Is buying a used tablet any good? I'm getting an intuos pro m, and I've got the chance to buy it half the normal price which is a significant differance. On the other I wonder if it won't be used up or what not. I have yet to ask how long did the previous user have it. While on the other hand I just feel uneasy, as if being denied untoched, virgin device. What would You suggest?
Wacom tablet are general quality and can be bought used, but look that you get the pen with extra exchangeable nibs (the thin tip of the pen), since they are rather expensive (up to 15$ for 5 little pieces of worthless plastic), that the surface of the tablet is not worn out too much and if the usb cable is directly connected to the tablet (not interchangeable like Intuos 3) , check for its condition. Also you should rather ask this in the question thread, while you get probaly more answers with this thread, it can be deleted within hours, since tablet threads are semibanned.
For A4 drawings I tend to use 2B for most of the drawing and something like an H or 2H to draw details in the light-shape. I used to use a 4B for my general drawing but it doesn't give the same kind of sharp push as the 2B does. If I'm working larger than A4 then I might use something softer to start with.
I tend to work really light at first and slowly build up definition throughout the drawing. I try and focus on separating the light and shadow shape, using a softer pencil for the shadow shape and a harder one for the light shape helps with that. I've... Comment too long.

>>2384749 Mostly 2B; there's nothing nicer than a freshly sharpened 2B pencil, imo. I'll start with that, and use a 4B and 6B when I need to get down to darker values, because as much as I like starting with 2B, it doesn't get dark enough to finish the job. I don't really use anything other than those three. I've tried using some H pencils for lighter stuff but I hate they way they feel.
Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises. Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up.

So my personal opinion is that between attending art collage and self teaching, self teaching is definitely better if you are smart about it. Between self teaching and attending a good atelier program, atelier programs win out by a long shot. The Atelier programs I can recommend are The Florence Academy of Art, Angel Academy, Swedish Academy of Realistic Art and The Repin Academy. I attend one of these and have frequent contact with students at the others, they all have have good instructors and produce highly skilled students. If you want to learn how to properly draw...

Hey guys, about a week ago I and my partner launched our web comic "Death, Acceptance and Everything In-Between". I know it seems like shameless promotion (and to some extent it is) but we're really aiming to find the most raw criticism that we could get. I'd really appreciate it if you took the time to read it and give some feedback about whatever you think needs improved.

how do you hold your pen/pencil/whatever? Pics pls
Because I really can't help but wonder something. i mean shit i wonder a lotta things but yanno
Could the way I've been holding it since as a child be affecting my drawing? Pic related. Sorry it's a little harder to tell the difference, but to me, it is a huge difference.
Left pic which is the "correct" way that I never learnt is pretty much holding it between your thumb and index. It feels really stiff to me and awful and all. Right is holding it between my middle... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
