I'm sorry for bother you again, can I ask you about something personal?
What should I do if I want to be good artist?
Is practice good enough?

Reply :

What kind of good artist you wanted to be? I will teach you about the middle path then, because taking the extreme paths on each side is not recommended according to my experience. [super-duper skilled artist who lusts for skills nor starving artist who only draw lazy art and do extremely minimal things]


practice as often as your time permits, for regular art [generic drawing/coloring art] there are 4 rooms in the artist's heart, drawing skills, coloring skills/color theory, art composition skills, and imagination, try to practice all of them if possible. 

And do not compare yourself with other people, some people said it is good to compare yourself with others, to improve your skills sky high , if you still have this ego, the more skilled you are, the more unpleasant you will have if you find someone better than you , Do not think that you are better/equal/ or worse than them, This is one of the 10 fetters that should be discarded [If you wish to live peacefully in this messy world], Try to throw away this ego and practice with calm/peaceful mind, always realize that everyone is equal and balanced, someone who is better at drawing maybe bad at doing other tasks. someone who can't draw is better at doing something else, Artist's life is not just about art. 

[unfortunately, I also wish to teach you that lusting/liking for anything that can be seen with your eyes, is also one of the ten fetters, [I'm trying/learning to discard it too], But this maybe a bit too much to say on art website.

and more importantly, dont forget to help others

I have taught you my favorite simplified way of the artist life [middle path], to improve your skills and to maintain your mental condition without becoming crazy, I hope you could be a good artist with calm mind if you follow my instruction. 

I know my reply doesn't sound so nice to some people, I also open for discussion in this journal.

I have a few questions~

Is an airbrush worth to buy? I tried to create the sun-light ray effects on my watercolour paper but they always fail~TT^TT

Is Photoshop/Manga Studio EX worth to buy?

I've been accustomed to OpenCanvas6, should I risk trying out a new software program?

Do you do transparent background digital commisions?If so, how much will it be?

What is the Mask Layer used for?

Airbrush is good for adding foggy glaze in watercolor, adding light radius, sun ray, etc 
Fairy Oak : Pervinca Periwinkle by emperpep
you can see transparent deep blue around the corners , I used cobalt blue with airbrush for blue glazing , I also used it with white [diluted copic opaque white] for lightning effects around the picture [ you may have to wear a cloth mask when using airbrush for your own safety]
It can expand your traditional technique if you know how to use it properly, but you also have to buy air compressor to use with airbrush, and you have to learn how to take care of it to prevent clogging, if you can't afford them yet, you can use soft pastel with cotton wool instead, I used them quite often when I was too lazy to prepare my airbrush [but the drawback of soft pastel is they can be easily smudged]

photoshop is so expensive imo, if you only use it for minor touch up or free time doodling, my recommendation is getting photoshop cs2 [it is free], you can download it for free from adobe, try searching google for more info.
I also use photoshop cs2 for scanned traditional art correction, but if you really need to use its newest features, then it is up to you to decide, and I have no recommendation for EX, they said  EX has manga page management feature, and I dont need it as I only draw illustration, so it is up to you.

I was also an opencanvas 4 user , before I moved to photoshop and sai, my favorite feature in opencanvas is replayable event file, , I've tried using 6 and still not getting used to it yet,  so it is up to you to study their new features and decide yourself.

If I do backgroundless, commission, I might reduce the price by around $50 [but depends on complexity though], in fact I usually avoid working on commission which looks incomplete to my taste [I usually included free simple background for them at least]

and layer mask [ I will use paint tool sai] is a tool that will keep your color/brush stroke visible inside the selection source [it will hide color/brushstroke outside the mask, but if you turn it off, those things will appear] , you have to use selection tool to create selection source first [selection brush, magic wand, etc] and then click ''new layer mask'' then click layer on the left again to start painting [ because when I colored it right away without clicking the layer ,it didnt work]  if you apply layer mask on layer folder, every layers in that folder will have the same layer mask applied, quite useful when coloring character, try using this feature to get used to it [but I always used clipping group instead, it is up to you]
