To Create A Simple JournalI've had a few friends over my time here ask for advice on a few dA topics so I thought I'd make a post about each one as it happens again, in the hope that it may help someone. I don't claim that this is the only way to do things - probably far from it! Nor do I claim that there may not be errors here. Please tell me - nicely! - if you find any and I will correct it! I can no longer access the 'old way' of creating a journal, more's the pity, so I can only advise on how to do it through Sta.sh. So, to the best of my knowledge, here is some helpful guidance for those who need it.More Like This

How to get used to your new tablet!This tutorial is by no means a definitive guide, but it should help you with your tablet usage!More Like This
1 - First and foremost, don't be afraid of it. You need to use it. Every. Single. Day. Use it to browse the web for example. It'll help you get used to the sensitivity (practice highlighting sections of text), and all of the features of the pen. Some suggest that you should hide your mouse, so you're forced to only use your tablet! Through daily use, it should become an extension of your arm, and begin to move naturally.
2 - Play with it. Mess around with all of the settings your tablet has to offer. Not only will it help you find the settings you're most comfortable with, but it'll teach you what each individual part does. Also play around with it in your chosen drawing program (Photoshop / SAI / etc.), you'll learn more about your tablet and how it reacts to the program's settings (which may be different than what you're used to) - you're undoubte

Quick'n'Dirty: Reflections and TransparencyFractal Art WeekMore Like This
Note: these are not the holy grail settings for reflections and transparency. They are what this is called: a quick and dirty approach for those who (like me for a long long time) need a place to start and experiment from. All in here is based on what I found out myself or what I was pointed to by kind fellow DA-members. If you find fault with it, have additional tips or whatever, please drop me a note Also, please remember, I am not a native speaker. Either ignore spelling- and/or grammar-mistakes or (even better!) point me to them if you like!
Errmm... Maybe it's not such a Quick tutorial after all... :}
