  • I bought a Monoprice a while back and I thought the quality and accuracy were quite good, but the pressure sensitivity felt really unbalanced to me and there were no options to change it. I returned it and got an Intuos 5 which felt just right the instant I started using it! There were plenty of options to change the settings but I didn't really need them (by the way, I don't recommend the Touch option; it tends to be more irritating than useful). If the Monoprice has good software customization now, I'd say go for it. If it doesn't, it's a gamble as to whether it's pressure sensitivity setup suits you or not.

  • There are quite a few blogs that gather art from around the place for our viewing pleasure, but a couple of blogs that I visit most often are Parka Blogs (a review site focusing mainly on entertainment art books) and Lines and Colors (high quality art from all over the place). I'm sure you've got some good suggestions yourself, Evan!

  • Nice work! Good ideas, and well achieved. In other words, excellent for Threadless! Speaking of which, why can't we have animated shirt designs yet?

  • Very nice print! A great example of how digital painting can work on a shirt (or anything that doesn't suit a strict rectangular format).

  • RonanL: I've got a similar split between digital painting and graphic illustration, leaning toward the painting! Digital painting can theoretically work for shirts (at least I've tried it for Threadless, eg. Faceballs and Impossible Chase). There are also printed designs like Nathan Stillie's Firelight Cottage.

    Adding to the brush download choices, there are some free Photoshop brushes by Sam Nielson. I used a couple of his brushes along with default ones (and software called TwistedBrush) for some of Ye Olde Space Movie.

    If you're looking for painting software, I've posted a list (with notes and links) of digital painting software options at my blog (the post I've linked has some intro info as well as tips on saving money. The actual list starts on the second post, with my top recommendations based on demos I've tried).
