I want to buy a Bamboo but I don`t really know what size it`s better to choose. Can you recommend any?

very helpful tutorial,i find it great that you give us such tutorials now

I just wonder where is the difference between the nib pen and the normal pen.
Also what canvas size do you usually use to draw,I heard its best to draw on a big size and then shrink it.
Will you make a tutorial how to shade skin, i really love your skin shading :3

Hm... maybe I'll try these first before using openCanvas.
Maybe I'll produce finer lines which is a problem I'm encountering right now.

Oh... really? You don't recommend using vectors? I honestly recently started using them because it made saved me a a whole lot of time back then when I first started drawing. I remember I had no clue what layers or vectors were. So everything I drew back then was just one big layer and my god was that difficult... I think I wasted an extra 5-6 hours because of it... not to put anyone down but vectors make drawing a lot easier without having to redraw a crooked line over and over when you can use tools to straighten it more easily. Only thing I can think of is that you can't color without adding a layer over it...

this is for those who owns a cheap tablet or expensive,
if one person is using a mouse, they i can honestly give vector as a best choice tool
but if you have tablet, you will pretty much see the difference in using vector and a natural stroke in ur hands through tablet

i was like that too back then, trying to convince myself that vector is enough
but like they say, people evolve and they will know the difference by their experience.

The only difference I really see is that when using vector layer, my strokes are actually neater. And if I screw up on a stroke, I can easily fix it without having to redo it several times until I get it right.

Not trying to sound rude,I'm just stating why I like the vector layer more.

like i said, u will see the difference soon, its not me who should convince you at this point, its you who should

i cant force someone to change, nor buy the cheap tablet

well some people can't afford expensive tablets, plus all forms of art and all forms of creating art are valid

I've been using vectors in my drawings and with "that" reason. This really contradicts my way of drawing but I can't say that this is wrong. What I did is that I followed the path of "easiness" therefore, I did vectoring and now is having a hard time with the brush tool. It really is better to use the brush tool more than vectors to practice the different flows of lines and it took me a "clicking of Hews' tutorial" to realize that. ( stupid me... )

Really. Thanks. ;~;

I'm actually using the same tablet on the tutorial, but I find it rather expensive in my place, anyway, worth it! :iconyaomemeplz:
