Reading up on great styluses for my phone that have tips that are prescise enough to do drawing with...


I'm not too impressed...

My stylus left a deep scratch in my protective case ;; good luck finding a decent stylus, there's some good ones but they're hard to find

I used to draw with a mouse
Wireless ones make it easier
Also drawing something on paper, taking a picture of it, saving it on your computer, then using that helps too

I've seen great artists who draw with a mouse, really it takes time and a lot of patience

Yeah, you'll need to find a program that "smoothes" the lines, like Adobe Illustrator

Trying to come up with adopts but the only color I'm decent at making adopts out of is brown ;; my last three concepts today kinda look the same

I really hate how people love Digital Art more than Traditional Scanned art (what I do because I hate using a mouse and need to find a stylus for my phone :P)

Like... I've seen Traditional artists get left in the dust but have amazing stuff while a digital artist who happens to have less quality art than them is able to get more attention even though the traditional artist puts more work and time into their art and the digital artist (in this situation) doesn't put much effort into their artwork.

Just something I've noticed that peevs me...

Honestly I prefer Traditional, however Digital art seems more convenient with the many brushes, tools, and the option to redo or undo

Traditional can be pricey and time consuming, but many seem to do it rather well and it surely is a shame that they get ignored

Main reason I want to upload only digital art. I wish traditional was more noticed.

I'd do more traditional art if I had the supplies
But I think people who do it deserve more recognition
They try very hard and deserve as much love as digital artists

I wish people didn't wait days to pay for things. It's really frustrating for me to not know if they're serious or not

I'm enjoying sketching lately but ONLY sketching, everything else either looks awful or feels so tedious and draining. This is not a good mindset for commissions and trades x.x

I have drawn a ton of different raptors and dinosaurs, but can't find a design that I like enough to make into a sona or even an OC. It isn't that I don't connect with them, because I absolutely love other people's raptor designs and would really like one of my own, but I'm having trouble designing something relatable to me.
