Asshole's list of things you don't need to know but will read anyways:

I'm teasexual
Professional cunt
Extra lazy and extra thicc but only in the thighs
I do art sometimes
But tbh I mostly watch South Park, read the Percy Jackson series, and play Zelda instead of living a life



I just bought my tablet and my pen is already worn down.
I wasn't gonna post but.....
Fuck it. Old edgy OC from like 2.5 years ago. I'm tempted to use him for my profile pic as a joke. Screw it, I'm doing it. 

I've heard a bit about Autodesk and decided to give it a shot to try and make my grandma stop paying a ton of money on me for Photoshop. Though since I’m scared of sketching in any other program than Photoshop for some odd reason, I sketched this in Photoshop using the Kyle T Webster Classic Cartoonist brush (Other than my Jonas De Ro brushes, it comes with Photoshop in the newer versions).

Here’s my finished piece that I did in Autodesk of an old OC. I used the pencil brush and marker brush

Here’s the same thing in a program I'm used to, Photoshop. I used the exact same colors but the brushes I prefer since Autodesk’s brushes are completely different. I used the Kyle T. Webster Classic Cartoonist brush for the line art and the Thick 'n Thin for the coloring. The hair gradient was done with layer masks and one of the Jonas De Ro cloud brushes.

Now here's my pros and cons:

Pros of Autodesk:

  • Somewhat free**
  • Easy to learn the interface
  • Much cheaper than Photoshop (Autodesk is $30 USD/year and Photoshop is $20/month to use ALL Adobe CC applications if you’re a student or teacher. It’s $10/month for just Photoshop and Lightroom but I’d invest if you can get the discount)
  • Being able to choose Copic colors (I was awestruck at this since I mainly use Copic markers and watercolors)
  • You can save as a .psd
  • Multi-color gradient where you can choose the color
  • You can easily change brush size or tool
  • Free trial to the full version
  • You can use it on your phone/tablet and computer
  • The marker brush was by far the most accurate marker brush I’ve encountered— almost exactly like Copics with less stress and frustration.


  • **It’s like a freemium game— it’s free to get, but the full potential comes out when you buy it. (I used the 15 day trial. I’m sure you can do something like WinRAR where you just keep making accounts every 15 days.)
  • No Navigation pane (I use this for 15% of navigation.)
  • No scroll bar (I use this for the other 85%)
  • I was not able to open a 1107x1155 image (Not that big— it’s three inches)
  • The brushes aren’t great for what I do — other than the marker one
  • You can only go up to a certain size for the brushes, which isn’t that big
  • No shortcuts like ctrl/cmd-T (However, ctrl/cmd-Z is still in place)
  • Not enough layer blending options
  • No clipping mask— I use the clipping mask A LOT.
  • I’m used to using “E” and “B” to switch between brush and eraser. Since the eraser is in the category of brushes, I have to constantly move to the corner and switch to the eraser after accidentally pulling up the ellipsis tool.
  • The “Screen” layer blending mode looks a bit off
  • This could be an error of my own, but the quality is a bit fuzzy

It’s kind of obvious here that I will stick to Photoshop due to my many grievances with Autodesk. I’ve had a giant boner for that program ever since I started using it to draw a few years ago because it’s so easy for me to use and there are so many ways to edit what I’m doing. Honestly, I'm like a PC gamer who thinks people should only use PC and shuns any other platform.

There are people who want something cheaper or easier to use, but I recommend using the free trial for Clip Studio and SAI before trying this one out. Plus, both are cheaper long-term (Clip Studio: One payment of $50 if you want PRO and $219 if you want EX — SAI: One payment of roughly $48, but it could be higher since you have to pay in yen). A good free alternative is Medibang, whih you can also use on a mobile device.

I have seen amazing things done in this program though. However, it’s just not my thing. Although again, I bust a nut when I use Photoshop so I’m highly opinionated and you should try the program yourself.
