4 Choose your tools

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Don’t let your tools de­fine you. Yes, it helps to have a fast com­puter, but be­gin­ners should stick to the ba­sics. As your skills im­prove and you start mak­ing money, grad­u­ally in­vest in newer, bet­ter kit. When I started I had a nor­mal PC and a small Ge­nius tablet. A sketch­book en­abled me to prac­tise any­where.

My other key tool is Pho­to­shop, but the only as­pect that I’ve per­son­alised are the brushes and some short­cuts. Dig­i­tal tools won’t help you im­prove on their own, but can be a ben­e­fit if you feel com­fort­able us­ing them. From ex­pe­ri­ence, I’ve no­ticed that a more re­laxed artist will be more pro­duc­tive.
