oh god so I just saw the most adorable movie and it’s name is The LEGO Movie. Even if you’re not a big kids film fan/LEGO fan and if you’re an artist or animator half worth your salt you’d at least check this brilliant film out!!!
See below answer about me being completely lazy: but I tend to stick with Photoshop for most digital sketching and color work. I’ve dabbled with other (awesome) paint programs in the past, but because of Adobe being a bit work standard I’m in PS all the time and it can be a pain hopping from program to program and relearning hotkeys, etc. I HAVE however been completely converted to a Manga Studio believer/user when it comes to really pro looking line work since it totally knocks PS out of the water.
I also use a Wacom Cintiq for fancy times and it’s one of my few expensive artist buys that’s totally worth it.
I am completely, utterly lazy and not fancy at all and still use Stumpy Pencil. That’s about it! ;)
On an additional note I also work at a large resolution (at least 150-300 ppi) even when using that brush, and if I keep the brush tip small I can still get fairly clean lines but with a softer, more natural feel and not awkward harsh that the default brush has in PS.
Just my general mood at the time! On a serious note - and not for attention but for general information* - I’ve been suffering going back and forth between depression and other very bad episodes, and had a good spark of positive energy one afternoon so wanted to utilize it well. When I lack a direction for art and just want to draw in general, I almost always turn to original characters of mine like Peridot (who is depicted in that particular drawing).
*Because depression sucks and anyone who knows the feeling knows how great it is to do nice things and if you’re reading this and also know these feels then go out and do a nice thing for yourself please! :)
It’s crabs all the way down!

It’s that time again!
