FAQ | Frequently Asked Questions








:bulletblue:What type of colored pencils + watercolor do you use?
Crayola Colored Pencils. I use Crayola watercolors as well as generic watercolors as I find them. I don't get into the expensive sort, as I've found I can still produce equally satisfying pieces using less pricey materials.

:bulletyellow:What Pencils and Pens do you use?]
Pencils: BIC Mechanical pencils, school standard writing pencils, colored pencils.
Pens: BIC Pens, any pens, Microns, white gel pen.

:bulletblue:What kind of erasers/rubbers do you use?
Pink school standard or any sort I come across (sketch/doodle works) Grey Kneaded(serious works, comics). Only use the attached pieces to pencils if other options are not available. Use a soft make-up brush to sweep off any dust left behind.

:bulletyellow:What programs do you use in digital pieces?
Photoshop CS / Photoshop CS4. Currently use HP Touchsmart Tablet laptop.

:bulletblue: What brush size do you use for digital pieces?
Generally I use 4pt when at full scanned image size. I zoom in a lot though, to make it look more crisp when I decrease the image size in the end. For "chibi" or small looking characters I range from 5pt to 9pt so that when it's shrunken down the lines are still thick enough.



:bulletyellow: What do you do when you hit an art block or boost your creativity?
Watch films that have captivated me in the past. Read comics that fueled my art before. Revisit certain series or novels. Re-draw old pieces of my art to prove to myself that I have improved at least somewhat and it all is worth it still.

:bulletblue: Favorite thing to draw?
Abstract imagery. It gives me the chance to try to not think too hard about what I’m trying to make, but rather just enjoy what I am doing while I do it.

Taking winter by the HORNS

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 27, 2014, 7:33 PM

EDIT FEB. 22: Moving into my new apartment and settling in! May take a little longer than normal for updates of submissions + commission progress. Thanks for patience!

----------
In case there's any who don't have me on instagram yet: instagram.com/colormymemory

I seem to post more actively on there for my personal artworks and quick sketches or warm-ups, and my many to-be-finished drawings of Ig Perrish from HORNS. Which by the way, the HORNS film finally was released this last October via select theatres and on Video-On-Demand services online! It has some changes, of course, to the book, but overall I found it to be downright entertaining and capture the bizarre blend of genre and morals as the novel by Joe Hill, which is wonderful and where I dove into the story first awhile back. Also, to my happy self I was given a local theatre's poster for HORNS (with my favorite illustration released for the film with Iggy's silhouette with the big ol' horns on it) which is too freakin' cool to boot to me still. Though unfortunately the reason they were up for giving it away was because the theatre ended up not picking up the film distribution (which was a bit of a bummer, but the online option worked as good viewing regardless). If y'all are the type to have a dark humor and aren't offended (or emotionally irked) too easily (and are 17+) do check out the film and the novel if you haven't, it's by far my favorite book and certainly in my top ten favorite films. Oh, and it has the lovely Dan Radcliffe starring, who's one good-looking devil.

This winter I've been doing a lot of Art Commissions and have mainly been uploading these sorts of arts on dA, since I've been focusing on keeping myself busy through commissioned works since lifestyle wise things have been quite stressful. Though, I won't detail how so since I don't like dancing for pity pennies (prefer to keep personal life personal, and not for show). Going to start up on uploading more of my drawings for fun and for myself, and convention related artworks after the sale is done and I've settled into the new year itself. :)

Do you do free drawings?






I only draw free for those I know on a personal level, sometimes, unless otherwise stated. But really, sometimes I will draw things in response to what others say or ask online, sometimes.If you're wanting to catch one of these times they happen more frequently via: colormymemory.tumblr.com/ I'll sometimes draw as a form of responding to questions sent there when I'm in the mood to answer that way. Not sure if that really qualifies as a 'request' though.

"Why won't you draw commissions before payment?"
