Possible start for an illustration? 

For a movie I just watched a couple days ago, I can’t believe how invested I am in it. I keep wanting to draw all the characters (SENDHELP) Because good lord, Illya and Gabby are the cutest things. I also love Napoleon, but I had to get this out of my system first before I show him some love lol.

Since this hadn’t yet crossed my dash and it looks pretty interesting.  I’m all for reliable alternatives to Wacom, especially if it means forgoing pricey replacement styluses.

All digital artists need this

paddehfeets asked:

Hello there, again! I was wondering, what art program/tablet do you have and would you recommend it for other artists? What about stylus?

Well, for animating I use TVPaint.  I also use Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere for various things, but for animating I use TVP.  

Tablet-wise, I have an old Intuos 3, which I’ve probably been using since 2005, haha.  I’m still using the stylus that came with it as well (although I’ve had to buy new nibs since then!). 

This past year I bought a Cintiq.  We had them at school and I used them all the time, but I didn’t realize just how crucial they are for digital animating until I tried to go back to my Intuos.  The Intuos is still fine for drawing/illustration (and it’ll work in a pinch if I’m on the go), but I reeaaaaaaallly need to be able to draw on the screen. 

That said, you don’t need the fanciest, newest Cintiq out there.  You can buy a smaller, portable one, and you can buy an older model for much cheaper if you’re okay with it being used or refurbished.  I bought a 21UX on ebay for $500 (I know that’s still hella pricey, but just to give you an idea, it’s about ¼th of what you’d pay for a new model).  It might have one or two dead pixels on it but I don’t care, haha.  

It also didn’t come with a stylus, but I knew my old Inuos pen would work on it just fine since they’re from roughly the same generation.  You can definitely do a little googling to find out which styluses work with which tablets, and possibly save yourself a little money.

Hope that helps!
