Artist Ask Answers #2

11 and 18
11. How many art-related blogs do you follow?
I follow a couple! Mostly art blogs that give me inspiration and great resource ones. Here on tumblr I just follow 209… I keep it down cause I don’t want to miss out on updates from my favorite artists and friends. 

18. What are you currently trying to improve on?
I want to be better at digital coloring so right now I focus on color theory+shadow/light. 
The last few. 25, 26, 27, 28? :3
25. Do you like to draw in silence, or with music?
I hope this makes sense…
I like to draw while listening to music… and having silence in the background. If I hear anything else besides my music then I can’t focus too well. Like conversations, outdoor live, the TV and so on(can be troublesome during work too…)

26. For digital artists: what program(s) do you use?
I use Photoshop and Illustrator the most!
27. For digital artists: how many layers does a typical piece require?

Oh boy… from 1-150………or even more orz.. I use a lot of layers!
28. For traditional artists: what medium do you like most? (Pencil, charcoals, etc)
I like the pencil, markers and watercolours the most. 
I hope these answers are enough<3

29 + 30? :)

29. For traditional artists: How do you usually start on a big piece? (Light sketch, colored lead, sketchpaper, etc)

I usually start with sketching out the idea that I have in mind, and then when I am satisfied with it I sketch it out again but on a new paper sheet( if I am going to use watercolours or other medium!)

I use red color for sketching since if I decide to ink it or use pencil over it then I can remove the red colour in Photoshop and have a clean artwork(works with light blue too!)

For line art I usually go for a brown colored pencil instead of just using black since personally I think it gives the drawing a little bit more warmth and life into it. I added a progress pic to show how I work :) 

30. What inspires you to not just make art, but to be a better artist?

I sometimes receive comments from people that have mentioned that I inspire them and that they want to become a better artist. These kind of comments INSPIRE me to become a better artist so I can continue to inspire them back<3 there is probably much more to say but this is one of them!
5,6,7 and 12?
5.What’s your favorite thing to draw?

My favorite thing to draw is pretty women… I don’t really why but that is what I usually sketch in my books! Also cats… a lot of random cats!
6.What’s your least favorite thing to draw?

That would be vehicles…  mostly because I am not good draw those..orz
7.How often do you use references?

All the time! I just can’t guess and then draw it! I learn so much by using references. Of course by that I mean anatomy, animals etc etc
12.Is it okay for people to ask you about your process?

Of course! I don’t mind answering them :) I don’t know if I have the time to make a tutorial but I do have time to share advice and little progress pictures. 

Artist Asks!
