Journal Entry: Tue Dec 18, 2012, 7:51 PM

Here's a List of FAQ
If you have any suggested questions post below and I'll try to add those that is most requested : )

Basic Digital Painting Questions

Q: What tools do you use

A: I use Photoshop CS 6, and I work on a cintiq 21 UX

Q: What do you recommend for someone who wants to get into digital art?
For programs that I've used and would recommend are 1. paint tool sai, it's a very user friendly and it's very affordable! you can also try using Photoshop CS (any version) they are both great software to start with.

Q: can you recommend a tablet?

A: yes, if it's for fun, I think any wacom bamboo tablets will do the trick, if you want to be more serious with this, then I would go with any of the wacom intuos tablets : )

Q: How do you make the skin so soft?
A:it's not really a secret but I use the airbrush in PS CS 6 a lot to blend,

Q: what brushes do you use?
A: My latest brushes can be find here

Q:What canvas size do you recommend?
A: I usually paint at the minimum of 1200 pixel wide or height, I like to go up to 8k pixel at times just to put extra details : ) The bigger the canvas the better you can add details to your work.

Q:How long does it take you to paint something?

A: It depends, a portraits would take me 1-3 hrs while a full painting could take me up to 24 hrs

Q: what's you process?
A:I paint everything digitaly in photoshop. I usually just go straight with color blocking. sometimes I like to start off with a digital sketch and then paint over it.

Q:How do you paint, I can't get my stuff to look awesome ;w;

A: there's no magic that can make your drawings look awesome right away, it really takes a lot of practice, experimenting, and hard work so don't give up, and keep at it : )

That's all the FAQ for now, I 'll try to update it everyday. I still have lots of FAQ to post here, but it'd take me hrs if I decide to do it in one day, sorry for the wait guys ;w;

Konbanwa Sakimichan,

Would you mind adding an FAQ about whether or not you take commission work, and if so, how to obtain a rate sheet or contact you about it?  I see that this is a popular question to ask you in comments and I don't see it answered anywhere on Deviant.

I would like to discuss a possible project with you.

Did you attend an art school at any point in your life, or are you  self taught? If you have then where did you study? :)
