Thank you!

For applying, bottom line: Just Draw

Begin prep as early as is realistic. DEFINITELY read the requirements well and have a good idea of what sort of material you need to prepare. 

What I did: pored over forums, looked at way too many portfolios, stressed, drew, cried a lot.

It’s super stressful but it’s rewarding. Even if you get rejected, you can always try again, use that as motivation to improve even more. If you commit, you can do it! Most of all, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.

Good luck!

Artist Ask Meme

So I collectively got asked all the questions (o u guys) so HERE I GO gonna compile it all into one!.

1: Take a picture of your workspace.

image

I basically live here i.e it’s a giant mess i.e don’t be me.

2: Show your pencil case and what’s inside.

I switch it up from time to time. I used to more use more microns, now I’m leaning towards ball point ink pens.

3: Show a thing you last drew, no matter how small or a “doodle” it is.

The last thing I actually drew was my film animatic but i’m too lazy to fetch the file so here’s something from my sb during art club. It is very good i like it i am incredible.

4: Lineart or coloring?

Both are important. I love ink though, trad and digital, but i don’t do lineart usually just a bs half sketch.

5: Who/what inspires you?

Lots of people azertip feature haha, people in the animation industry, people who are very clever with their art in design placement (so much awe), but also people who have indomitable spirits and great work ethic, people who are nice and make me feel motivated cause they’ve got such a nice spirit. People who have gone through a lot of shit but stick it up and use it to create something ferocious and fantastic.

6: Draw a same pic with your dominant and non-dominant hand.

7: Do you have any OCs?

NO WHAT??? OCS HAHAHA.

I actually should draw them more though. Poor poor neglected outdated ocs.

8: Do you listen to music when you draw? Favorites?

YUP

Janelle Monae | Stromae | Supercell | Kenshi Yonezu | Akiakane | Teki-P | Deco*27 | VOCALOID IN GENERAL K | Bastille | MIKA | Regina Spektor | Daft Punk | Standing Egg | High School Musical (the pleasure that i iron on my chest and display for the world to see)

and more….

9: Favorite thing to draw?

Cat Ladies, Lisa Frank, lumpy fat things (i.e fingers, kids, skin folds), 

10: Least favorite thing to draw?

bikes *painful wheezing*

11: Draw a pic of yourself like how you look just now.

you caught me in a barad mood

12: Any weird artist behavior you admit doing?

I don’t care anymore when I stare at people while drawing them. They gotta get over it. 

i sporadically check to see if i’ve lost any pens. Actually becoming more serious about art has made me lose way less art supplies because this stuff costs me an earlobe.

Whenever I do nothing i keep thinking about my ocs. Actually i think about art daily. I think about it every waking moment of my day. Heh heh, hey kids, wanna get into art. Ya better think about it all day and draw it all day womp womp.

I did it. I did the entire thing. Goodnight

I haven’t actually posted this yet but I drew this back in Dec for my portfolio. yeee
