shut-up-youre-lowering-the-iq:Hey, I was just wondering, what kind of drawing tablet do you use? Sorry if you already said it somewhere!

I have a small intuos 5 touch. I like it, but I really want to get a Monoprice.

 I’ve also had a bamboo pen and touch before (a great starter tablet).

unitedstatesofdamn:do you have a tutorial on how to use paint tool sai properly?

there isn’t one way to do it really. that has a lot to do with experimentation and your own personal style. also looking into color theory. 

personally i just keep a hard brush and put the occupancy down low and maybe use the water tool here and there.

For Windows.

My friends and I occasionally have this problem so I’ve taught them this simple method that takes less than a minute as opposed to waiting several for your computer to restart(especially if it’s slow).

What’s great about this method is that sometimes restarting your computer wont fix the problem, but this usually will.

MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE ALL YOUR ART APPS.

This is important, otherwise the changes wont take effect. If it doesn’t work the first time, try again, sometimes it takes restarting it more than once.

For Windows 8, search for “services.msc” in your apps and click on the result. Continue from there!

Now go draw, babies!

You are a LIFESAVER

Ive been having so much trouble with my tablet driver and this sorted it right out just now.

Anonymous:Hello! I love your art and I was wondering what brushes do you use to get that lovely painterly look?

manlysporkle:

thank u

i usually use the spread brush for lines and then i mess around with the blending modes, using either brush or marker, more often the brush :B
i use low blending to blend the color in quicker with fewer strokes sometimes or when it’s in tiny spots

and i sometimes use the flat brushes that make it a bit more blocky

then it’s a bit of messing with the settings to find whats a good feel for ur brushes and whatnot
im not that good with explanations but i hope it helped somehow?? :’0
