Ah yes, practice. I'm not quite old enough to be in university, haha,
and I only do drawing so far as a hobby. I'm mainly self-taught, so
I'm not as advanced quite yet. I only gather from what I see, since
I'm too shy to ask the pros for advice, lol.
Autodesk is a good art tool, I have to agree. It's also great that pro
is now free (YEEESSS) and I have more access to different types of
brushes. It's been helping me a lot. I mainly play around with the
brushes first to see which ones I can use for a certain piece, but it's
sometimes hard to do some things, like shadowing and all that.
I use Autodesk on my computer. I always draw with my finger, since I
currently don't have a pen. T^T But I'll be waiting for the new updates
