@Anonymous

2. Show your pencilcase and what’s inside.

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

this lemur thing on my class notes is the last thing I drew that isn’t on here already

image

4. Lineart or coloring?
gonna say lineart but it depends on the picture

5. Who/what inspires you?
oh boy. i’m not even gonna scratch the surface with this one but uH HERE’S SOME ARTISTS I LOOK AT A LOT: mike mignola, egon schiele, Nicolas Delort, Leyendecker, gustave doré, ralph steadman, stefan sagmeister, philip burke, cliff roberts, stephen gammell, dave mckean, mikkel sommer, leppu/prague race, musa, verticalvest, odlaws, diigii, eli and olidevcrap, wow phew ok im stopping.
wait no im not stopping. Warren Fu’s videos and esp. his work for phrazes for the young. Arcade Fire, esp. the suburbs, the Libertines, Sean Pecknold and robin pecknold and fleet foxes, radiohead/thom yorke. going to concerts inspires me so i try to do that when i can
im also really into judeo-christian iconography and i think spn is to blame for at least part of that which is kind of embarrassing
although speaking of that the movies and shows i watch obv influence me a lot, not just like in a fanart way but like the cinematography of hannibal and the design in wes anderson’s stuff and quentin tarantino’s colors etc, Laika’s everything, actually just like animation in general is usually hugely inspiring

6. Just did that one!

7. Do you have any OCs?
I have a pitiful amount of OCs that I’ve actually drawn, most of them are from high school and most of them are furries and one of them is a guy that accidentally became my alter ego on tegaki in like 2009. shoutout to anyone who knew me on tegaki and thought i was an asshole teenage boy
there are more interesting ones i have yet to draw but here’s the few i’ve drawn before

8: Do you listen to music when you draw? Favorites?
yes, but what I listen to really depends on the mood of whatever i’m drawing. i listed a few above. if I wanna get a lot of shit done i listen to sigur ros

9: Favorite thing to draw?
ugly weird animals, monsters, wings/feathers, hugh dancy’s face

10: Least favorite thing to draw?
shoes!!! muscles. if i don’t have like a really specific reference pic i will be shit at drawing arm muscles. backgrounds, i get impatient so easily and never do perspective lines so everything looks horrible

im sorry

1 and 12 pls :)

@Anonymous

1. Take a picture of your workspace.

ah yes this is the highly organized desk in my dorm

12. Any weird artist behaviour you admit doing?

when i’m drawing I make really goofy faces and tilt my head a lot but that seems like it might be a common thing. uhhhh hmmm on occasion I draw the skeleton of a thing first and then draw everything else over that? I also put my tablet to the right side of my laptop instead of in front of me which people have told me is unusual

Do you have any tips on drawing you can give me?

ahh gosh let’s see…. for that pic in particular, it helped to focus on the planes of the face, blocking in basic shapes and trying to avoid using outlines. Also, it was a timed 10 minute drawing and that’s always good in that it forces you not to overwork it (which is something I struggle with a lot), and usually helps keep drawings loose.
i’m sorry if these are too specific to this drawing, I am certainly no expert on charcoal techniques! “drawing tips” in general covers a pretty wide field, so if you want any advice on something specific send me an ask and I’ll see if I can help out c:
