Basic Digital Painting Questions

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?

Q:What canvas size do you recommend?

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;

Do you draw for a living? Or are you more design based? I would like to pursue a career in producing digital art and was wondering if you were in the industry so I could grab some tips from you Neko Emoji-16 (Blush) [V1]

I've noticed a picture or two of yours has been posted to the website Tickld. I wasn't for sure what your policy on that was, but the user(s) don't seem to be claiming your work as their own, and your signature is still intact. Just wanted to give you a heads up since I noticed.
