Anonymous asked: Hey! I love your artwork, you are super talented. I am trying to improve my digital skills, especially in photoshop. What brushes do you use, and do you have any tips for illustrating? :)
Aw thanks! You’re too kind!
Brushes I use are ones I’ve gathered throughout the years and now a days I make my own by using existing photoshop default brushes and tweaking them in the settings. As for tips for illustrating, I like to be real loose with my sketches. It gives them more life to them rather than cleaning them up completely. Of course this isn’t something to follow, but that’s how I like to work :) Hope this helped!
Anonymous asked: I love your work! Were you ever scared of starting a job in the industry/being the best at your job? How did you handle any fears/anxieties you had about your artwork.
Aw you’re too kind, thank you! Sorry this took a few days to answer. I had to think about how to answer this!
As a growing artist, I’ve discovered that fear never really goes away. However, having fear to me isn’t always seen as a negative thing to me. If anything, it drives you more. It makes your brain think more and forces you to actually make something when you’re under stress/anxiety. Like deadlines. Somehow, at the last minute, that’s when a lot of the work gets done.
But in terms of how to handle anxieties? I do something non-art related. Hang out with friends, go out exploring! Distract the mind and enjoy life :)
I hope this somewhat helps, as this is a hard question and there isn’t really a right answer!
