve ever done has been digital… I used watercolors for the first time two weeks ago! It’s too hard for me to use, but I bet it’s pretty swell for people familiar with the mediums they emulate?
I’m using a Wacom Cintiq for my drawings! They are crazy expensive, but worth the price imho. There are way cheaper alternatives that are just as good, too! Yiynova and Monoprice both offer really good tablet monitors at a fraction of the price!
As for software, I’m currently using Photoshop Creative Cloud, but really, any version of Photoshop will do!
I have like, a billion brushes!!! TOO MANY BRUSHES!
however, most of the ones that i use in my work is from Kyle Webster’s Brush Sets! they are just too good and really cheap for the value! completely worth every penny!
