Activity


I'm taking requests for Banners and Icons for YouTube, request in the comments here, or contact me on soaw.carbonmade.com (better).
We get up at 6 AM every day and usually never have time to eat breakfast, which let me remind you is the most important meal of the day. Without breakfast, we won't work or think as productively. We have somewhere around seven hours of school and somewhere around thirty minutes of break which is usually lunch. And at lunch is usually when students do their homework or stress about how much they have. We are then expected to go home and do another hour or two of homework and have extra-curricular activities and be able to sustain a normal social life. After staying up till midnight or maybe even later, we go to bed and repeat the process. We aren't raising an intelligent, successful, creative generation. We are raising a generation of zombies. We need change.
POST THIS EVERYWHERE! WE NEED TO CHANGE THE AMERICAN SCHOOL SYSTEM!
Okay. Here we go.
When I first started, I was using Paint Tool SAI. It was actually a very good program, except for a few things.
PAINT TOOLS SAI
Pros:
Dynamic Mixing - When using the brush, it would mix the color you were using with any nearby other color, making shading way easier.
Interface - The interface is very beginner-friendly, and even still good for professionals.
Customization - It is INCREDIBLY CUSTOMIZABLE! You can change almost EVERY aspect of the interface and functions.
Cons:
Text - The text tool is very basic. It's one font size, and you can't even change the font face.
No Dark Theme - Personally, I prefer dark themes, and SAI just didn't have that.
Pressure Sensitivity - I don't know if this was just my problem (it probably was), but I had trouble getting pressure sensitivity to work. This contributed to me moving onto...

FIREALPACA:
Pros:
Very easy to learn without any tutorials
Customizable
Very powerful
Built-in comic-sized presets
Cons:
No dark theme
Pressure sensitivity - Same as above. I just couldn't get it to work, so I moved onto...

MEDIBANG PAINT PRO (by the creators of FireAlpaca):
Pros:
DARK THEME! - By default, MediBang uses a dark themed interface! I love it!
Pressure Sensitivity - After trying literally everything out there to try and fix pressure sensitivity on FireAlpaca, I finally gave up and got MB, where the pressure sensitivity worked immediately.
Simple straight lines - If you tap on a point, then hold shift and tap where you want the second point to be, MB will automatically create a straight line between those points.
Cons:
Glitches - The glitches are very minor, but are noticable when they show up. One glitch I noticed was the right button being the eraser glitching. It would sometimes not switch back to the pen, but you can fix that.

And that's about it! I'm currently using MediBang, which I think is the best of all of these programs. I hope this helped you out!

P.S. Here's a sneak peek of a panel of a comic I've been working on in MediBang... It'll be up on my Tapastic tomorrow or next weekend.

Updated Banner for SkyDek
SkyDek's channel: www.youtube.com/channel/UC_XrZ…
YES, it's HUGE. That's so it displays better. Also, is there a better category than Signature Banner for YouTube banners?

Hello! I'm SOAW, and I design banners for small YouTubers, hopefully big ones one day! I also do the occasional speedart on my channel, which is usually Zootopia-themed, since I'm obsessed with Zootopia. If you want a banner, just tell me! Also include your channel link, a color scheme, and anything you want me to include. I can't read minds, you know!
