haha, I've never really had much trouble transitioning btwn traditional and digital... but sometimes i catch myself trying to ctrl + z a pencil stroke, lmao ;u; and once i was like "let's switch to a new layer...!" when i wanted to start coloring some lines and then i was like "...oh"
you only have trouble digitally?? that's strange, haha. I found a pretty good site for figure drawing practice if you want me to give you the link, I found that doing a set of like 2 to 5 minute long anatomy practices every now and then really helps me, and I think you can limit it to dudes. :0 plus they have really cool lighting in some of them. Not as good as actual figure drawing irl, but not too bad for when I want to get some practice in. =u=
OMG I KNOW YES it's so nice getting a stoic, together character that finally shows some emotion, ahhh. STRIDERS. Do you know Sugar Free?? It's a really good davejohn fic and I was reading it earlier and this kINDA REMINDED ME OF THAT hhhh. So precious<3333
yeaah, it is i guess! i guess it's because i havent been using digital art for that long, i got a tablet in december so oh? that would be really handy, thank you so much! (:
yyyeeeeeees! it shows what they've been hiding >D ohHH YES ive read that its one of my all time favessss!!! i love the conversation between dirk and dave a lot and when dave and john g o t together i was like YES GOOD even though it was gonna happen
ahh, I see. You'll get used to it pretty quick, I'm sure! I've found that finding a program that's easy to use helps a lot?? I started with the ones my tablet came with and I haaaated them, they just weren't set up in a way that was logical for me. The nice thing about programs like photoshop is how customizable they are.... you can move things around and have the windows you want open, and find brushes that work for you. =u=
AHHHHHHH YES what a great fic. I was gonna art for it but then this week happened D: D: D: hopefully I'll find some motivation to art for my fave fics soon............. i've just been so tired lately. TnT
AW REALLY i love rec'ing fics yES SHARE FIC LOVE<33 i'm steadily gathering a fic-rec tag of epic proportions on my tumblr, it's pretty excellent.
HMMM yeah the main problem with the free software was that it was photoshop, which i was already used to using the regular version, except it was set up differently and not as good??? it was missing some stuff i was used to having and some things were changed, so it would've taken time to get used to. and i was just like, i have ps, why bother. That was the main problem. i've talked to people that really like elements though, and it's a step up from some other free software you can get. i was just spoiled?? haha.
