    whats wrong with deviant art:confused:
    I'm not adverse to the community itself, and there are many members that are excellent artists on there, but I've often found that the tutorials confirm to unorthodox approaches, which can be counterproductive to one's improvement of drawing. :sadnod:

    I can relate to this because it took a while for me to adjust too. The tactility of traditional media is evidently lost with a tablet. Nevertheless, after much insistence, I'm finding myself using a tablet for much of my work nowadays. Prior to going digital, I used to paint with oils at large sizes (had to stand and climb ladders), thus the nature of my work has changed. This has been enforced by working commercially. In advertising and publishing, a digital mockup is far more practical and accepted. The other principle advantage is that you're not limited by how much detail you can implement, and that the handy Apple+Z (or Ctrl+Z) is a godsend. :tongue:



    I've never been one to conform to rulings, nor was I a particularly good student. I'm something of a free spirit that can interpret what's required of me. At school, I think the general consensus was that I was highly capable, and perhaps even bordering on exceptional in the arts, but an awful student to teach. :o:
    I will admit they are very handy and I like them a lot but I just find it more fun to draw stuff out normally, with a tablet I usually end up getting bored something that doesn't happen much when I draw.

    I was never classed as very bright at all in school, other than maybe this year (and art in general) I have always been just average which mainly thanks to my laziness and not wanting to do things I didn't like (eg I missed over half my welsh lessons in year 9 thanks to me making sure my saxophone lessons were always during my welsh lessons) so I was never and still not considered one of the good students.

    I'm not going to buy any books :giggle:

    And I've always been interested in drawing, I've just never been any good XD One of my GCSE Graphic Design pieces was essentially me copy/pasting (via drawing) Hokusai's "Great Wave off Kanagawa", and a couple others (I think I also used Red Fuji/South Wind Clear Sky).



    Hands and feet are a pain in the ass XD But it's essential I get them down :p:
    There's nothing wrong with tracing, it can actually prove beneficial.

    Anatomy is always difficult to get right. Thankfully, it's not so pertinent with manga. :giggle:

    I've just gotten used to relying on Adobe Photoshop and, to a lesser extent, Corel Painter. I have a lot more control over what I'm doing, and obviously there is a lot more flexibility. In a way, I've become almost spoilt, because I constantly revert back to earlier stages of my work to make alterations. This could be the line-work or the colouring. In the case of my manga, the texturing can be altered or even the lighting. Due to these advantages, I've become almost reluctant to use traditional media. Having a 30" display is also very useful, so I can slouch in my chair, with my tablet (which is an A3), and just do some work. It's also a lot cleaner. :tongue:

    I was never classed as very bright at all in school, other than maybe this year (and art in general) I have always been just average which mainly thanks to my laziness and not wanting to do things I didn't like (eg I missed over half my welsh lessons in year 9 thanks to me making sure my saxophone lessons were always during my welsh lessons) so I was never and still not considered one of the good students.
    Yeah, I was only considered "capable" because I had a good memory and would put the work in during the exam period. At the end of the day, regarding you achieve what you personally want from school, that's what matters. :smile:

    Oh, I didn't think a translation was needed. It's simply 'Oh well'.

    I'm shorter than you.:s:
    But your height (or overall size) is what makes you so cute. :yes:
