Darktiste Sketchbook
I once compared drawing with a mouse to cooking with a hammer and screwdriver instead of proper kitchen utensils. I had to do it for several months when I first started out on my very first game job (working as texture artist on Prince of Persia 3D), and it was manageable because textures is very different from sketching and illustration--it's a lot of photobashing with some additional painting on top. But I hated it because there isn't even pressure sensitivity so my left hand had to be on the numbers keys all the time to control the opacity level. (Fun fact: that's how Craig Mullins worked too in Photoshop. He started out using a mouse, then later when he got a tablet, he did not use pressure sensitivity with his Wacom stylus because he prefers to control opacity with the number keys. I don't know if he still works that way and I highly doubt it, since digital painting software has advanced a lot from those days, and he works a lot in Rebelle these days, and there's no way you'd get the most out of its brush engine without pressure sensitivity.)

When I finally got the Wacom tablet (1st gen), it was a huge relief and it felt infinitely more intuitive and I could draw and paint with far more intricacy and nuance and expressiveness.

I don't know why there's an insistence on not getting a graphics tablet, especially when they are dirt cheap in this day and age and choices are abundant. Even the entry-level tiny ones have at least over a thousand levels of pressure detection and will be far superior to using a mouse. I have students who used the cheapest entry-level stuff and when I tried them, they felt no different from my much more expensive professional-grade tablets, except with smaller footprints and fewer programmable buttons.

Just dropping by to say it's great you're back at drawing and have left that A.I. stuff behind, you did the right thing.

It just not truth i am leave it to that. Personally i would rather have a open discussion but i feel that my sketchbook is not the place for that to a certain degree because it can take alot of space and i would rather have this like i said as my personal space to express anything i desire regardless of the confusion it might generate.

In the end people are not necessaly going to read everything and i will still have people coming with assumption and i will be stuck to untangle the image they created in there head of me if i let it be people assume those thing to be truth just because they think what they previously knew of me still apply or is truth even if could come from a bad perception.

I would rather not spend my time correcting people but people are wrong all the time it not new but it hurtful sometime when we don't correct what someone say about what we do that is wrong about the reason why we do the thing we do.

Even if i am trying to be transparent not everyone as the same picture of me that live inside there head. Ultimately it probably that i shouldn't be sharing as much as i been but it simply not who i am.

So i must accept that it the price i pay for my free speech.

I sincerely don't know what hurt you about saying it's nice to see new things from you but I apologize, it was meant as something positive.

I am not hurt aslong as i correct inconsistently in the statement that was made that are not accurate that all. When you said that i left Ai behind that just not accurate. What i don't like is that you have believe to have the ability to know what i do outside my sketchbook. Just because i posted Ai sometime doesn't mean it always the case.Sometime i am just playing around with the vocabulary of the prompt and i generated so much image i just won't post every single thing if only you know how much Ai image i generated.

Don't apologize unless you meant to hurt someone and know it wrong. The best apology is to do better.

I which i knew what was going on in someone head or what they do behind the scene but unless they tell me there just no way to know unless someone that know them tell me about it and even then how reliable is it... 

I can't hold something you don't know against you.It not easy getting to know people it take patience and the fact it done on the internet add to the challenge.

You misunderstand: I apologised for you being hurt, I didn’t (and still don’t) think what I wrote was pejorative in any way, shape or form. So “doing better” is irrelevant here. I stand to what I said: It’s great to see you creating again as opposed to sharing a.i. generated images, which is less interesting (to me). In other words, practicing your art is much more likely to improve it than not practicing it, nothing pejorative or remotely insulting here. 

But:

No, no, no. That’s not it at all. I said:
It’s great to see your drawing again and left that a.i. stuff behind => in your sketchbook underlined and bolted for emphasis. This  sketchbook thread so the comment is related to what’s in here, period.I

Quote:I which i knew what was going on in someone head or what they do behind the scene but unless they tell me there just no way to know unless someone that know them tell me about it and even then how reliable is it...


Well, now you know. Turns out you got upset about something you imagined which wasn’t there in the first place. All is well that ends well.

On the first page of your sketchbook, you mention having a bamboo tablet:

Quote:10min 1 min pose using bamboo tablet and photoshop cs6 i just start trying the tablet to day using posemaniac


Do you still have it? Or is using the mouse a preference to using a pen?

Nice work with the gemstone, very solid design. I think you used a soft brush for the lines on the outline of the skull, and it doesn't gel well with the rest of the linework which is hard edged. I would use a hard edged line instead to keep everything consistent. And I agree about investing in a tablet, it's absolutely essential - you'll work faster and get way better results in the process!

I did only use a hard brush the softness come from having a change of mind and resizing thing which cause loose of pixel when thing get bigger.This a initial sketch so the line quality as no importance at that stage beyond being dispherable by myself.

Thank for passing by.
