Getting started with digital art
As an artist that does digital art, I always get a lot of questions about what tablets people should use and how to make their choices. While I think equipment isn't all that matters, I think some things are good to take in consideration when buying a tablet. So here's something to get you started!
Bullet; Red  Why do I need a tablet? Can't I use a mouse instead?
The biggest reason; ergonomics. When you do a lot of computer work in general, it's better to use a tablet over a mouse. This is because a mouse isn't designed for precision work. It's putting too much pressure on muscles that are not intended for precision work, hence it raises your chances to get all kinds of nasty injury's. Even if you can draw just fine with a computer mouse, you might actually consider to start using a tablet, for the reason that

The Sistine Chapel
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was born 540 years ago on March 6, 1475.
His preeminence in the art world as being one of the two greatest artists of the Italian High Renaissance (1495-1527) assures that his lasting presence is felt as keenly today as it was five centuries ago. Every year, art lovers from around the world make special pilgrimages to Italy, drawn by a visceral need to experience in person

Good LAWD it has been too long, my friends. This has pretty much been the worst year of my life so yuh, I've had to take some time off. I've actually drawn a lot, but I'm far too lazy to send it in. Hoo boy, I'm just glad it's Friday. ;u;
Anyway, lots of art to be uploaded shortly, if I can dig it up.

ReyRay's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied

I never quite know what to say on these things.

So, ReyRay is a horrendous nickname. Given the chance, I'd murder my younger self for choosing it as my ID. Call me Rey if you'd like!

I'm a junior in high school. I like red velvet cupcakes, glass bottles, and overweight cats.

I love art. I love stories. Fiction keeps me going in life, and I'm sure it does the same for many others. There are only so many outlets people are able to have, so we might as well do what we love and respect other people as we do it.

I try to help where it's needed. There are far too many wonderful people out there that are doubtful of themselves when they have so much potential. Don't put yourselves down, please. And if you ever need help with anything, you don't have to keep it to yourself. I can help you, even if it's small or stupid, it could domino into something significant.

I might seem a bit chirpy on here, but in reality, I am introverted; not what you would call social. In a way, I would much rather say an impassioned speech in front of 500 people than have small talk with each of them.
Eh, if that makes any sense.

Lastly, I look up to many an artist on here! So if I happen to enjoy your work, I'm not above flailing around in a fit of fervent fangirling. Best to just wait it out. Hope you don't get too freaked out!

If you read this in its entirety, I applaud your attention span. You get internet cake. <3


"Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving." -Terry Pratchett
