    Do you create digital art? Do you use a tablet? Which tablet do you use and what software? I have an older Wacom Intuos tablet that I use with Artweaver Plus version 5, which is an old version that I bought a few years ago. I'm not what anyone would call a real artist but I try. I still don't understand my software completely. It's meant for advanced artists I guess and I'm definitely not one!

    Post some art!
    Video is OK too!​

    Either by posting it from a third party (copy and pasting image url) or by posting it here first. I personally post it from another website. Imgbb is a great option for that.

    I primarily do digital art since it's much easier for me. A prime example of my digital art is my current profile pic. I've also posted some other digital art in my art album if you're interested in checking those out.

    I use a program called Autodesk SketchBook, because it's really easy to use and navigate, and also because it's free and came with the laptop I use lol. I also use a wacom tablet, I forget which one it is specifically, but I do recommend the brand in general if you can afford it. :)

    Hey!

    I use a huion gt-220 v2 its really good and not overly expensive for a screen tablet. I use clip studio pro (I got in a sale so it was down half price which was fab). I find using some video tutorials really helpful as well as watching artist speed paint where they talk about what they're doing. I'm just starting to learn how to work with values when colouring and greyscaling work which is helping me to think about colours and colour theory better.
    My biggest tip is changing the background colour on a separate layer to a neutral grey when colour instead of white so help you see more clearly where you need actually paint in the white if that makes sense?
    Its just practice practice practice! Would love to see some of your art!!
