Heyo 2011!~

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 1, 2011, 5:10 PM
Photobucket

trying out journal css!

CUT IT DOWN!~ This works as well XD

NOT MUCH COLOR HERM 8 But I like it <3

OMG TIME TO REPLACE EMPTY SPACE WITH A MEME DJJEFJ


Stolen from Skellagirl woop!

Few artists are man/woman enough to openly answer any and all questions thrown at them. Are you? Prove it. Copy/Paste this as a new journal entry and answer every question you get.

The rules are simple:

-You must answer every question you get no matter what it's about and you must do so honestly.

-There are no questions that cannot be asked as long as they are within the rules of DA. They can be personal, about OCs, and every thing in between.

Think of it as a truth or dare of sorts, only without the dare option.

Fun to do for new watchers, y/y? Don't be afraid~ : D

oh yeah! I got a haircut :'D

I have several questions for such a wonderful artist! I hope they don't seems to you silly :XD:

1). The most your favourited picture here? C=
2). How do you usually allocate your day? How are you aside time for lessons, drawing and other things? I'm really interested to know it =D
3). What music do you listen when you draw?
4). Okay, last question ... how often do you experience stress and how you fight with it?

I hope this is the normal questions. Thank you for your attention and sorry of my english x)))
I'm wondering how artists plan their days and have time to draw.

Not silly at all xD :giggle:

1) Like The most Faved? the Zim one- where they're all reacing to get the earth XD MY FAVE? Is....I like them all XD

2) Hrm- that's hard to answer because that's what I spend my time doing XD I just go to school and draw. Occasionally I hang out with my friends and travel with my parents to near by states. But I have to say besides art and school, I enjoy science and nature c:

3) Pretty much anything. I have my Itunes set at random when I draw on the computer. From Pogo to Train to The Spongebob Squarepants soundtrack- I love almost every single song on my Ipod and I can listen to them infinitely <3

4) I always deal with stress but I just ignore it XD I calm down and acknowledge the fact there's a solution to everything C: I'm pretty optimistic xD I either, listen to depressing songs to get the depression out, listen to happy/Disney songs to get my mind off of things or draw!

Hmm.

What did you do to get where you are today and what are your plans for the future?

I pretty much went along with whatever came my way. My school placed me in art classes for my 4 years of junior high. While my friends took two years of music and two years of art. I didn't even get recognized in my school as an 'artist' until I got to the 7th grade xD From there, I took art seriously and I'm majoring it in High School.

With my characters and such, I just went with whatever visual I had of a character and worked with it. The same goes for when I learned how to handle traditional and digital media.

For the future, I graduate this year and I'm applying to SVA. I plan on majoring in Animation. If that goes well, I also would like to do Illustrations on the side!~ My all time goal is to direct an animated feature film of my characters or start a line of merchandise with them!

What kind of a school is that? Four years of junior high, wow. I only have two at my school, and we pick our own electives.

That's really awesome. Your art is so amazingly vivid and full of life, when you've finished that in-the-future-movie I am definitely going to be first in line for tickets for the midnight premier.

Good luck with getting into SVA and executing your plans!
I can't wait to see what happens.
And thanks for giving such a long reply to that and for doing the question thing in the first place. It's interesting to know more about the people who post their art on here.

Okay.... umm.. will you have your journal skin available for use? >///<
Also, was there a hurdle you had to overcome when you first started drawing Despicable Me/Gru art?

elixirXsczjX13 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2011
:0 I can note you the CSS and the header XD I don't think you'd want the footer lol! Sure! : D

Oh totally. It was very difficult to do Gru justice XD I don't usually draw older characters- especially men D8. Keeping him at his age was hard.

Another thing was keeping him bald. I always had trouble with the scalp of any character. Normally, Once I get to the forehead I would draw the hair automatically. But with Gru, I learned how to draw older men and bald heads xD

Coloring him was another thing! Since we wears dark colors, shading and all was so hard not to use black xD. Difficult but awesome character fff

Honestly, I love digital and traditional equally. I feel comfortable in Paint Tool Sai as much as I do with colored pencils or markers. So, my favorite are those three medias :)

2. do you proud to have an awesome art? (yeah this is a pretty silly question ^^; somehow if i were u,i would am!!)

1. Happy XD There are rarely ever any popular cartooney artworks that are popular (excluding comics). Happy for that reason : )

2. It's not silly xD I'm proud of my artwork, yes : ) They're like daily accomplishments and keep me happy through the day xD

3. Oh.My.God. Sooooo many times XD A lot lately pf. Sometimes due to stress, deadlines, clinging to something too much or failing in something.

Hrm It doesn't bother me visually but there's just way too much of it XD. I started drawing manga to help me in poses and such so I like it for being helpful in anatomy. BUT- like on the popular deviations, it's a majority and it's not surprising xD.

I've got a question! (though it may be an dumb one)

Do you prefer Western or Eastern style cartooning?
Reply
:iconelixirxsczjx13:
elixirXsczjX13 Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011
I have like 3 books on how to draw Eastern style and it totally helped me with my style and such : ) So for basics, Eastern style. But I work best with western styles xD It's much easier to show more expressions and poses and such.

How do you color highlights traditionally? Like... do you color around the part you want to keep shiny and white or do you use white out or something?

ALSO: Favorite band ever?
Reply
:iconelixirxsczjx13:
elixirXsczjX13 Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011
Pretty much! I start with a base color and work around it : ) After that I add in hints of yellow with a colored pencil and finish off with a white gel pen.

EVER? Panic! at the Disco :heart:. All their songs are just love ;;;; Also the Killers D8 It's between those two.

What did you do to learn how to do poses?! Did you draw from life or did it just come to you after all that fanart? :la:

and if you don't mind...

When did you first start drawing?

BTW your art is AMAZING :heart:

:iconelixirxsczjx13:

Both! : ) I used to draw from Invader Zim episodes, it works! From there, once I started highschool I had to take observation drawing class and it helped me loads! We use to draw people and objects for 90 minutes @_@ it was worth it ;)

I started to draw since I was a kid xD Like 4 or so. Then I started to take drawing seriously when I was 13.
