So my first drawing tablet just arrived in the mail and I was SO pumped to get like I was literally squealing on the walk home but then I started to draw and now I feel really bad because I am doing really bad drawings and I wondered if this is just a normal thing for people going from real to digital art? Cause now I'm just looking back at my old stuff and I think it looks horrible :(
posting this publicly to spread the info that it’s TOTALLY normal
there is something i’d say is…a transitional learning curve? here was my 6 month transition from my first tablet, drawing immediately after getting it, and then the 6 month progress:
it just hit me that next year i’ll have been using a tablet for a decade, so it’s become another appendage to me. but i can still remember using it for the first time, and how frustrating it was.
so give yourself time! no medium is easy to slide into right away!
