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

Commission AdvertsHey guys!StrangelyIsolated

Happy New Year (and kiribans)Happy new year everyone!AssortedA
That aside, I have a kiriban coming up, but instead of posting about just one, I'm going to list upcoming kiribans and their prizes:
12,000 pageviews ... 120 (caught!)12,500 pageviews ... free halfbody (caught!)13,000 pageviews ... 130 (caught!)
Things to note:
* Must provide screenshot/picture of pageviews
* The number must be either exact or above the kiriban number
That's pretty much it, I'll still be working on other requests and stuff. Keep on striving to improve.
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?"
