So I see a lot of new artist use the blotchy way of drawing on paint. Not saying you're not trying, but some people really don't.
Sorry to be a little mean but spending 2 minutes on a picture does not make it decent art.
Sooo~ I got my tablet a few years ago, but before then I did pixel art with a mouse and then moved to digital art still using a mouse. And doing this video I almost forgot how I used a mouse...and normal paint. Xd
But I know it's hard and sometimes time consuming. So I made a video for those who may want to try using digital programs. To start you need two programs(both free) MS Paint that comes with any windows and Paint Tool SAI.
Ms paint is really easy to get nice curved lines in, since it bends smoothly. And the reason why to use Paint tool sai is the line tool is the most simple and easiest line tool I've come across. Gimp and Photoshop line tools are horrible! And over all, Sai is literally just simple all around. Heres the video!
It's an hour long, and windows 7 paint is really annoying to me. Which is why the curve tool is always messing with me. And I was tired so I may look like I get lost sometimes lol. original.livestream.com/xxiris…
SAI has shortcuts and i'll put the ones I use most.E
Press E to switch to Eraser. And hold it to temporarily use the Eraser.N
Switch to pen.Ctrl+Z
Go back on what you just did.(I use it a lot when lining)Ctrl+Y
Goes forward on what you went back on. (Opposite of CtrlZ)
Now to download SAI you could look around on the internet but you might come across a site that may give you a virus. So I put my SAI on Mediafire so you guys don't have to worry. www.mediafire.com/file/a8h2s5r…If you have any questions, feel free to ask!!
