OK. this goes above and beyond, and what is it only your second piq? you would be at the top of the charts with a few more piq's like this!
by flippy13, 15 June 2011 15:04
Thanks flippy13! It might be my second piq but I've drawn A LOT before that one. :)

so, hows that Wacom tablet?
by flippy13, 16 June 2011 20:09
The tablet (Intuos 4 L) is GREAT! It would have been extremely hard to make that pic up there without it. :) It wasn't cheap, but it's totally worth every cent! If you wanna know more about drawing tablets, just ask me. :)

what size of intous tablet do you have?
by Toyumono, 27 October 2011 06:13
L = large. :) It's about size A4.
by BlackDragon, 28 October 2011 14:33

Wow this is amazing! For how long does it take to get this good? :3
by User, 26 March 2014 02:59
Thanks! Well, I was 18 back then when I drew this and I started drawing when I was maybe 2, so... :P It takes time, I can tell you. :D Anyway, I think it's possible to get this far in a few years (maybe even in a year) if you study art and study hard. But it's actually a matter of training: I have never really studied art, I have just drawn A LOT! :D And that's my advice: draw a lot! It also helps really, really much if you try to learn why things look how they look, like how light and perspective works. There are certain rules that apply to everything we see and it's necessary to know them. Here's a few links that I think are very helpful and teach things really well:

ctrlpaint.com -very good tutos, also for beginners

Feng Zhu Design Youtube channel -really pro stuff, but also helpful for everyone

Sycra Youtube channel -very good tutos and explanations

Hope this helps! :)
