As I've said before, I'm a self-taught artist. And by self-taught, I mean I don't have any special schooling or degrees. I pretty much just picked up a notebook and pencil and asked my friend to show me how to draw a chibi one day. That's where the madness began! My teachers have been my wonderful friends, books from the library, internet tutorials. I bet a lot of you can relate right?

that being said, I first off wanna give a thank-you shout-out to :iconsaucyplebeian: and :iconkareink: for answering my last journal question and sharing with me the wonders of dpi adjusting. Remember how I said I'm self-taught? I'd never heard of dpi or how to adjust it. So a big THANK YOU to those two friends of mine for sharing yet another secret of digital artwork I had no clue about! :D

I also wanted to share a link to two super helpful Paint Tool SAI brush tutorials I recently discovered on tumblr that have drastically helped a piece I'm working on.
:bulletyellow:… (this girl is a fantastic artist! I recommend you check out her blog :D)

although a lot of this may seem obvious to some, I'm thrilled! I tried adding texture layers to an old drawing and one I'm working on. I nearly rolled off my bed in excitement they looked so cool! such improvement! (very art! much textures! wow! :icondogememeplz:)
Sedna by Checker-Bee oooh! look at that aquatic texture!  wooooooas! 

so yeah, I'm always on the lookout for new ways to improve my artwork! It's so refreshing to add new spins to your techniques. Never stop learning! :D
