I think I fell in love with your art and it's inspiring me to work more now e-e;;, it's absolutely perfect and I have a question when using your markers for color how do u keep that light shade that gives your sunglasses that look it's hard wrapping my mind on it.
thank you! i just use lighter/less contrasting colors for that area compared to the rest of the pic (like gray lines instead of black ones)
How did you became an artist for gaia online? ; o; Your art is beautiful!! I wish someday I could draw something for them too! ; v;
a bunch of my friends were working there and encouraged me to send in my portfolio+resume :) i don’t think they’re hiring right now but they do open artist spots up every now and then, keep an eye on gaiainteractive.com
Not sure if you were asked this already, but how are you able to sell copyrighted characters on your merchandise? I was thinking about selling some MLP phone cases, but I don't wanna get in trouble.
hopefully this is the answer you’re looking for! http://barachan.tumblr.com/post/71249463980/i-really-enjoy-your-style-regarding-fanart-how-do
tl;dr with a few exceptions, most companies care way less than we think they do, so long as you aren’t straight up bootlegging their stuff and/or mass producing your merchandise
How do you get that grainy effect on your digital art? Is it a type of brush you use? I just recently started using PS CC and I still don't know how to use it orz
photoshop’s “add noise” filter!
Gotta say that I really am envious of your 'geometric' coloring style. I think it gives a very stylized look, but ends up ultimately looking very natural when you step back and look at the whole image. The rendering seems very systematic (in a good way), and I'd love to have it explained. Is there anyway you could do a 'tutorial' in which you break down the coloring style and what you're thinkin' while you make certain artistic decisions?
honestly i don’t know how to explain it, i’m sorry :( it’s something i just kind of run with as i work…it’s possible there is some subconscious reasoning/method behind it, i just have no idea how to put it into words lol
I figured I should have send a TA instead. W-will you not be selling the pouch/purse of 130825 bunny online? Been waiting for them to be available since you posted a teaser for them > w < /post/85230634194 && have you finished the NeoQueenSerenity you showed a WIP of before? /post/81413568621 Thank you very much for the time ~
i’d like to sell them online eventually, it’s just that the ones i’ve had made have sold out at the conventions i brought them to! once i’m done with cons for the year (AWA will be my last one) i’ll see what i can do about getting some more for online sales
the NQS image was meant to be a cover for a mini b&w zine i wanted to do for moon crisis, so the image itself is done but i wasn’t able to finish the rest of the zine before shipping my show pieces over, so that project is on hold for now
i was just wondering if you had any tips/tricks for painting with acrylics?? your art is so lovely and beautiful !!
thank you!! tbh i’m not that great with acrylics because i haven’t used them much so i can’t say i have any insightful info to share (yet.) sorry i couldn’t be more helpful!
Hello Rose! First of all I'd like to thank you for the sketchbook, its awesome! I really love the doodle you did of my bunny ^^ Onto the question: Do you have any resources/books/sites that you personally recommend to artists who want to get into graphic design? I've been thinking about doing some dabbling in it so I could perhaps apply some of that knowledge into my own art! The way you compose your pieces are really spunky!
hey, i’m so glad you liked it! thank you for ordering one!!
for composition (relating to illustration,) i recommend arthur wesley dow’s book on the subject — there’s some good info about line, motif, notan etc.
for general graphic design, i love jason santa maria’s site. the grid system has some useful stuff for, well, designing on grids, and fontshop has free ebooks about typography
hi~ *soft poke*
