Leave your questions in the comments below!,About the Artist@griffsnuff, also known as Griff or Tina, is a Norwegian artist who has been drawing for as long as she can remember. She has a degree in animation and has worked as a concept artist for Among the Sleep, an indie game created by Krillbite. She loves designing characters, settings, and the worlds ARPGs have, and her favorite project is the ARPG @Bagbeans. She currently volunteers for the Norwegian People’s Aid.Crate Details“‘Magic’ is a type of artwork that I absolutely love to create,” @griffsnuff says of the fantasy creature designs and nature-inspired backgrounds. A love of griffins prompted her to create her DeviantArt account years ago, and they are still her favorite fantasy creatures today! “I have always been fascinated with birds, so it was natural that this creature spoke to me.”In her art, @griffsnuff does not use a lot of brushes. “You can go a long way with one watercolor blending brush and a hard pen brush,” she advises, noting that painting a contrast between soft and hard can really drive a focal point and efficiently create different textures. Along with brushes, she uses Multiply to create shading and Overlay to add lighting and glow effects. “These two tools are easy to use and if you clip them to a shape with masks then you can paint without worrying about messing up the shapes,” @griffsnuff explains.“My personal paintings often start out with really rough sketches, and then I let the coloring and blocking out shapes dictate which direction the painting goes, which is why painting is a lot of fun,” @griffsnuff shares. "You never know what you end up with when you jump right into it!" The time-lapse video shows her changing her mind a few times, even removing and editing choices along that way that she did not like. “The first few minutes can really set the mood of the painting,” she affirms.Check out the January Creative Crate!  >u</ Thank you for checking it out!
