My Bio

About Me

I've been consistently making digital art for sixteen years. Before that, I was a somewhat-skilled, random doodler, drawing random things on random sheets of paper, and in my sketch book. Then I took some courses on Photoshop, bought a Wacom tablet, and got hooked on art as a serious hobby. I like to draw and paint almost every morning, right after waking. My other main hobby is writing—I've written several unpublished novels. I also crochet and knit in the winter.

About this gallery

Most of my art is PG-13 with the exception of a few that are are a bit bloody. I have two main styles: a cell-shading style and a painting style (that isn't all that great yet). Sometimes, I draw in anime-style.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Do you take commissions?

No. I have health problems (schizophrenia, and several other health issues) that would make it too difficult to do work outside of my regular job.


Do you do art trades or requests?

Not at the moment. I'm totally immersed in learning how to paint better.


Why didn't you watch me back?

I watch and fav the art of a mix of intermediate to advanced artists. I may not have watched you back at this moment but this doesn't mean I won't in the future.


Why did you un-watch me?

I un-watch people who don't put filters on their nudes, or filters on art that's super bloody. I also get annoyed when people click the "notify watchers" button and keep sending the same artwork, with every little change, several times.


What's your best advice for budding artists?

View your work in a mirror often. If you're working on a digital art, use the option in your drawing software to flip it horizontally (and even vertically). Doing this will show you all the mistakes.


Do you have any tutorials?

No, but I have many sketches in my scraps folder that people might find helpful to look at.

I switched over to working on my Phoenix (Jean Grey) painting. I've done some colour flatting on it, and it's much more interesting to work on. She'll be painting number 50 (since Nov 2018). For some reason, I couldn't get into the How to Train Your Dragon art. I was really dragging my feet on it (maybe I'll chip away at it as a back-burner project).

I wanted to try something special for painting number 50. This one is a bit different from what I normally do. I'm not the best at cartoon styles, but I won't get better if I don't try, right? I've made 49 paintings since 2018, when I watched some tutorials and made a break through. Actually, I made two portraits before that (in 2014?). They're on my blog but they're they're not so good (Elsa, and Thor). I might try some more sketches. This one turned out better than I thought it would. EDIT: I made more fixes to this one.

In my city, the plants and flowers have popped. There's an army of daffodils marching down one hill. Dandelions got off to an early start too (they seem to know people want to pull them out of their lawns so much!). The cherry trees are about to explode in a profusion of pink, stinking blossoms. Fun. We've gotten a mix of sunny days and rainy ones. The latest lock down has been hard on everyone, and many people are struggling with depression. At times like this, it's good to keep our dreams in sight, because, like all tough times, this too will pass. Speaking of dreams, I was picking out stuff to donate (I want to downsize a bit). I came across an old book I filled out a year or two ago, called Eat That Frog Action Workbook; 21 Great ways to stop procrastinating and get more done in less time. It's written by Brian Tracy, a well known sales-person and public speaker. I highly recommend the regular book and the workbook. They really help people figure out what to do with their lives.
