Everytime I open up Adobe Photoshop it’s like walking into my home. It welcomes me in with that sense of familiarity you get when your keys unlock your front door. I know essentially where most things are, where they go, and how they work and have done so for about ten years. Occasionally, I notice something I didn’t before or decide to change up my routine, but at the end of the day Photoshop always greets me like an old friend.
Now I’ve opened up Adobe Illustrator and it’s like walking into the home of a sentient alien species living on a distant planet in a different galaxy in an alternate dimension. Time to crack out the tutorials, it’s baby steps all over again.

Sadly Ninetales isn’t part of my favourites so I won’t be drawing it any time soon.

Wow, I was wondering where my huge influx of new followers and notes came from 0__0 That’s really cool, thanks Jamie!
Not felt tips, not gel-tips etc. They are amazing for darkness and crisp linework, but they just aren’t able to create the delicate tones that ballpoints can achieve. And ballpoint pen is one of my favourite ‘mediums’ but is highly disregarded in the art community. If I want to continue using it, I should make sure that its going to stand the tests of time instead of fading. Some people have suggested just refilling the barrel of a ballpoint pen with archival ink and work with that, but the consistency is still not the same.

Thanks so much, I appreciate the help. I have reported the piece, but I assume DA have to deal with hundreds of deviation reports daily, many being false claims or something of the likes and my stolen artwork has been overlooked before. Perhaps if a few people help report the same deviation, the chances of it being removed rather than overlooked or dismissed may be higher (I don’t know if this is actually the case, but it is worth a shot).
