Anonymous said: asking this cause im so curious and i use a wacom bamboo tablet also and i love to draw but i suck when using it cause im a noob but ok anyways, do you use photoshop, illustrator, or....? i use photoshop and im guessing from your time lapse video you do too, but just want to make sure btw love your comics with all my heart you got talent brah and how long have you been using a tablet to be that good at using it already

Yeah, tablets are weird because drawing on them requires a different set of skills that drawing on paper. You have to train your arm to make really fast, sweeping motions in order to keep your lines from getting all wobbly.

Lately I’ve been using Manga Studio EX 4.0 because I dig how the lines work a bit more than Photoshop. I still use Photoshop for some editing stuff and if I’m ever coloring anything though. 

I’ve been using my tablet for a little under 2 years now, and it’s taken me this long just to figure out how to smooth out my lines somewhat, so it definitely takes a bit of effort to get good at it. Don’t give up!
