I have been drawing since age 4, before I even started school. I've been drawing lots of dinosaurs. Then I moved on to Pokémon, which is still a big interest to me, and other anime such as Dragon Ball Z. I've won quite a few awards for my traditional drawings. I also helped paint a mural in our school library. I began digital artwork in early 2007. I've improved much since then, and I hope to go further with my work.
Q&AHow long does it take to complete a one character (full body) art piece on average for you?
When I have all day, then just that one day. Sometimes 2-3 days or more, depending on my laziness.What do you typically do to get your creativity flowing?
Listen to music, browse artworks for inspiration and motivation. Sometimes quick doodles help me out.What piece are you most proud of? Why are you proud of it?
This piece is what I'm most proud of at the moment. This was actually made with ONLY A MOUSE in Photoshop! I experimented with styles, played around with brushes, and took advantage of the tools Photoshop has to offer. I really love the outcome of this! I still can't believe I made this *u*Traditional & Digital: What type of software and equipment do you use?
Before I had a tablet, I'd sketch out on paper and scan it into Photoshop and work from there. Now that I have a tablet (Bamboo Create), I'm saving paper and having a blast with drawing on it. It's so fun.
Tools/software I use: Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop CS5, mouse, Bamboo Create tabletWho are your favorite artists on DeviantART and why is their art so appealing to you?
I have quite a lot. One of them is definitely *ntdevont
*u* The moment I saw a piece from him, I fell in love with his style! His anatomy appeals me! He is sooo good with it! The same goes to *ichan-desu
. What websites, books, or stock accounts do you use for reference if there are any?
Hmm, I barely look for reference. Sometimes I just google for some references What was your most challenging moment in your art career? How did you over come it?
I can't seem to recall a challenging moment. Haha, I guess not having a tablet was a big challenge for me because I get so sick and tired of scanning my sketches and linearting in Photoshop with the Pen Tool. It was a horrible experience.What is a piece of advice that you'd like to give to other artists?
Just keep on drawing! Do your best! Practice, practice, practice! It doesn't make perfect, but it does make better! Look around for inspiration, it's everywhere! Also practice with different styles and soon you will develop your own unique style!Additional comments:
