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!

This is because I'm moving into university later next month so I wanna get rid of as much of my old art as possible, hence the massive reduction. So I'd be very grateful if anyone wants to take my sketches off me - I probably won't do a discount this big again for a looong time.

That aside, personal issues and a currently busted tablet pen have put my art-making on hold for a while. I won't go into detail (and trust me, I'm kind of disappointed with myself because I was really hoping to work on some bigger digital projects this summer) but IRL stuff has kind of sucked the energy out of me, plus preparing for going to college in a month or so means I'm very busy! I'm trying to stay occupied/positive, but it's really overwhelming. I'll be okay, though! I think. :)

That aside, one year after becoming an anime fan I'm showing no signs of stopping... along with my current slew of sports shows, I'm also branching out into some other genres (trust me I'm watching about 10+ in total oh god) and also I'm watching Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann... which I was NOT prepared for. At all. Geez.

And to top that all off, I'm gonna be 19 on the 28th. Wow, I feel old.

Have a great rest of your vacation! I'll probably be a little quiet on here over the next few weeks whilst I deal with the whirlwind IRL right now, but hopefully I can still update my blog with sketches...
