F.A.Q

OK I get a lot of repeat questions so I'll try and answer some of the more common ones here!

What programs/materials do you use?

A variety, but mainly normal HB/2B pencils, Photoshop CS3 and Paint Tool SAI. I always write what I've used for a particular drawing at the bottom of the artists' comments, so check there!

Have you ever taken art classes/are you planning to go into it as a career?

I've taken the basic art classes in school, through GCSE and now AS but I've dropped it now (too much work lmao). I've taken figure drawing and oil painting lessons outside of school too and they really help - I'd 100% recommend doing them if you get the opportunity! The stuff I learnt in school is pretty much all fine art so it's not much to do with what I post on here, but it's taught me valuable skills I'm very grateful for and am able to apply to what I do for fun.

I've kinda come to the conclusion that if I ever went into the industry it'd be for VisDev or illustration... However most of the art schools around England seem to be much more geared towards fine and studio arts since the particular sub industry I'm interested in is based in America, which is annoying. I'm currently not aiming for art school but it's definitely something I'd like to keep up and maybe go into later, I guess.

Have you got any tips/can you do a tutorial?

I'm nowhere near enough to make a tutorial, but if you visit my Tumblr and go onto my resources tag you may be able to find some useful stuff there. Alternatively, there are really great sources all over dA and the internet, so they're probably your best bet.

Do you take requests?

No, sorry. Please don't ask about these!

...Art Trades?

Occasionally, but more often than not I don't because I'm awful at drawing under pressure. If I ever do take them it'll usually be with artists who I mutually follow, or I will open a journal asking for them.

Do you do commissions?

Yup! Check my journal.

Can you join my contest/club?

The answer will most likely be no, sorry, since I haven't got much time for contests but there's no harm asking!

OK First things first I'm taking commissions for the summer: 

Info is HERE: andythelemon.tumblr.com/commis…
It's all on the post on my blog so if you're interested please read that and shoot me an email!

Additionally I'm trying to clear out most of my traditional art before I go to university, so use the code SUMMER2014 on my store here to get 40% off: etsy.com/shop/andythelemon


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, now that's out of the way I can actually update my journal properly...

Firstly, sorry for kind of trailing off here. That was because of my exams, but now I can happily say I'm done with secondary school forever! (Not going to think about results day next month...nope. Just hoping I've made the grades to get into university D:)

I know I've been posting kind of sporadically but I'm way more active on my art(ish!) blog, where I dump all my doodles that aren't clean enough for here. Now that summer's arrived and I have lots of free time I'm definitely hoping to get back into making more polished stuff and I also have a bunch of art trades and collabs lined up which should be fun! Plus I really want to improve my art as much as I can this summer so that means lots of anatomy practice and actually trying... to do something with my OCs. I've been really neglecting them lately but I want to develop them properly and get character profiles up at some point :)

Secondly I'm going to Rome later this month so maybe I'll get some inspiration to draw Percy Jackson again, who knows. It's kind of strange to think about how my train of obsessions has changed and diversified so much the past 2 years, come to think of it - it's roughly the one year anniversary of me becoming anime trash and honestly I'm still split between desperately trying to deny it and just indulging further. Oh well.
Korra and HTTYD2 (which I'll be seeing next week so no spoilers please) have suddenly made a big explosion back into my life and I have a string of new stuff to get into! Hopefully I'll start OiTNB and Young Justice soon, and I'm currently watching several animes that I just can't be bothered to list here but perhaps you'll see fanart of them crop up sometime.

Seriously, DO NOT start watching anime thinking it's something you'll just glide over - I started Free! as a JOKE and look where it took me. I'm kind of glad, though, because it's actually... forced me to draw boys and I think my art's grown more in the past year than ever before. Everything happens for a reason, I guess! Also I did consider cleaning out my gallery because let's be real, some of the stuff in here is SO terrible and cringe-worthy, but at the same time I sort of think it's good to compare to recent work to see the improvement?

Anyway that's all for now but thanks for sticking with me regardless of my terrible fandom hopping and hopefully I'll have some more decent stuff to post soon. Happy (Eternal) Summer! ;)

So I just raided your gallery for favorites.  Frankly, it would have been easier to just favorite everything and just take out the fandoms I'm not a part of.  I think I'm in love with your art style. :heart: I just want to look at your work all day, and I might now that many of your works are available for my viewing among my collection of favorites.  I'm so glad I found your page. :D
