About the tutorials

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 23, 2015, 11:18 AM





Hello everyone. I've had a busy year trying to finish my studies (It's been a while since I've finished college but anyway I must say it took a lot of my time) and getting ready for my wedding (yup, I got married last November if anyone wanted to know XD) So I've moved from my hometown to the city where my hubby lives and it's been 3 months since then.
I'm waiting for my computer so I don't have Sai, my tutorial files, the brushes or anything and right now I can't make the update for the 3 tutorials or a decent pic because i don't feel ok drawing with photoshop or mangastudio (ms is good for screentones and bw pics but i don't feel ok with the coloring there) So once again I write here like "sorry, I've been busy but I'll try to post more stuff and be active and blah blah blah"

The difference this time is that I think I really mean it now. Like deep inside. Because now I feel better with my drawings and now I feel like I can draw without my family saying shit like "why are you drawing that?" "why that girl is almost nude?" "why that girl isn't happy enough?" "why don't you draw stuff for us?"
I gotta admit I had to hide my windows if someone was close enough to the pc while I was working to avoid those kind of questions and that took a lot of my confidence and my will to draw (also other things that I wrote before at the journals)
But now I even have few projects in mind and I feel great because my hubby loves to draw and he loves when I draw and I feel at home at last.
So, part of my new attitude is that as soon as possible I'll post more
As soon as I get my files back I'll update the tutorials and give you more tips
As soon as I can I'll tell you about the new stuff I wanna do and it would be great if you can help me with feedback or comments or sharing the link of this gallery or my fb fanpage.

That makes me think I should make a new journal skin XD

Anyway i hope all of my watchers are doing great and all of you are having a great time and maybe few of you learned stuff by reading my tutorials. Feel free to send me a link with your improvement with my coloring tutorials if you like. I always feel better when I know that you like my drawing tips and I would love to share your work here with a feature journal.

Meanwhile, I'll be drawing with "Mischief". You should give it a try because it's very simple and good for sketching stuff because it has an infinite canvas so you can draw and draw and draw and it always has space to draw more hehehe.

Hello! I recently saw your tutorial for Medibang! I would like to ask you if I can translate to spanish. It's the best tutorial for Medibang I've seen so far, so I would like to share it with the spanish speaker community. Of course I'll give you the credits you deserve, but I wanted to ask for your permission.
If you do not wish, I totally understand! Have a nice day!

Hi! I think it's fine if you want to. I speak spanish but right now i don't have time to do it so I'd like to read it before you post it.
Also it would be great if you could add the medibang's page url for the description. I have to do edit mine to add the url as a request from medibang too hehehe.
Thank you
As soon as you post it I'll add the link of the translation too
Rainbow-Haired-Goose Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I noticed you're mexican, so I thought you might speak spanish too, but I assumed you dind't translate it precisely for those reasons, so instead of asking you to translate I just thought about doing it myself if you gave me your permission.
Of course, I'll post it in my stash and send you a note with the link before posting it.
But I'm having a bit of trouble with the "Show detail". What do you mean bye "versions"? Or are they details about the program and it's previous versions?
DyMaraway Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I had the same issue because I click it and nothing happens. So that's the description I've found of the tool inside the program (when the mouse hovers the option)
I think it is for cloud files. Since the drawing for the tutorial was my first serious pic with the program, and I don't use the cloud XD i still don't know what it does (I've asked the medibang ppl but got reply about other stuff and then we forgot the topic)
