  3. Anonymous said: (Sorry if you've received this ask like 14 billion times before, but I didn't see it in your FAQ.) What tablet and drawing software do you use? I'm sure that the quality of art doesn't have that much to do with just those tools, but I'm curious. :)

    alicexz:

    Hi! You’re right, I do get this ask a lot. But then I realized it’s probably because I haven’t officially answered it anywhere. So I am going to answer this tablet question ONCE AND FOR ALL and give you all way too much information.

    This is the tablet I use most often - a Wacom Cintiq 21UX. The Cintiq is a type of drawing tablet that doubles as a monitor - basically, it lets you draw directly on the screen. Like so:

    It’s the most “natural” way to draw digitally as there’s no disconnect with having to look at a separate screen while drawing on a different surface. The Cintiq is the tablet you see in most of my WIPs because it’s my main one, the one that sits in my home office. It is absolutely a great piece of equipment and many professional artists and studios use them. I LOVE my Cintiq. However, there are downsides:

    1. It’s completely NOT portable. So if you have a laptop and are hoping to draw on-the-go, a Cintiq can’t be your only tablet. The thing weighs 20lbs (although mine is an older model, the newer ones might weigh less… and they have Cintiq Companions now, which are sort of portable computer-tablets.) But in general, the thing will stay chained to your desk. Mine is ACTUALLY chained to my desk - mounted on a moveable arm. This is the reason why I own a separate small tablet, so I can work when traveling with my laptop.
    2. It’s pricey, and ultimately not NECESSARY. This is why I’ve been hesitant to answer the tablet question, because a lot of people automatically think that “oh, I need that tablet to create work like her!” Like anon said - the quality of your digital painting doesn’t improve with a Cintiq, just perhaps your efficiency. I don’t recommend dropping thousands of dollars unless you can absolutely afford it and are already comfortable with a regular tablet. And not that anyone asked, but my Cintiq was a generous gift from my bf years and years ago; it’s not the tablet I started out with (or would have started out with.) I have created, and still create, tons of paintings on this $99 Wacom Bamboo:

    tl;dr Cintiqs!! I use one! Great but $$$! Don’t feel pressured to get! Buy cheaper tablet if you are beginner! Upgrade only when ready money-wise and commitment-wise!! And remember:

    For those who STILL don’t understand why Alice X. Zhang is my FAVORITE artist…THIS.

    Some more Rouge! Another piece colored completely in Sketchbook Pro. Decided to do a piece of her inspired by what she wears in her ending to the first game.

    I enjoyed drawing/coloring her legs so much that I made a version without her sash for your entertainment.

  13. Gosh, this is gonna sound really presumptuous, that after not regularly posting ANYTHING over the past however many months, I request that the little bit of followers I have to watch I video I am promoting! Anyways, if you guys can ignore my neglect long enough to watch this cover of “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” from Disney’s Frozen by my favorite Youtuber Brizzy Voices, it will make you a legend in my eyes! This girl is super fun to watch and her videos keep getting better! She’s definitely on her way to wonderful and celebrated career in voice acting, so trust me I say, YOU SHOULD SUBSCRIBE TO HER on Youtube! You won’t be sorry. :)
