Can I do the art prompts with paint?

10:17 AM, Saturday March 19th 2022

I find it more comfortable to work with paint, but the entire point of this course is to get used to doing things you are uncomfortable with.

I find forming with paints to be way easier, but I will refrain from doing so if you want... even though I have started on a painting already.

Also super quick extra question, do I post art prompts as homework or in my sketchbook?

This is from the FAQ section of the article

Do I have to use ink, or apply the concepts from Drawabox?

Nope - just like the rest of the 50% rule, you can work in whatever medium you please, and totally ignore the principles of Drawabox if you like. Just focus on exploring, playing, and pushing your boundaries.

Looks like PepperMagic answered the first question (you can use whatever tools you wish - the comfort zone aspect of this is more to push yourself to draw things for the hell of it, so to achieve that, draw with whatever you're most comfortable). As to the second, outside of the events you can post them as sketchbook posts (which also include a little dropdown menu from which you can select one of the prompts if you used one). Homework is specifically for Drawabox homework assignments, and it will become very clear that if you try to post your prompt work there, that it's the wrong place.

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.
Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

There are a lot of options for illustration software out there, but mine has always been Adobe Photoshop. I've been using it for nearly 20 years now, ever since I started fooling around with digital art, and it has served me well into my career, both in freelancing and in studio positions. One of the biggest advantages, in my opinion, for those jumping into digital art with Photoshop now is its accessibility. Where when I was younger, it'd cost hundreds, even over a thousand dollars for a software license, younger students can now get their feet wet with industry standard software for just $10/month with their Photography Plan.
