Hi there! I found your artwork on an Undertale remix so I decided to check you out.
and holy fudge you are amazing.
I wanted to congratulate you for being such a good artist and I really want to know what program you use! I am currently using photoshop, but I don't always get the result I want with my art. Tips if you can plz!!!!

Lol, I think I know which remix you're talking about, and thank you :) 

I use Photoshop CC, and currently paint on the Surface Book. I enjoy the Surface Book because of its thin glass and high resolution, it feels much more natural to work on than the Cintiq, even though its not as strong as Wacom's product. That said Microsoft is going to announce its "All in one PC" sometime next month I believe, and it sounds like it might be a real competitor to the Cintiq due to its size and touch screen surface. 

As for other tips, that depends which direction you want to go? Hit me back with some more questions. 

And lol, my birthday was in July, but thank you regardless.

I kinda want to learn more on how to make things more realistic and get good at shadowing and perspective. I can always see how I want it to come out, but then it never comes out how I want it to. I'm trying to work on something like this right now actually. What do you think of it? sta.sh/01y775edfr6i Plz let me know any critiques! Oh, and thanks for helping out... >////<

For what you're asking, drawing from life will be best, and working traditionally for the time being. While Photoshop is a powerful program, it's best utilized when you're bringing the techniques you learned from pencil, painting or any number of methods of working traditionally. Time and perseverance are also key, as well as find the right classes and teachers. 

For learning lighting and shadow, setup a two or three objects in a dark room and shine a lamp on them. You'll want to study not only the form and shadow, but how the color bounces of the correlating surface and objects. It helps to take a photo if you have a powerful camera, and to set the photo to gray-scale to better understand the values. I recommend beginning with black and white, and as you advance in lighting and shading, to then pick up color. 

Once you switch to color, be your choice acrylic or oil paints, learning how to mix colors is just as important as learning how to apply them. That said, color did not come easily to me and I was very stubborn and impatient, lol. I personally learned color best when switching to hard pastels, because I couldn't deal with how long it took paint too dry : P 

I did try learning all of these things in Photoshop first with little success. Working from life and doing things traditionally is the way to go first if you want to understand how to make things look realistic. Applying that knowledge later to Photoshop is how you make things feel real.
