Hello! What are you doing for Halloween? I was out Friday night and was surprised to see people were already walking around in costume! We saw Luigi, Waluigi, Tingle *shudders*, a bunch of playboy bunny/cat girls, a Teletubbie *more shudders* .. why did we only run into creepy costumes and not cool ones D:
I thought I was getting sick yesterday, but I feel better today. Either way, I'll be at work on Halloween so no festivities for me xD
I was tagged by notired
for that meme that's been going around, here goes!
's questions:1. what really inspired you into drawing 'seriously' (or often, or whatever)?
Embarrassingly what first inspired me to draw was DBZ. Lol ... I was obsessed with that show as a kid. What started me drawing more seriously was probably I was very unhappy in middle school (typical teenaged angst stuff haha, after all who LIKED midlde school) and drawing became my escape.2. what do you enjoy drawing most?
Right now, probably faces and heads, because they're difficult for me and always a challenge. 3. do you have a guilty pleasure about drawing? (something you really like to draw or see).
I really enjoy seeing horned people and kemonomimi. I really like to draw people with bird features, but I don't do this too often.4. who are some of your favourite artists?
Wow, hmm, I'd say my top three right now are AshleyCope
, one of my favorite artists ever since high school (: Chaotic-Muffin
I just discovered her art this year, it just really blows me away, I've never seen anything quite like her work. kidchan
because of her colors and imagination5. is your drawing style very different from when you started out? (anime to realism, for example!)
I hope so. My early stuff was very badly drawn DBZ-styled anime characters. I actually recently found a website that I uploaded art to in 2000 (I was ... 12, 13?) and completely forgot about until I accidentally stumbled upon it the other day. HORRORS, I tell you. I had a mild panic situation when I couldn't remember my password to take all those horrible things off the internet, but in the end I was able to take down EVERYTHING, thankfully, gah. SO EMBARRASSING6. is there something you want to learn how to draw better?
Anatomy and environments!7. do you have a favourite pose or position to draw?
Just the boring 3/4 head shot.8. do you have any special cicumstances for when you draw? (no jewelry on, no distractions, having a snack, etc)
I just like to draw in my room, that's special enough since I don't have as much time there as I used to9. do you multi-task while drawing?
I usually listen to music though occasionally I draw in silence. I was trying out watching movies and tv shows a while ago, but it was too distracting.10. do you like to spend a long time on one drawing, or work quickly/between many pieces at once?
I'd prefer to spend a long time on one drawing but time usually doesn't allow me to now, and I draw several pieces bit by bit all at once.11. are you open with your drawings. do you show it to any in real life friends or family?
A rl friend asked me this a week or two ago haha. The answer is no! I do not. I show one or two irl friends by email sometimes but that's rare. I don't really have that many irl friends who are interested in art, and if they are they aren't interested in looking at their friends' work, strangely enough. So I am really grateful for any feedback I receive on dA, you guys are the best, thank you
/s questions:1: Depending on if/when you are able to answer this question, what are you doing/what did you do for Halloween?
Nothing this year. Last year I attended the NYC Halloween parade, the year before I helped out with the giant spider on the clock tower for the same parade. That year I dressed up in a bird paper mache mask I made lizliu.com/images-old/sculptur… lizliu.com/images-old/sculptur…2: What is your favourite food or drink?
Food - sushi or huevos rancheros.
Drink - water, smoked tea www.adagio.com/black/lapsang_s…
, virgin pina coladas, heated milk with bittersweet dark chocolate chips melted in
Alcohol - Toasted Almond cocktails are amazing, it's like drinking almond cookies. With almond ICE CREAM mixed in.3: What is your favourite animal? Why?
It's so tough to just choose one animal. If I had to choose one it just might be chickens haha, because there are hundreds upon hundreds of species of beautiful chickens.4: How are you today?
Good! There was an ice snow/rain storm yesterday, today is the proverbial calm after the storm so it is peaceful and pretty.5: What matters to you the most in a piece of art?
If it works as a whole, if all the pieces add up together to create something greater than the sum of its technical parts.6: What is your favourite piece of art that you've made, and why?
None of them I am not satisfied with any of my work!7: Can you cite a source of inspiration for your work? How and why does it inspire you?
I can't really choose one thing that inspires me, many different things are inspiring.8: If you could change one thing in your life at this moment, what would it be?
I wish I could stay in my room and draw all day for like a year lol9: Is there anything you regret regarding your own art?
I wish I had spent more time learning the basics10: How do you feel about making up your own series of questions and tagging ten people to answer?
Ugh I don't know how I'm going to do that haha
