Anonymous asked: hey can you post some sort of tutorial? or the brushes you use? your art is amazing
I pretty much just use three brushes: standard, a scratchy pencily brush, and water color brush….and unfortunately I got the latter two from a teacher and I couldn’t tell you where to find them online….I have a bazillion brushes but I just fumble around with those three. The thing is I still feel like I don’t really know what I’m doing most the time…..hahahaaaaaa;;;; I don’t really know what I’m doing, I’m just good at faking it. I definitely have a process…once I figure out what that is I will make a tutorial!
Anonymous asked: MY GOD please tell me your hades and persephone designs are for a film because wow i would love to see those two in action, amazing!
I wasn’t planning on making a film this year bc I took last semester off and wasn’t preparing anything! I came up with the Hades and Persephone stuff bc I wanted it for my portfolio, but I have been thinking of trying to make a short with them…if I can! I will try! No promises!
Anonymous asked: Any advice or artists i should look at to give my character designs more variety? I really love your art btw <333
I never know what to suggest when people ask for artist inspiration, tho I know theres plenty that inspire me…
But more than that just don’t be afraid of experimenting. For me it can be really hard to push outside my comfort zone but doing that is what always improves my work. Make lots of sketches and lots of thumbnails, just do them for yourself and don’t worry about them looking stupid or readable. Make a bunch of crazy shapes! Then pick a theme, like old dudes or dogs or little kids and try to make characters with the same shapes. Research research research is important. Discover new things. Although sometimes I think I can research too much and have a bunch of references all around me and then I just feel overwhelmed….but that’s just me. Draw the faces of random people you see! Don’t let a cool face pass you by!
Anonymous asked: How do you get out of art blocks? :)
First, I cry and pull my hair out and wonder why I ever pursued art in the first place.
Then I just sit and wait until I see some cool art that inspires me to try something new. Or I watch a cool movie that gets me thinking in a different way. I just have to take a break and be patient and explore other things. It can be long and frustrating sometimes though, especially because sometimes I don’t FEEL like “exploring”, I just wanna sit down and draw darn it!
Anonymous asked: how do you create your traditional watercolor illustrations? for example, in the gen 1 pokemon, what process did you use? do you do lines first? what do you use? thanks :o)
The pokemon actually aren’t watercolor, they’re prismacolor markers! For those I blocked them out with a col-erase pencil, inked them with a brown micron pen and then used the markers. I work in layers with the markers a lot, so it can look like watercolor I suppose
