happy 2 days late birthday miku! i tried out medibang paint pro for illustration fully for the first time today. It’s great for sketching and adding blur filters/text/stamp brushes (since photoshop goes as slow as a snail carrying a sloth, which is going nowhere) but doing full pictures is quite the challenge honestly ;;
It works a lot slower than SAI and it still doesn’t have as many important features (for me) that SAI carries. However it does allow me to do a lot more new things now, not to mention it works across many devices, and I hope to use it more in the future!
So I'm in year 9 at school and this year I have to choose my options for GCSE. In really stressing out about it because this kinda determines my future and stuff and I don't even know what I want to do. I mean I know I want to be an author but I'm unsure about side careers and I don't want to make the wrong decision, do you have any advice for me Dave?
The education system is absolute crap because it makes you feel that way. You can ALWAYS change what you want to do, school does not define your future. You can learn things on the internet.
If you want to be an author, ignore school and practice writing, learn about how publishing works, see what genres you enjoy writing are most popular, read blogs on writing from people you consider talented writers, start a blog of your own, collaborate - none of those things will come from school.
