During my time here on the forum, I have seen many grand pieces of Art, of very good quality. Some of which are featured on my profile page. I would love to get back into drawing, but long passed are the days of pencil and paper. Now everyone seems to use drawing tablets, or that's what i'm assuming. When I draw a picture using pencil and paper and then scan it to my computer it comes out faded and not looking very nice. So my question is this. What are the tools that these great artists on the forum use to create there magnificent pieces of Art. Do you use drawing tablets or something else? What programs do they use? Could a Ipad be used in place of a drawing tablet to the same quality of results? And what or where is the cheapest way to acquire all these required tools? Thanks for your time. Regards Kingdanner.
