      [Question] I have multiple , i am new to this field ( digital art )

      1) How to pick name ? that will be everywhere i will use and make a brand out of it in future , its soo hard to pick name ( i cant use my real name its very common )


      2) Where to upload art ? the first thing come to my mind is deviant art but i see people post on other sites like carbonmade and chiness sites as well


      3) Is it fair to copy people for practice / learn , not uploading it anywhere ( maybe shareing it with creator in dm on reddit , to get more tips out of them )


      4) Can i make free art commision just for fun on sub reddits like this one ? or every sub reddit is different and i have to make sure if its allowed first


      5) Incase let say i make different types of art like lietarlly multiples , how do i arange the profolio ? on let say if i use deviant art / instagragm / facebook
      like make folders and what not for it ? or just stick to one type ? sticking to one type is boring


      6) Should i use minimilastic software first like paint tool sai before jump to industry standard photoshop , or go all in and just do photoshop from start to end


      7) well i have kamvas pro 12 , my monitor actually is vga one by samsung 1366*178 res , the tablet on other hand goes 1080p i belive and has higher resolution sooo do i need to change monitor first ? is that urgent requirement ? or i can buy later along the line


      8) is it better to keep drawing and learning ( via tutorials ) or just learn first then dive in the rabbit hole ?
      learning part gets boring


      RN my pc specs are


      i7 3770 , 16 gb ram , sufficent storage space and also have ssd , and 1080 windforce gigabyte gpu

      Don't worry about it too much. Just make sure it isn't something like "nudemonster69".

      Most artists use Behance, Insta, FB and Artstation. The more your work is out there the better it is. More eyes on your work and more constructive criticism is what you are aiming at, and ofcourse landing freelance jobs or commissions. So try to post anywhere and everywhere.

      Its perfectly fine. Call it a study and try to practice certain illustration for the styles. Its pretty common. I doubt everyone that does that asks for a blessing, as most of these artists we try to mimic are quite busy and may not respond or help.

      If its free I doubt anyone would mind it. You can also do fan arts and share on reddits. Although some sub redditors are not very welcoming of them and some can be very critical.

      The more organized it is, the better it is for someone who is going through everything. But for people skimming through it its a hurdle. I have been told at one of the interviews: "Isn't all of it uploaded at one place?".

      Go for Photoshop. Its not like you will learn it completely in your first month. If its for frame animation then use whatever is the industry standard like toon boom harmony. You can use whatever software you feel like but why waste time. The more time you spend on a software the more you learn and get better at it.

      If you have a drawing monitor tablet, why do you need another monitor? If its for previewing, then ofcourse go for a better screen. Also, how did you get Huion Kamvas here in pakistan?. I have been trying to get one and havent found any at a reasonable price. Im not comfortable with Aliexpress.

      Anyone would tell you to keep practicing. Draw anything.. doesnt matter, as long as you draw everyday. So its best to keep practicing and learning new techniques as you go. Do both simultaneously. First ofcourse you will need to grasp the basic understanding of using a software, but also keep watching tutorials as you will learn so many new things and you should keep applying them as you go. Learn & practice.

      Its more than enough for photoshop or any other digital drawing software.

      got it from relative who was coming after 5 years from usa , no no no not free i paid ;x


      @zainzombie should i use pirated photoshop for now , or start legit from zero ( orignal purchased version i mean , it has monthaly and annual subscribtion )

      you can get it imported from guys at pg ofc they will charge a bit more cuz little bit of profit and the tax of bringing in item , but atleast its better then buying overpriced stuff from vendors inside pakistan .

      you have been asked in interview ?? wait what ... elaborate please ... you work as graphic artist in a company ???
      dam son ima auditor doing articleship , its boring job .

      name picking is very hard , my real name is too common its ahmed , its very common name dude . cant use real name . and the_007_remix is overkill i think . or fuck it should i use it everywhere ?? i am not really sure its not professional . and i dont listen to hip hop anymore xD and james bond series is kind of at ded end imo

      I would never tell anyone to pirate anything, but if you mean if there is any difference then no there isnt. If you can afford the subscription without breaking a sweat, definitely go for it.

      Yeah I will ask around here. Had a few good deals on olx but out of karachi.

      Yeah I work as a digital artist, we work on 2D animations. Do apply, but I have a feeling audit job will pay better at the end of the day. So choose wisely.

      I personally never cared or paid much attention to artist names/nicknames. But if you are uncomfortable with your first name then just use the first initial with the last name. So suppose your name is James Bond, go with something like JBond.
