FAQ | Frequently Asked Questions




:bulletblue:What type of pencil do you use?
0.5 lead mechanical pencil or colored pencils.

:bulletyellow:What do you ink with?
Black Micron Ink Pens in sizes: 005, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 08, Brush Pen, All sizes of Sharpie Markers, Biro | Ball Point Pens

: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: How do you make your colored pencil pictures look so...vibrant in color?
In order to make one color portion I usually layer at least three different color pencils to intensify the color and add a little originality in the shade of color. Ex. Going over a yellow section with blue to make it have "cooler" shading in some sections.

: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

: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.

:bulletblue: Why do you like Diet Coke so much?
Hmm, mainly because I get a little too jittery from sugar filled sodas and don’t especially like them. On the other hand it is what I grew up drinking because both of my parents would fill the fridge with it, as any fridge I use for a while gets to be. It’s more or less my stress relief drink, I get a bit weird if I go too long without Diet Coke in my system. I’ve done enough studying up on aspartame to not be bothered by having it in my system via the Diet Coke, would rather have that than what most young adults stuff in their system.

Do you do free requests?




I only draw gifts / requests for friends I know on a personal level, 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.

Convention Schedule


For conventions I am attending as a member of the Artist Alley.
