Digital Art Tips and Tricks

  • Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community that recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. Everyone can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more.

  • This weekend 20-21 April the website will be unavailable for a few hours for a scheduled upgrade and maintenance. Estimated time that the site will be unavailable will be around 3 hours.

  • This community does not generate revenue and relies on its members and financial contributors to keep it running.

    For a complete month, we would need around 235 USD for a break-even situation.

If you want to do digital art, but don't have on, get one. They are a digital artist's best friend. Doesn't matter what one. For a beginner or maybe someone who doesn't want a pricey one, go for Wacom and their Bamboo series. The Bamboo Pen is all you need to start, nothing fancy, unless of course you want to. But you really really need one if you're wanting to do digital art. Unless you want to buy an art program, this is all you'll need to buy for it.

If you want to focus on actually drawing and painting, then Paint Tool Sai is what I recommend. This is the free trial. It's not hard to find a full download if you don't want to pay.
If you have Photoshop, then that's good too. Though it's more for graphics and editing, Paint Tool Sai is made for drawing.

Those are the dead basics. If you want to know more, reply or message me.
