If you give me a Llama and I don't comment a thank you on your page: I'm sorry! I don't always check my mail and it could be months before I actually see you've given me one. I always appreciate it my goodness thank you for being so kind and giving me a cute little friend <3
My name is Raven, I'm a 18 year old girl from Canada who loves horses and art. I have been drawing all my life but have only taken it seriously in recent years. Horses are normally what I do although you might see the random person or creature here and there. I would also eventually like to expand into perspective since I was taught how to do it a few years ago but never really continued with it.
I don't take commissions or requests, my art is a delicate matter, I hate most of it and on the rare occasion I make something I really like. I excel in photo editing and manipulation after years of practice but I would really like to draw like those I look up to. So long story short; I hate my art and would wonder why anyone would want anything I draw.
The horses I usually draw are in a cartoonish style, big eyes that carry expression, no mouth line when it is closed and occasionally eyebrows if I feel like it. I am also able to draw more realistic horses if I'm careful but I like my cartoonish style more.
I struggle with drawing manes and tails, hair has always been an issue for me and only just recently have I found something I like and hope I can stick to, regardless if something sucks in a piece it's likely the mane and tail.
I also struggle with colouring. I have avoided learning how to colour on a computer for a long time and am now just regretting it. I can do it fine on paper and like the way I colour on paper, but in photoshop and SAI it's entirely different.
I learn from videos and tutorials here on DA, if you're self-taught like me and want to expand than you can find some tutorials in my favourites if you're interested, it's mostly horses though. As time goes by I will surely add more. For now enjoy!
