      You do not clarify what regular is to tablet used, as drawing tablet is regular average, if you meant a mobile device as iPad or Surface or android, that is not same device or use,

    When you use a touch pad tablet, you are suppose to use stylus pen tool to draw with, and depending on software, it may not work as well as a graphic tablet with pen, if you were using finger, then you won’t get acuracy, and the the software App has to be art savvy compatible,

    Plus since you have better luck with hand eye coordination on paper, the digital screen and App have to be calibrated for better accuracy, there are Apps for brands of mobiles like Procreate, Sketchbook, and ArtRage, try those, or find simple free version apps, but use of stylus is needed,

  • How do I know when to charge more for a digital art commission?

    Best answer: Tell him that the $1 rate is for the first commission. Tell him subsequent commissions are usually $5, but you will cut him a deal of $4 per each additional.

    I’m not sure the purpose of $1 commissions and why you’d tolerate this kind of behavior. If you’re trying to build your book, do volunteer work for a neutral nonprofit charity.

    Does anyone have any pen recommendations that feel like you re writing with a pencil and it s like the ink is a stick of graphite and youcan t tell the difference feeling wise? I write a LOT neater with pencil, like the mechanical bic plain ones and I need a new pen. I use the pilot v5, and I like the ink flow and the kinda- scratchiness, and it makes my handwriting a lot neater compared to a biro, but nowhere as neat as a pencil. It s running out and I don t mind it it being the smoothest ink (it would be nice), but really care about the pen as close to feeling like a pencil as possible. Thanks

    Best answer: This is a difficult question to answer as we know not what kind of things you enjoy drawing...Hmmm...
    Personally, I would like to see a really scary/cool monster, protecting a small and dainty human, who he is in love with and wants to protect with its life.
