Worth a shot! Wonderful work everyone.
Great timing as i just finished watching the SVS classes on personal branding and social media! All 3 combined and i feel like I've got a really solid grasp!! Thank you!
Any thoughts on separating your art accounts? I am thinking about making a separate instagram solely for my children's book illustration, since my current account is mostly plein air landscape painting. I'm not sure if it would be a negative to have two different areas of work on my account.
On the plus side its more professional facing keeping them separate, but on the downside its a lot to manage two accounts, and i would be starting over just to keep my "art identities" neat and tidy.
I think the only specific thing to make sure is that it has a usb c port. (If you are getting the newest ones)
I know some people have had issues getting the 4k to display on the new cintiqs if you don't have a usb c port. (they have an adaptor but its not reliable)
Also desktops (pc or mac) give your more powerful specs for the price compared to laptops, if you want a mac buy a refurbished one from apple, save a bit of $$!
my two cents
So maybe I'm a bit odd, but I'm on the hunt to find that perfect smudge brush for use in digital painting in Photoshop.
I can't seem to get something that gives me nice soft edges, or allows me to refine/push and pull in the way I want. Or something that gives a nice texture. Does anyone else have this problem?
As an oil painter I think i have less control over my tools digitally than i do traditionally, which seems backwards.lol.
if you have a go to smudge tool, share it below!
I'm posting a few i use, in hopes that it'll help someone out there with the same problem.
A belated thank you all for your thoughts and perspectives. I've read each and every word. Wow, truly what a supportive environment!
I feel like I've learned a lot just from this thread, thank you!
