!Attention Please do NOT use any of my art without permission. Thank you!
I'm getting a few questions lately so I decided that making this this would be a good idea =3. Hope it answers your questions! If you have one for me, just note me and stuff and I'll be more then happy to answer.
[ :q: ] Will you draw me a picture?
[ :a: ] At the moment? Nope o3o.
I'll be honest -- I'm lazy. I do occasionally draw pictures for very good friends of mine. But that is on occasion, so usually with a purpose... but yeah.
[ :q: ] Will you do an Art Trade with me?
[ :a: ] Nope! For the same reason as above.
[ :q: ] Will you draw me a something if I commission you?
[ :a: ] No, I am not accepting commissions at the moment for the same reasons as I've said above.
Also I'm kind of ehh about doing commissions because I like drawing very much! And I don't want to make it feel like a chore. It's how I relax and unwind and I'm scared of it becoming something stressful for me...
[ :q: ] Can I use your art?
[ :a: ] I actually don't mind, but I appreciate it if you PLEASE PLEASE ASK ME FIRST
And if you don't want to ask me, at least GIVE ME CREDIT FOR MY WORK
I do NOT tolerate people who claim to have drawn my art/copy my art. So just don't.
[ :q: ] What programs do you use to create your art?
[ :a: ] I use a combination of Adobe Photoshop CS3, Paint Tool Sai, openCanvas4.06E Plus, Corel Painter 8.0. I also use a Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet.
[ :q: ] What traditional media do you use?
[ :a: ] I use a lot of stuff.
For paper, I usually look for a large sketchbook, I like drawing large because I then have a lot of room to draw more comfortably. I'm picky with paper texture; I like looking for paper with a very smooth feel to it, but does not look glossy. I also tend to look for one with a good thickness; I find very thin paper does not absorb ink very well and also has a higher tendency to wrinkle when I erase (an example of that type of paper would be printer paper).
Other then that I like to use mechanical pencils with 0.7mm lead for drawing. For inking I like to use the felt tip waterproof pigmented ink with sizes ranging from 0.1-0.7. Sometimes I like using dip pens. I also have some white ink on hand for covering up mistakes and adding effects.
I usually use just a plain white eraser and an eraser stick. I also have one of those grey pliable erasers for cleaning up pencil smudges.
For colouring... I might occasionally use Prismacolor Scholar pencil crayons and I've occasionally use watercolor pencil crayons with a blender pen.
[ :q: ] Teach me how to draw like you!
[ :a: ] I plan on doing video tutorials on my art process that I will post on my Youtube
channel one day. Until I get off my lazy ass, there shall be nothing of the sort.
[ :q: ] You suck.
[ :a: ] Okay, thanks!!!! Unfortunately I can't say I learned anything from it. Next time try giving constructive
[ :q: ] Is there any other place I can contact you?
[ :a: ] Gmail
