Hello guys!!

I need your help, I'm getting crazy with this issue. I have a Cintiq 13, and I usually use Photoshop and SAI. I've been having some problems since 1 year ago, little problems that make drawing more and more difficult.

Problems like: Windows Ink (alt+pen button combo doesn't work anymore since Windows Ink appeared), strokes on SAI (and also Clip Studio) are not clean anymore, it's like they had a bit of lag at the beginning of the stroke (that's why I haven't submitted any manga pictures in a year), also, pen pressure on SAI works well, but it was cleaner before, incorrect tablet mapping on SAI, the zoom option in Photoshop doesn't work as well as before. I tried installing and re-installing different Wacom drivers versions, but whenever they fix a problem, another one appears. I have 2 PCs and everything above happens in both. I miss the good old years with Windows 7... Or was it my old tablet? I'll never know, but now I find myself spending hours and hours on Google trying to fix a different issue each time, and not enjoying drawing. It's kinda frustrating.

I don't know if it's because of the Wacom drivers, the Windows updates, the tablet itself, my computers, Photoshop, SAI or what. Is it only me or it happens to any of you? Don't you have the feeling that drawing digitally is a bit more difficult now than before? I'd like to know your thougths, guys, any help will be more than welcome.

Thank you very much! And I'd also like to remind you about the Dragon contest!

First of all, thank you all for participating in this new Dragon Contest. Join the Facebook group [link], I'm sharing dragon drawing tutorials there, it's private for now, so you would have to send a request. I'll probably do it public in the future. Even if you don’t participate, you are more than welcome to watch and learn! Here are the rules of the contest:

RULES

  1. You will have to do a dragon study or a dragon reference sheet, with the following specifications.
  2. NECESSARY: Picture of your dragon, full body, posing. This will be the main big picture. No background needed, but feel free to add it if you want.
  3. OPTIONAL (but necessary if you want to win the contest): Detail of: head, wing extended, claws and any other detail you may consider, like scales, eye, fire breath, gender difference, land they live in, etc.
  4. If you want to add text, keep it to minimum, it can’t be intrusive. The only obligatory text is the NAME of the dragon (own name or race name). The rest is up to you.
  5. Only one entry per person!
  6. Send me your entry on a private message on Facebook, I’m the admin of the group, or a note in DeviantArt, with the title DRAGON CONTEST..

DEADLINE

The deadline to submit your dragon design is November 27, 2018 (you have 3 months starting today, August 27). After that, give me one or two weeks to value all the entries and decide the winners!

WHAT I WILL VALUE

  1. Believable dragon designs will be valued. This means, good, justified or believable anatomy. Add as many legs, arms, heads, etc as you want, as long as they have a clear natural functionality, explain it with text if you need it (brief text please), don’t add parts or details just for the sake of doing it. MY RECOMMENDATION: 2 arms, 2 legs, 2 wings and one head. Feel free to be original anyway!
  2. Color (this is very important). Don’t go for a black and white sketch. Light and shadows schemes will be well valued.
  3. As I said, detail shots of your dragons, like head, wing, eyes, etc.
  4. You can go for cartoony dragon if you want, as long as you keep believable anatomy and design (like Toothless from How to train your dragon).
  5. Traditional or digital, it doesn't matter, just show your best skills!
  6. Of course, I will value originality!

PRIZES

1st Prize:
A dragon t-shirt! Select a picture from my gallery, I will do a t-shirt for you and I’ll send it to you. Just let me know the size and color!

The second OR the third prize.
2nd Prize:
A dragon 70x100cm poster! Select a picture from my gallery, I will do a poster for you and I’ll send it to you.

The winning pictures will be posted in my Deviantart account, and all the entries will be showed in the Facebook group (unless you tell me not to do it).

FINAL CONSIDERATIONS

  1. Feel free to use the Facebook group to share your work in progress, or even your final entry. Be open to give and receive feedback, be open to learn from others, and don’t be afraid! Remember, it will completely be up to you if you want to incorporate that feedback into your drawing, and of course it will be up to you if you want to keep your drawing in secret until the end of the contest.
  2. Be respectful with other participants in the group, nomatter the drawing skills they have. Any participant giving offensive feedback or having a harsh behavior will be kicked off the group and the contest.
  3. Don’t spam! You will be kicked off the group and the contest if you intentionally cross the line.
  4. Again, send me the picture when finished. Facebook private message to the admin of the group, which is me, or a note in DeviantArt, with the title DRAGON CONTEST. I will not count it as an entry for the contest until I receive it. Once you send it to me, you won’t be able to modify it.
  5. You can post your work in progress or final entry wherever you want. Total freedom.
  6. Feel free to ask questions if anything is not clear, I will answer them as soon as possible!

Hey guys! Due to the possitive response about doing a new dragon contest, let's do it then! I would like to do something different this time, an experiment. This contest will be held on a Facebook group: 
[link]

You will find all the information you need for the contest there! Of course, you don't have to join if you don't want and do everything on DeviantArt, but I will be updating all the information there. The group is private, so please send me a request so I can let you in.

I chose to make a Facebook group so you guys can share information and feedback, and even your own work in progress. I don't want this to be a competition, but an opportunity to learn from others. Don't do it if you don't want, but at least be part of the group so you don't miss any update.

Also, even people who don't have DeviantArt account can participate, so feel free to let your friends know.

As I said, this is an experiment, but I really hope this goes well and you enjoy the experience! Thank you all for joninig! See you in the group!

Dude just epic art!! May I use some for a Google Plus collection and promote you friend? I've had to remake my account at least 5 times now but I've been here at least 7 or 8 years and I have never seen art this amazing. Not even a dragon Wolf!! Once I finish fixing my cell my Google plus is léstat dé Lioncourt I'll add you send me a note I'll give you my email to that google plus. I have been working on drawing the sky lately but because of haters, hackers, stalkers and the like I've been incognito and offline. Id really love to make a new friend and draw or write you a poem based on your artwork. The Might of Draconius Lupinius and his kingdom That's the title I feel your dragon Wolf and art deserves and if you have any suggestions to anything I love to write stories and can write your characters in a wattpad novel just give me a title friend. It's hard finding the old souls here on DA too many kids nowadays but gotta give them the credit and empathy they deserve. Look for @kazekamikaze on wattpad. I need to upload some new stories from my physical journals but it would be my pleasure and an honor to write a book for a DA account member and artist as skilled as I can write a poem so blatantly deeper than the stars depth perception that it'd probably burn your eyes yet I'd just love to put my imagination and make a plot with you and pick up on writing again. I do stuff for the sheer passion and fun of it so friend brother if I may ask can I write for you? I'll even draw the very sky I see the day I start it in my sketchbook and put as much love and detail in it as a novel needs. Every good story has three parts two perspectives andone moral viewpoint and value or values that relate to the entirety of the story. You tell me the plot and the moral and I will write it with your characters. If you wish me to add a few of my ocs I'll be honored. I'll even make it a fanfiction with your favorite film or anything. Give me a title. Sorry if I'm happy I have an emotional disability it's hard to form bonds with people and talk to them or keep a relationship yet this would be so cool stepping into a new genre and someone elses shoes of fantasy simular to my own world of dragons and lore and beasts and anime <3 oh how I love to tell a good tale my friend and I strongly and most deeply apologize for this long post please forgive my intolerable behavior. I shouldn't word vomit on people's pages. I'm just happy I may get to write at least something new while I try and find my books again. Have the most epic fantasy filled week life and may the dragons and mythology soar as mountains rise above the oceans floor like pyramids floating upon angel dust in the heavenly horizons. Keep drawing friend love the work.
