ssoosay Stuff / Styli and Natural Media Sketching Notes (2017)

ssoosay Stuff / Styli and Natural Media Sketching Notes (2017)

I've got a lot of styli over the years, seeing which I liked and which natural media apps I felt most comfortable with. These are the Styli I’ve decided to keep.

I got rid of the Bluetooth ones and most of the IPad ones. My favorite by far (at the moment) is the Wacom Samsung S-pen for Android (super thin, light and convenient)

I still had 3 pens from my old Wacom 12wx, so I’ve ordered an Wacom Intuos 3 that should work with the pens and my new setup.

I still need to get used to the N-Trig Surface pen (I don’t like that it requires batteries and luckily it doesn’t need Bluetooth in order to function).

My favourite paint app out of all I have tried is ArtRage (available on all platforms and really intuitive). I will just stick with ArtRage and focus now on sketching and getting better, instead of the ‘techy’ stuff.

As well as making daily digital art, I should be doing some daily ‘ssoosay Sketches’, I want to improve my construction / forms for the human head and body (get better at a western retro animation style). I just need to get practicing!

I’m watching YouTube again while working, but more educational or music videos. I just have to have a filter in my head rather than in a web browser extension / ssoosay Soul Screened (B&W CRT Variant)

ssoosay Stuff / Second-hand Upgrade Notes

ssoosay Stuff / Second-hand Upgrade Notes

I’ve been recently sorting out my equipment. Traded-in my SLR (only use compact cameras these days), lots of Styli I don’t use, Ipad mini and my Wacom Cintiq 12WX.

My favourite bit of kit was the Wacom Cintiq 12WX, but I wanted something more portable and higher resolution.
Colour, saturation, contrast, gama etc. looks a bit different on newer screens, I worried my artwork was looking too bright and saturated; it was the right time to upgrade. Will need to get used to the new setup. 7 years with the Cintiq 12WX, it was part of my journey so far. Used it more as a second monitor than a tablet. I should definitely do more sketching in the future.

Stupidly bought more second-hand DVDs, want to start taking screenshots and learn from them more. Will probably add screenshots to Facebook with my study notes: Study them so my illustration work can have a flavour of the things I love.

Anyway, stuff is just stuff, tools and equipment can help me but aren’t the main focus. DVDs can help educate and inspire, but they are other people’s work, not my own (fanboy is not a skill).

Will keep trying to make cool images (and GIFs now too) whatever the future holds.
