Here you can find all of my artist tools that I use to create my artwork, my photography and what I use for website.
These lists include affiate links.
1) Lenovo Flex 5– My Laptop is a 2 in 1 meaning I can use it as a tablet when I need the touch screen for creating art than I can use the keyboard when blogging and finding ideas on Pinterest. The model I have has a 14-inch screen, with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of ROM meaning I can run all my programs that I need without getting the dreaded blue screen of death.
2) Microsoft Surface Go – I use this for creating on the go, it does have the capability to run everything I need with the convenience of having a lightweight portable computer.
3) Cannon T6i DSLR – I use this for all 90% of my photography using the 75mm – 250mm lens almost every time when photographing landscapes. I use the 18mm – 55m lens for photographing macro shots such as flowers.
4) Samsung S8 Cell Phone – I use this camera for about 10% of my photography when I am not caring my DSLR with me. This camera takes surprisingly amazing photos.
5) Stylus – I use this for creating my digital art with my Surface Go or my Lenovo Flex Laptop.
1) DaFont – I use Dafont to get my fonts.
2) Myphotoshopbrushes – My Photoshop Brushes is a site where you can download a variety of photoshop brushes.
3) Brushezzy – Another site for downloading photoshop brushes.
4) Google Images – Google isn’t the most reliable source to find .PNG’s but I always start here then go from there. Once I find one, I click the image to take me to the site where the image is found. One of those site is https://pngtree.com. I use that site a lot! There are tons of sites where you can have unlimited .PNG and image files for a small monthly fee.
5) Placeit.net – I use this website to get my mockups to show brands how my designs would look on product without using the default mockups from the Print on Demand websites.
. Note: You will have to contact the authors of the images/fonts/brushes for commercial use if you plan on using them in work you plan on selling. ALWAYS give the original author credit. Don’t steal.
Most of the time I try to find free .PNG through Google.
6) Namecheap – Namecheap is where I host my WordPress website, and where I purchased the domain for my website. Their support is amazing! I highly recomend them ( See the plugins I use for my website in this blog post.)
7) Shareasale – This the affiliate program I use. There are so many merchants available and their website is so easy to use.
8) Amazon Associate Program – Another affiliate program.
9) Manychat – This is what I use for my Chat bot. I use a chat bot rather than old school email marketing.
10) Brandbassador – This a website I use to be a brand ambassador for Redbubble.
1) Corel Paintshop Pro – Corel Paintshop Pro is a Photoshop alternative. I prefer it because you don’t have to have a subscription for it and you don’t have to pay monthly for it. I feel like its easier to use than Photoshop as well. Of course if you used to Photoshop then, there will be a learning curve. Lucky for you, their website has a ton of tutorial videos.
2) Corel Draw – Corel Draw is an Adobe Illustrator alternative. I prefer it because you don’t have to have a subscription for it and you don’t have to pay monthly for it. I use this for bringing Paintshop raster files to vectors.
Most of the apps I use are free downloads that can be downloaded through the Google Play Store as well as Apples’ App store.
3) Picsart – PicsArt is honestly my go to app when I’m on the go and don’t have my computer. There is so much that can be done with this app. This app offers tons of stickers, fonts, and filters that can be used to make your images better. I use this app to create collages for promo ads as well!
4) Pixlr – Pixlr is a photo editing app like pics art but has filters that Picsart doesn’t.
