Hi Aron, Do you use a cintiq to draw on at home or just at work? If you do use one, how big is the actual drawing surface? Do you like it? (Sorry I know thats a lot of questions but I was thinking of buying one later this year.)
Hi! At work I started with what I *believe* is a Wacom Cintiq 21UX (or something very similar) and I loved working with that particular shape and size of tablet, that when I was offered a larger, wider one— I stayed with the one I started with (out of personal preference). The one reviewed here looks like the one I work with. I’m not really sure what the actual drawing surface size is, but wherever there is screen, you should be able to draw :)
At home I am currently using the Yiynova MSP19U mounted on a monitor arm but after I replace my PC (an HP workstation that is about 10-years-old and seems to no longer start after a thunderstorm/power outage we had during a big storm the other week *super frowny face*) I want to focus on upgrading to a Cintiq if possible, because the touch-strips are one of my favorite features.
I absolutely love the Wacom Cintiq, and it’s an amazing tool.
I hope this helps! :D
Hello! Quick question - I'm soon going to be working more in Photoshop with a Wacom tablet and I was wondering if you could recommend any brushsets or brush resources. What is your preferred brush setting? Thanks a bunch and I really love your art!
Hi and thank you so much! I used to work with a specific set of brushes i’d collected in the past few years, but Elena and Olivia Ceballos mentioned making their own brushes and I started doing this more and more. Nowadays I tend to take existing brushes (like the basic ones found in Photoshop) and tweak them as I go to get them to do different things a little more often. Starting with the dry brushes in Photoshop is what I usually do.
If you’re interested in making your own brushes in Photoshop, here’s a nice tutorial that walks you through the basic process of doing so. Experiment and mess around with settings like brush shape, scattering and such. There’s a nice little preview in the Brush Presets window thingy that gives you a general idea of how it behaves. If you make something you like, you can save it :D
If you’re looking to download some cool ones, there are lots of stores and webpages out there you can either buy brushes from or download free ones given out. DeviantArt is also pretty cool and people upload and share their brushes. Just do a search for "Photoshop Brushes" on there and while there’s a lot to look through, you should find some gems! :D
Since you’re going to be working with a Wacom Tablet, you will start to see how brushes will behave depending on the pen tilt.
I hope this helps! Have a rad day :D
Hiya! I just wanted to say thank you for the follow back! I feel like I've told you before over FB, but I just LOVE your art sooo much :D Hope you're having a great day!
Hi! And thank you so much!! I hope you’re having a rad day too! :DEdit: I meant to reply privately but forgot to hit the little button D:
