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 Elements 8.0 via HP Touchsmart Tablet laptop or Bamboo Wacom tablet.

: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.

Sale: sketches + Sweatercats info

In case there's any who don't have me on instagram yet: instagram.com/colormymemory  
Art Status: Prepping for SabakuCon April 24-26, 2015  NM anime / comic convention. Commissions open.

I'm really liking drawing these rough color sketches, where I spend less than 10 minutes on each of them, and have been offering to do them as on-sale commissions via this forum thread: forum.deviantart.com/community…   They're 200points instead of the normal 500points for a bust sketch of a character, since I could use them as breaks between working on bigger art pieces of my own or as art warm-ups. Also am open to drawing busts of Fan Art characters, anthro / furry / cat / animal / etc. characters as these sort of color sketches too! If you want one just comment in the thread with the info or this journal!

200points sale examples of my own:
Bleu - color sketch ex. by ColorMyMemory     Sora color sketch ex. by ColorMyMemory    

200points  sale commissioned sketches:
Commission: Kourumi for Whimsical-Sage (Godiva) by ColorMyMemory    sketch commission: NanashimaNanase (Yukine) by ColorMyMemory


 It's also good practice for me getting more acquainted with drawing on a tablet that is disconnected to the screen (as in I no longer draw on to the screen itself like I'm used to).

Colormymemory Commissions Special: Pastel Pokemon by ColorMyMemory



& for any who have been wondering what's up with all the little cats in sweaters, well, I've started to take on "Sweatercats" kitty commissions / customs / adopts via my group :iconthesweatercats: + this dA account too of course. I normally would only do these at Conventions at my Artist Alley booth via sketch card, but I had others online wanting their own so I've taken this hobby up! Plus, I already draw Sweatercats all the time prior, so it's good. Any commission / custom Sweatercats (that aren't "OC" designs) will be showing up on my online shops too.

currently OPEN Sweatercats adopts: 
Sweatercats adopt 1 OPEN by ColorMyMemory   Sweatercats adopt 2 OPEN by ColorMyMemory   Sweatercats adopt 3 OPEN by ColorMyMemory


commissioned / custom Sweatercats:

Do you do free drawings?







I only draw free for those I know on a personal level, sometimes, unless otherwise stated.
