Thank u for all the messages at the journal and also the notes with questions  ^^
I believe there is still a lot of things that I could have answered, but I simply couldn't remember, but at least these are the questions I definitely can't forget 'cause these questions are almost everywhere  hehehe  :XD:
If there is anything else, be my guest. ^^


Olá! Obrigada pelas mensagens e notes com perguntas!
Mas infelizmente só agora q eu respondi o questionário q eu me dei conta q eu não tenho como escrever tudo isso em português tb!  >_<  Desculpa ae pra quem não manja muito de inglês, mas espero q um tradutor online possa resolver pra quem quiser saber o q está escrito.  T-T
Eu acho q ainda tem um bocado de perguntas a serem respondidas, mas eu simplesmente não consigui lembrar de mais nenhuma, mas pelo menos eu coloquei as q não tinham como esquecer pq estão praticamente em todo lugar! heheheheh :XD:
Quem tiver alguma outra pergunta, pode deixar escrito q conforme o tempo eu vou ir atualizando.



Where are u from?
I'm from South Korea, but I lived in Brazil since I was little.

How long do u take to draw an image?
It depends a lot in the image  O.o A simple illustration with no background takes around 1 hour. And more detailed a complex images can take around 3 or more hours. But I never actually counted the time, so I can't really tell precisely  >.<

How long do u take to color an image?
It also depends on the drawing  :XD:
A simple one takes 2 hours, I guess, and the complex shots take 6 hours or something like that.

Which material u use?
Regular A4 paper, 2B pencil, mechanical pencil (0.5), Staedtler ink pen – 0.05/0.3 for lineart.
After that I scan the pic in 400~600 dpi of resolution and start working it at Photoshop CS with Wacom Graphire 2 (3x4)
Sometimes I use watercolors and color pencils, but only for landscape paintings.

Which program u use?
Most of my works are done at Photoshop CS, and for page inking I use Manga Studio.

How much time u spend drawing during the day?
I draw almost the entire day when I'm lucky  :XD:
But at least I spend 4 hours drawing. And wherever I am, I try drawing anything at any piece of paper.

When did u started drawing?
I was interested in drawing since I was 7 years old , I guess. My mom always used to make some watercolor paintings and I was always amazed with that.

Did u do any art classes?
I did when I was 10 years old I guess. Attended for 2 years and then I did some academic drawing classes when I was 14 and learned some watercolor and oil painting skills. And later on I did 3 years of Visual Arts at college.

So did u had any manga/anime style classes?
No. These things I learned by myself after having art classes. Since I had the basics, with the interest and time I learned manga style and kept practicing.

What do u most like to draw?
Hands!!!  :XD: and dynamic poses!

What do u dislike drawing?
Mechas and these technical stuffs.

What does your family think about u working with drawings?
I believe the greatest factor that made me improve in my drawings is because I had this enormous support from them. Specially when I wasn't punished after drawing at the entire inside walls from the house! LOL  :XD: (ok…maybe just a bit…) But they like it, and for that I really grateful  ^_^

Where do u get inspiration?
Sometimes photos and daily things that I imagine. I don't like drawing too much 'poser' images cause they can really block me sometimes, so whenever I get the chance I draw a scene of something happening, always trying to imagine what would be fun to see.

Which are your influences?
There are so many artists  O.o  I believe i'll go for the most recents.
Hiromu Arakawa, Park Sung Woo, Shimizu Aki, Alphonse Mucha, Glen Keane, Toshihiro Kawamoto

Do u have MSN or Y!Messenger?
I do, but I rarely access it. Please, don't ask for it. It's already difficult to talk with close friends and still draw the amount of drawings I have (want) to.  @_@  So I do prefer not to access it.

Do u have any comics?
Currently I have none, but I'm working on an online manga project with my friends :iconfran-briggs: :iconkalleder: Please, check them out also  ^^
As for Seeded Souls, I hope I can make it in time. It's not a project to be published or anything like it. It's just a story I want to make because I really like my characters and I love making comics.
And I have some other projects which aren't confirmed yet, so i can't tell anything at the moment. >.<''

What can I do to improve my drawings?
To tell the truth I can only say one thing.... PRACTICE!!
Truly! That's the only way! For me, drawing is much like playing the piano! it doesn't matter how much u know the language of the scores or to know by heart where u have to hit to get a sound, if u don't practice everyday u will get rusty and won't be able to follow the rythm!
Improvement in drawings depends on what u are focused on, I believe.
If u want to work on comics/manga, study layouts, comics language, dynamic, etc.
If u just want to improve illustrations, try working compositions, backgrounds, design, so this way u work on the elements in a pic.
And before all that, work a lot the anatomy, sketch a lot! not only still body position, but also gestures, body language, u know.
But go in phases! u will get pretty lost and frustrated if u start working on all this at once!
So I guess, actually I have to things to say: be PATIENT and PRACTICE.

How long have u been working with drawings?
I started taking it seriously when I was 19. I started drawing some small things long before, but never aimed for the drawing carrier seriously, in the true meaning of trying it at all cost and investing on it.

By the way, how old are u?
LOL!  I was born in '84. make the counts  :XD:

Do u have any tutorial?
Well, I have an old one I did long ago. But to tell the truth I haven't changed the way I prepare the image for coloring, so I guess it counts  :XD:
Just don't expect anything amazing  >.<''…..… version)… (versão em portugues)

Do u take request/art-trades?
Gee…….. O.o''……. I already have some drawings pending  >_< Please, no more!!
And I only do art-trades with close friends, and still, take a long time to make them!  :XD:

How come u do so many comissions?
Because I need some freaking money!!  :XD: When I have a Goal, I really focus on it!  =P
And also I can't post everything I do, cause I have some plans in the future.

Do u like drawing more guys or girls?
I like to draw both of them! :D But I have an awful time drawing kids. >.<

How come u draw animals this good?
I loooovveee drawing animals!!! Not only that, I used to have several pets. So I had a huge amount of reference for animal drawings hehehehe. Plus, I wanted to be a Vet till my 2nd year of Highschool!! Untill I failed at Genetics!!  :XD: So I focused my future in Art.

Can I be your friend?
Have any idea of how weird this sounds coming from a stranger?  O.o ''.....
Don't ask! just talk!  :XD: I can't automatically consider u my friend if I don't know u!

Hi there Tiggerfactory! What'up?
My question is it u who create those pyong emoticons?(I think a lot of people have already asked u that XP) If yes, doesn't it mind if i use them for making comics at my University? I'm just afraid about being pursued for copyright...I took 2 of the most fav emoticons of msn and made some comics strips...
I don't sell any products.

I had questions about Pyong the Fox and Google led me here.

First, is he your creation?

Second, what is the Pyong Card Game?

Third, if he is your creation, how do you feel about his popularity explosion as an emoticon/icon/avatar... e.g. [link]

tiggerfactory Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2007

As for your question, yes, i'm pyong's creator
Pyong Card game is a game created by a fan. It's a 'for fun' game
As for it's popularity, I can only be happy for it because he was created just for fun by me. with no commercial intention.
As for now since I work at the comic Industry, maybe I'll work with pyong in a a late future. But at the moment I've got more serious project to work with, so unfortunately there is nothing much I can do for the character

I was the exact same way with the whole Vet thing. I've wanted to be a vet for the longest time, but then I got a job at an animal hospital and decided it wasn't for me. Now I'm leaning more towards art^^;

S2En-JayS2 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2007
Wow 언니 your so great!!! XD I wish I could be a great artist like you are XD. Right now my goal is to be a game character designer or maybe work at disney lol~. I also I did like drawing when I was young and I didn't think of being a cartoonist when I was like 10-12 years old :D. And I always loved my mothers drawings, I would always ask her to draw me a princess or a mermaid. I missed those days, she drew me small clothes to play with my little paper dolls haha.

Anyways, if I get depressed, and not wanting to draw I will always think of you XD. Lets be great friends!!! >3<
