PLEASE NOTE THAT CHIBI COMMISSION PRICES HAVE INCREASED!  Chibi commissions are now $50 USD (payable via PayPal). I know that the price increase is quite a bump but please understand that I treat my commissions with the same care and attention that I give my personal drawings and they take anywhere between 2-4 hours each.  I am working on creating a lower rate option (flat style, head portraits, etc) for future commissions!

Have you ever thought about submitting some of your old art to dA? Just a thought. I think it would be cool for others to see your improvement. :)

I actually have! I wanted to do a "draw this again" meme where I have some artwork from when I was just starting :)

Hey, I just got my tablet, but I'm having trouble finding free (or cheap) drawing programs that work well with my tablet. I really want to use some brush strokes and cool new pressure features, but every program that was rated well for working with Wacom is REALLY expensive. Do you know if any good programs I could get?

Thanks. :)
TsaoShin Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Professional Digital Artist
The only free program I can think of is GIMP but I don't have a lot of experience with it so I can't tell you if the features are well suited.  You could always try a trial membership of Photoshop CC.  After the trial it's $10 a month but you can cancel any time.  If you're looking for something a little less expensive you can try ArtRage.  It has a lot of good tools that work well with the tablet :)
