Y-Speak: From drawing to digital drawing

DRAWING is one thing that most people do to set their creative thoughts into something physical through the use of pen, pencil, and paper. Since the beginning of time, ancient civilizations have created a way to communicate with each other using their hands and a bunch of rocks. Time passed by, drawing evolved to many different forms jumping from one mode to another. This paved pathways for aspiring artists who wish to get into the art industry.

Presently, the world is bounded by technology, giving millions of artists the access to information for references. Digital drawing became a new mode of drawing and many artists dive themselves into it. With enhanced free-hand drawing skills and a slight adjustment to the equipment being used in digital drawing, one can get themselves to the industry if they try. Motivation and enthusiasm will bring an artist to a greater higher ground.

Digital drawing isn’t a very demanding hobby or skill to have, but the industry is. There are thousands or millions of people who are very particular to the art style. Now, art style is something that takes an artist months or years to develop. This is due to their influence and exposure on many subjects and experiences in the world.
