I presume you've already been asked this but I'd really like to know what brushes and program you use. Tips for anyone struggling with digital artwork (such as myself) would also be great if you have any! //If I missed an FAQ page or something and you've already addressed this, I'm really sorry!!
Hey anon! No need to be sorry!
I use Manga Studio 5 ex which I presume not a lot of people use compared to sai and photoshop so sorry if the brushes don’t match up ^^;;
These are the brushes I use at a daily base and they’re all from Manga Studio 5 ex that I twicked a little bit. I use the oil paint flat brush 2 for sketch, line art, and base color, oil paint flat brush 3 for blending, soft colors, light and shadows, and lighter ink from the india ink brush category for simple backgrounds and misc.
As for tips, I personally look up various artists that I admire and observe their artwork. Tuning into livestreams and asking for advice personally is a really good way as well. Overall, practicing and observing I would say is the best way to improve.
I hope this helps and I wish you good luck!
