'oh!! i like your art! what tablet do you use? what program? and what brushes? what about pen pressure? stabiliser? and for your traditional art, what pencils and paper?'
i see new/novice artists ask this a lot.
i don't mind answering this question but the fact is it's not the tools that make the art, it's the artist. you can have the best tablet, the best art program (there's no such thing but i digress), the best oil paints, the best paper etc etc but mate, i'm not being funny but the truth is that if you don't have the skills everything you make will come out looking like shit.
if the tools made the art, we'd be able to give a £2700 top of the range cintiq to a toddler and said toddler would be able to produce boris vallejo-level art. no. i would draw the same on a cintiq as i do on my tablet i got in 2011 or the tablet i had before that. it's the artist that makes the art. the artist and their time and vision and skill. materials for the most part mean no
