now some kinda FAQ:

What brushes do you use?

Brushes are taken from all over with some of my own sprinkled in. I think everyone uses the same brushes by now, there are a lot of duplicates in most sets. Here are the main contributors (afaik) of my current setup:
Jaime Jones
Maciej Kuciara
Jama Jurabaev

What is your style/inspiration/method?

I've lumped all these together because the answer is almost the same. I don't know or nothing/everything.
I study to forget so that everything becomes instinctual. Then you just pick up little pieces of info along the way and add it to the stew.

Do you have any advice about composition, colour theory or anatomy?

I do but it's really pointless answering, there's no uncommon knowledge in these basic fields. You'll find the same material being repackaged in articles/dvds/books/gumroad videos over and over again. Expose yourself to it when you start out, then I think refreshing the knowledge around every 3 years is enough. You'll probably find things that didn't make sense before, suddenly click.
Everything should already be out there for free somewhere.

Do you have any advice (general)?

Use the clipping mask.

Deconstruct everything that matters to you.

Too much proficiency kills your work. This one's down to personal taste but I find that after a few seconds of technical admiration, I'm bored when faced with highly proficient work. It doesn't matter whether that's realism or just very typically stylised. It's too predictable so I don't want to explore the image (unless there's some other aspect to grab my attention). 

you won't be a good artist if all you know is how to paint/draw/render.

Commit thoughtcrime.

Lift with your legs -_-

Do you have any prints for sale anywhere?…

As always thanks for the comments and faves.
