Here are some frequently asked questions I've been getting.
If there's something you still want to know then comment on here or send me a note! (:

____________________________


What programs do you use?

Clip Studio Paint for the actual drawing and the newest Photoshop for resizing/color correction.
Krita and FireAlpaca are some great free drawing programs!

What tablet do you use?

An Intuos 5 from Wacom

What projects are you currently working on?

I'm working on War of Ashird with KumihoSoft and some secret ones!

Are you the artist for DDLC and who is your favorite character?

Yes and Natsuki

Will you be working on Team Salvato's next game?

No

Do you have any tipps for beginner artists?

Never stop drawing first of all. Second is observing/studying real life and art that you really like.

Any other tricks for drawing?

- Try to avoid using pure black/white.
- Image > Adjustments > Selective Color (or Curves) in Photoshop for correcting colors after the drawing is done.
- Keeping your layers tidy.
- Use references!
- Some amazing tutorials: iradukai.com/

For how long have you been drawing?

Since I've been a child. I did my first digital drawing when I was around 12 I think.

Who are your favorite artists?

For cute styles it's Sayori, Kantoku, Gayarou, Anmi and Nardack.
Other artists I really like are Honya Lala, Minaba Hideo, Matayoshi, Soey Milk, Lange, Mandrill and Tatsuyuki Tanaka

What brushes do you use?

I really like Daub's brushes for Clip Studio Paint and I usually draw on around 3000 x 4000px, 300-350dpi and the brush size on 4-5px.

Will you be making a Youtube channel?

Yes, I want to make one in the future for speedpaints/tutorials.

Is it too late for me to start? Im 17 now (Used to love drawing) I'm always sad when I see other people like you who have started since they were 14 or 13 or even younger. Used to love drawing but there were complications see? Love your art BTW you're the reason I started drawing again!

It's never too late to start! Just keep at it and don't give up. Sometimes I got frustrated and didn't draw a single thing in months but then got back to it.

Me too. I always cel-shaded my drawings (simple shades with no fades) with the shading layer's blending being at Reflect or Overlay. Before doing that, I used to always have a non-blending shading layer with 10-25% opacity (but I still do that for shading over white since Reflect/Overlay doesn't really work with brighter, unsaturated colors). I was never that good with shading and went with what seems logical to be shaded (depending on angle) and what came to mind.

Are you by any chance taking commissions?  If you are, what are your prices?  Plus do you have any limitations if that's the case?  (For example, no DDLC requests for legal reasonings )  I appreciate you taking the time to read this and get back to me.

Right now I'm not accepting any commissions. When I do again, I'll announce it on Deviantart/Twitter.
I don't have any limitations really and DDLC 'fanart' is fine as long as it's just for your private use, I think

Thanks for letting me know. This has been a pleasant surprise to wake up to. Do you consider your own art, fanart? If its not for official release, purposes its alright? I've actually been doing my own fan arts for my story and in general a bit, since we last talked. Its been pretty fun. And an odd scenario. Potato peeling Doki's. I was actually gonna ask what you thought of the idea of that. How each one, would approach such a mundane task? That was surprisingly enjoyable. I do have a question though. What does the back of Natsuki's head look like? Or what would her face be shaped like if she looked directly at you like Monika does. Would it be alright if I shared my story ideas with you? Hear your thoughts? And thanks again for getting back to me.

I think I did my first digital drawing when I was either 10 or 11, which are up on my page. Anyway..

Should I use a tablet? Stupid computer won't let me keep a couple windows up at a time in tablet mode. Although, I've been kinda not very good on a tablet, as I like to see my stylus and screen at the same time. Is there any difference? I don't know.

Shoot, I need to look up realistic wrinkles in digital drawings for clothing.

What do you mean with tablet mode? Are you talking about tablets where the surface is the actual screen?

Tablet mode?
I use one of those computers that can flip so it looks like a tablet, and I draw on the screen.

Satchely Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2018  Student Digital Artist
Ah okay. I prefer normal tablets but that's probably because I've drawn all my life on those. If you feel more comfortable with drawing on screen tablets, then I would stick to those.

I completely forgot about those type of bags. If I didn't, I probably would've figured it out.
I really liked your art in DDLC, and it is exciting for me to get an answer from someone connected to the game!

Question: Did you study about realism first before doing anime style or the otherway around? Also, I love your art!

Pretty helpful information! I guess I do have one question, though.

Will you be able to open up for commissions in the near future or do you foresee your current projects keeping you too busy?

That's fine, just curious. I'm more here for your art anyways, it's just that the other day I thought "Ooh, a commission from Satchely would look pretty great!"

I hope your current projects go well. :)

Her art style might not be suitable for their next project, or this may have just been a one time thing.
