I use ps cs2 and a mouse cause I don't have a tablet, are there some magic settings that I don't know of? :D (I have NO idea haha) cause when I try doing lineart or something it looks like straight out of paint haha. also, of course, I looove your art!:) -itisasnogbox"

oh thank you that you trust me enough to answer your question ahaha ;v; I am currently using an ipad to draw but yes, I have also experienced that in the past especially when I first started in digital art…


well here are some tips/guides that I can share based on what I experienced and what I know :) I’m not really a pro at these things but I hope these somehow helps ;v;
- check the brush settings in PS, try using a softer brush setting first if you have a hard time using a thicker brush (but not the soft airbursh type)

- if the lines have hard/pixelated edges, try checking if it’s set on brush or on pencil (because paint usually have pixelated lines/strokes)

- or use a bigger canvas resolution (around at least 600-800+ pixels)

- if you’re like me, I usually use a consistent-stroke brush and usually on a 100% hardness (the most opaque one) they come out cleaner if they are bigger in size and especially on a large size canvas (e.g. like 5-10 pixel size brush on a 1000+ pixels canvas) because those little jagged lines are usually zoomed out thus becoming less visible :)

- try practicing consistent strokes :) as much as possible, practice to draw your strokes/lines faster to avoid the usual shakiness of the hand (that leads to those little jagged lines) if you can…. this is usually where the tablet really helps the most (more consistent strokes)

- you can also try pen tool :) tho it’s still hard to use at first ^^;

hehe these are just some tips I can share and remember ^^ don’t be afraid and hesitate to ask for other help~ and I hope this somehow help you heehee thank you and have a nice day uvu~ 💕

1. my notebook and pencil (where I draw them sketches and drafts) and my ipad (for digitalizing the sketches)~ and yes, I haven’t used any PC program (Photoshop) for drawing ever since my laptop (kinda) broke and lag :) …. I think, almost all of my FT drawings are drawn on ipad ^^

2. prepare yourself here is my HUGE list of things inside my pencil case haha!
- 8 staedler pencils
- 3 G-techs
- 2 ballpoint pens (red & blue)

15. well, I’m not really sure if these are actual artist behaviors but….they are pretty unusual ahahaha
- I usually bring with me at least a notebook/paper and a pen/pencil wherever I go (sometimes even when just going to the mall) ahaha
- I can’t help but sketch whenever I feel inspired even on a piece of reciept or a tissue :)
- I watch shows usually only to use their clothes / and other things as drawing references hehe
- plusssss I can’t help doodling on almost everything XD like textbooks and on my notes :))) but I don’t do vandalism maybeee, oh welp, rarely ahaha

lostrollingpotato said, "Hello there :3 When I joined the Fairy Tail fandom, I just waited for the next season to come out. Even though I did have the manga for some of them, I didn't and still don't have the ones that haven't yet been animated. I just want to know if it's better to wait for it to all be animated, or If I should read the manga. What should I do?"
-------

oh hello there :) that’s an interesting question~ well, in my honest opinion I think reading the manga is much better because…
- it’s the original story (thus canon)
- some things in the manga are not in the anime
- ^ some part/scenes of the manga are usually edited/changed/removed in the anime (usually for general audiences)
- you’ll be way ahead/updated with the fandom :D
- it’s more exciting to wait for the next chapters since you’ll never know what’ll happen, there could be endless possibilities :D plus trollshima
- new manga chapters are out online every week, like anime episodes are out every week… so waiting is almost the same
- sometimes the published manga/s volumes have special content and omake~ so make sure to check it out in the manga volumes ^^

but anime is good too because…
- it’s animated!
- sometimes anime episodes are compiled manga chapters (usually 2-3 chapter in one episode) thus more part of the story in one sitting :D
- it’s nice to watch the filler episodes too
- (for the dubbed) less reading :))) loljk ;P

BUT PROBABLY THE BEST WAY IS TO READ THE MANGA AND WATCH THE ANIME!
… if that’s not too troublesome for you tho :)
- you’ll get to compare the anime and manga differences
- you have the chance to know the next story/part in the anime if ever you want more ;) especially if it’s a manga chapter based episode
- you’ll be updated with the new content in the fandom! anime AND manga ^o^

ahahaha hope it helps~ and hope you have fun reading and watching fairy tail :)
