I just had a few questions for the folks here. I used to draw a few years ago, while I was nothing special, I've had this inkling lately to get back into it. Since I'm in a financially more comfortable position than I was then, I'm able to afford some toys that were previously unavailable to me.
Toys or tools themselves don't make an artist, so I figured I'd ask. The display I'm working on is a HP ZR30w, 30" display with 30-bit color support (10 bits per red, green and blue.) Sounds fancy, but I never got into color theory so as I am now that feature is useless beyond a bullet item in the monitor's functionality list. I've been pondering whether I should bother getting a Cintiq. Mostly because it's pricey, and secondarily because I already have an Intuos 3 tablet. Coupled with the size of the display, the Intuos 3 tablet I have is a 6x8 model PTZ-630, set to have the four corners of the tablet correspond to the four corners of the display.
Onto software, I'm using Autodesk SketchBook Pro 2011, are there any recommendations on software beyond this or for this program?
In starting over, the questions I have seem to have put me in a deadlock, I'm not really sure where to begin (sure drawing itself would probably be a good place. )
Without a goal the idea of 'getting back into drawing' might have difficulty getting beyond an idea.
