Anonymous asked: hi there!! i love your tattoo thursday designs. i was wondering, for next tuesday or anytime, could you draw something involving planets?? it's okay if you don't have time or don't want to, i don't want to sound demanding at all, just a suggestion!! i love your art!

Planets was actually requested before so it’s in my tattoo tuesday idea list. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get back to doing them regularly but I’m glad you guys are still interested in them :- ) 

nata5 asked: So I'm 3/4 of the way through my first year at art school and I wanted to ask what are some of the most important things you've learned through your education? And also you might get asked this a lot but what's an effective way you found to learning to paint digitally? I really love your art btw and I'm only badgering you with questions because I look up to you!!

Don’t worry about it, I love getting questions! 

Um, well I don’t exactly follow my own advice all the time but just stay organized, don’t procrastinate too much (like I’m doing right now UGH), and draw a lot. ALSO try to experiment when you can, don’t be afraid to try something new because I find it helps out a lot for developing style or learning a new technique. 

I don’t find art school very hard it’s just a TON of work which is difficult to spread out sometimes… If you hand everything in on time you will be okay but also try to find time to draw for yourself because school can be stressful and it’s nice to unwind with personal art! 

As for digital painting I find working from dark to light helps a lot. I’ll fill the whole canvas with a dark colour to start (usually dark blue or a dark grey) and work my way to lighter tones and build up highlights on that initial dark layer. 

But honestly, you’ll find a style and technique that works best for you as you go along. I’ve tried countless styles and techniques throughout the years and it just naturally comes out. 

Thank you so much though, I appreciate it!! Good luck in art school, I know it’s tuff stuff

OH P.S  actually the most important thing I learned so far is making contracts THEY’RE SO IMPORTANT. ALWAYS MAKE A CONTRACT FOR ILLUSTRATION WORK!! ALWAYS. And read over/negotiate contracts or else you might sign all of your rights away to someone else. super super important.

Anonymous asked: What kind of pen / marker(s) have you been using to ink for inktober?

I’m glad you asked! I was gonna post my materials at the beginning but I forgot to so here they are:

image

1. standard black india ink for when I use the nib pen and for washes
2. red and gold ink for accents (red is also for washes)
3. ratty old pencil to sketch stuff out
4. eraser
5. holder + nib (I have two different nibs I use but this one is my fav)
6. MY BABY - pentel pocket brush pen - I use this the most for lines 
7. and various sized brushes (sometimes I line with them, sometimes I used them to shade things in and bigger ones are for washes and filing stuff in)

GOD I’M SO BEHIND ON INKTOBER THO I will post a lot shortly 

also most of the time I’ll just add a digital ink wash in photoshop if I’m lazy 

I started this as a sketch for a 3 way art meme but then I ended up colouring it too… MY BAD
