As is the whole board not getting a lot of attention. Though recently there's been more delicious art and I think traffic is improved too.

On that note, MERP AND PASU WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU GUYS ;________;

(so, uh, anyone mind joining the channel since we're on the topic of reviving it and all)

What's the problem?  Can't get it to load or something?  You were after the one with the EoSD charas, yes?
I think it's the only image on there, and I do see Remilia and Flandre. A thumbnail loads just fine and when I click on it, I get taken to a photobucket page with the same thumbnail. Is that thumbnail all Pasu wanted to post?

Vento and i are gonna pixiv chat in 30mins or so after she finishes food if interested

How do we bump our art threads without doubleposting?

For that matter, if we have something new to post, is doubleposting alright?

Double post if there's a reasonable amount of time between. Edit otherwise.

I... don't know? At this point it's been in Touhou Projects for about the past three years, so I guess it's fine there?

Ventopasu showed me those a couple months ago, including that very review, but then realisation hit that shipping costs over here surpass the price of the thing by a bunch and make it expensive orz

Hello,
first of all, I'm roughly 70% sure that this is the wrong area for this kind of thread, but it still seemed more suitable than others since this is where artists converge. If it's still too wrong an area, please move the thread, I definitely wish to apologize for any trouble caused by this.

Anyway, I spent some time thinking about presents for Christmas and I think I actually had a good idea. My sister's had her fair share of problems and even though she's mostly recovered, she still spends her days doing nothing overly significant. Despite that, she's definitely one hell of an artist, but her current situation has left her without any real drive it seems. She's got lots and lots of drawings on paper, but her drawings simply remain untouched and unseen by anyone, which is definitely regrettable since this is one skill she could definitely put to use. However, she's never really gone and shown her works to anyone because there isn't anyone she can show them to except for the family, if even that. I think it would be a great thing if she had the means to show her works to people on the internet since that would enable her to display her works and have people give her their opinions on them.

I was trying to figure out what to do about that and I think drawing pads might be the answer. Am I right in assuming that you can use them to create art on computers, bypassing the whole "scanner is too small/quality is too bad"-problem? If not, what other solutions would you recommend?

Assuming that I'm right, which drawing pad would you recommend to a skilled artist who isn't overly good with computers (yet, I think she could get used to it)? What's more, is any additional software required and does the size of the pad play a role? I looked up a few on Amazon and some people were complaining about certain pads being too small. I'm mainly looking for something she can use to figure out the basic workings and actually create something that would enable her to display her skill.


That's about it for now I think, thank you very, very much for any advice on this matter and sorry if this is, indeed, in the wrong area. If you need any more information, please don't hesitate to ask me, I'll try to give you as much information as I can if it can be of help.

If you live in the US, I suggest getting a monoprice tablet. They have good reviews, low prices, but sadly unattractive shipping fees outside the US.

You're talking about drawing tablets, right? :v actually she could also go the painstakingly way of Photoshop's line tool, but.. eh..

Drawing programs wise, there are freeware like GIMP but I would really just suggest, er, art programs that usually cost quite a hefty sum but can be found online free if you look in the correct places  :derp: For a beginner in digital art I would recommend Paint Tool SAI, it's very user friendly.

Ah, graphics tablets? Wacom and Monoprice are excellent tablet brands - I think there's one other great one (especially for Mac users) but I don't recall the name.

I don't really like using GIMP that much, but it is able to get the job done.

SAI is a popular program but it is Windows-only, though it can run on other OSes via Wine. Conversely my preferred application (Pixelmator) only works under Mac OS.

For cross-platform programs, I'd go with Sketchbook Pro, which from what I hear is pretty good for the price.
