*A warning note about my twitter + tumblr, on those I often use profanity and make crude jokes at times, however I am polite to users with good intentions. So feel free to drop by and send in any questions!
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 Elements 8.0 via HP Touchsmart Tablet laptop or Bamboo Wacom tablet.
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.
ARTISTS: Quick notice,
If any of y'all use Paypal, and got a suspicious email asking you to update your Paypal info (like address, bank, etc) or claiming your account to be Limited/frozen that does not have the verified symbol next to it, or that leads you to a page that does not say Paypal’s verified URL, do not submit any of your info. It is a Phising Scam! To check on your Paypal account’s status, log into your Paypal, if there is an issue with your account (or need to update an address, etc) that is the ONLY place Paypal will ask for that sort of thing. (as stated in their Contact & resources.)
If you get a scam e-mail, immediately forward it to PayPal’s security review " firstname.lastname@example.org " and block the address / label as Phishing Scam the email came from.
I love using Paypal, as I’m sure others do too, so I thought to share that info in case it helps someone out.
I only draw free for those I know on a personal level, sometimes, unless otherwise stated.
If you want art drawn by me for you, I am open for Art Commissions:
