My Bio
What to say? I am creeping toward 30, and studying English lit (when I am studying). Art is something I have done since I was small, like many people. I tend to do two things: digital art that vaguely mimics watercolors or marker work, and pencil sketches. I am more illustrative than realistic. I work with a Wacom Intuos Pen or (sometimes!!) Surface Pro 2 in Paint Tool SAI and occasionally Photoshop, an iPad with SketchBook Pro or doodle in pen or 5mm mechnical pencils (preferably).

I can also paint in watercolors and acrylics. But it's such a pain that I don't, usually.

My favorite artist is Alphonse Mucha, and Art Nouveau in general has always appealed to me. Other artists I traditionally enjoy include John R. Neill and Renoir ... check who I am following for the kind of living artists I like. Tony DiTerlizzi's work I find gorgeous, and I follow a number of webcomics that I am too lazy to write out now.

Basically, there's something about a well placed line that catches my eye.

Personally, I wish I was better with anatomy of all kinds, and the shape of hands and feet still get to me. I feel frustrated when art is not "effortless", and I admire a cartoonish, casual style but feel like a chump when I try to emulate it.

I pretty much only upload my art to tumblr now. It's all tagged for easy access, though.

Name change!

Name change!

Will soon be accompanied by an icon change as well. I really paid for a premium membership just to get rid of kimxchan, that's how sick and tired of that nickname I am. Which makes this the second site I've given money to just to feel less like a 16 year old. Yay!

Tumblr

Tumblr

So, I set up a tumblr, mostly to follow other people, but I'm also putting art-like stuff up there. A lot of it will be things that end up here eventually, but a lot of it also, uh, won't.
