Here are my answer to the questions.


1. Coran started creating digital art with a mouse; what tools did you use when you first started making art?

Pencil was my very first tool in making art and I still draw using pencil today.


2. What's your favorite part of your workspace? What do you wish you had in your space?

My music player on my desk because I almost always listen to music as I draw or paint. Manually or digitally.

I wish I had a big desk and an ergonomic chair.

Works that appreciated by many people.

Very fun and very difficult challenge! I had to think of lots of different creative methods to achieve dimension including blending modes, textured brushes, blurs and gradients. I am so happy with the result!! I hope you all like it too!!! pink heart {big}


I answered all the questions in the description of the drawing and I am planning to release a video on it

R=i started with pen and paper but due the lack of money to buy a tablet i had to do this one with the laptop trackpad 2. What's your favorite part of your workspace? What do you wish you had in your space? R= my workspace is quite calm and i have my tools at hand for other jobs; i wish i had a tablet to kickstart and practice what i can learn 3.What helps you feel confident? R= hmmm there is no confidence here just the presure of my decaying healt and the tougth of give up the dream or try without the tools i hope this submision is enough for the contest(i really would like to have a tool but my healt dont allow it) so anyway good luck everyone and have a good night!

Hello, this is my OC, Maxllir, a sadistic thorough! This drawing was made especially for the contest, I used my mouse to draw in Photoshop. I hope you enjoy my work where I put a lot of affection!


(Answers to the three questions ...)

1- Like many designers, I started with simple pencils and A4 paper.


2- My place of work is my home, the most favorite items that I should have around are the drawing materials and my computer.


3- I believe that the insent that people give me makes me more confident!

Your Thoughts

  1. Coran started creating digital art with a mouse; what tools did you use when you first started making art? so im pretty new to digital art but i started off with pencils. i started when i was little and since then its kinda been an on and off obsession, moving from cartoonish art, to still lifes, to photography, to manga and now (hopefully) to digital art and maybe even animation.

  2. What's your favorite part of your workspace? What do you wish you had in your space? my favourite part of my workspace is either my (cheap) mechanical pencil, my school laptop or my coloured watercolour pencils. i wish i had a wacom tablet or drawing pad and am slowlyyyy saving up for one (they are SO expensive)! i also wish i had adobe animate...

  3. What helps you feel confident? i feel confident every time someone favourites something i've made. i don't get to many but every time someone shows that they seen what ive made it makes me feel slightly less of an awful artist (if i can even call myself that).

The battle

#DAMouseDraw


  1. Al igual que la mayoría de artistas con lápiz y papel, sin embargo; cuando comencé con el dibujo digital en un teléfono fue como comenzar desde cero así que también cuento a mis dedos.

  2. La iluminación y su versatilidad, pues cambio constantemente entre dibujo digital, en papel y en lienzos. Me gustaría tener colores Prismacolor o una variedad mas grande de colores, y esa es una razón por la que amo el dibujo digital ya que no me veo limitado en cuanto a los colores a usar. Y siendo sinceros; también me gustaría tener una tableta gráfica.

  3. En parte que mi mamá me ayude a ver si hay un error anatómico y el notar como a lo largo del tiempo he ido progresando.
