How to Background: A Guide
Manga and Anime Week
    
    In my experience, backgrounds are often seen as difficult and/or challenging, especially by beginning artists, and many tend to avoid complex ones in the beginning. A mix of scary technical terms such as 'perspective', 'composition', 'lighting', 'values' and so forth is often associated with them, which can easily seem overwhelming. And, since backgrounds can sometimes very much be considered as pieces of art on their own; they requires essentially as many various skills as drawing anything else.
    Having struggled my way through this myself, I'd like to share some advice and my thoughts on approaching more complex backgrounds or how to start. It's definitely not the only or the 'right' way to approach backgrounds, and of course I'm still learning too, so I just hope you find this advice useful!
1. Types of backgrounds
First of all, it's important to note that a bac

I'm having Lunar New Year holiday so I'm opening for commission now

I kinda need money to give out to my younger cousins (this is a traditional custom in many Eastern countries called 'lucky money'). But I'm quite broke at the moment... Please consider commissioning me ;-;

/Payments

Total Price = Base price + Additional fee (additional characters, extra details,...) + Background fee  
No refund unless I cancel the commission
- First come first serve, payment is in advance. I only start working on your commission after you pay me 50%, then you will get the full piece after paying the rest.
- Tips are very appreciated.

A. Paypal: 

My paypal email: trangpham942@gmail.com
My price is in USD. 
My price included the Paypal fee. 

Make sure to choose "Pay for goods or services"
in order not to get in trouble from PayPal. Art commissions are considered a Service. The Friends/Family option is for gifts, or possibly refunds/partial refunds since you are not expecting a service in return for those transactions.

Under "Your Shipping Address", select "no address needed"
because you are getting digital art online, not something delivered to your house.

B. Points: 

I prefer Paypal so if you have Paypal please pay with it.
With the balance $1=100 Points 
Paying through the DA commission widget (see my profile).
I take 100 Points as extra fee since it's pretty tough converting these into cash.


/Contacts

Send your commission form by:
  • Note on my DA
  • Message on my tumblr
  • DM on my Twitter 
  • E-Mail: thientrangpham942@gmail.com
  • Inbox on my FB

4. FAQ


- Do you use a tablet?
Yes, I'm currently using Intuos Comic small CTH-490/B1-CX

- Which programs do you use?
Paint tool SAI, Photoshop and Clip Studio Paint Pro, Manga Studio EX too (MS EX has more features than Pro). I'm using the crack version of SAI and Photoshop. I'm thinking about buying license when I open commission.

- Do you draw traditionally? Or only digitally?
I draw both, but I only use pencil, eraser and ink pens for traditional drawings, sometimes I use coloredpencils and highlight marker. I don't know how to use watercolor and it's a pain to clean up after coloring... Well, I'm lazy

- When did you start drawing?
As I remember and as my family told me, I first picked up a crayon and started to draw when I was 3. And yeah, I started to get serious for practicing when I was 13.

- Did you study art? Which school/course?
No, I didn't go to any official art school/class. Self-taught only.

- What do you enjoy drawing the most?
Everything, I think. Actually I'm not sure what I like the most, but yeah, it's everything

- What inspires you to draw?
Mostly Touhou... and its fanmade. They are doujinshi, fangame, music arrangements, theories, fanmade music,... I think Touhou won't stop inspiring me until I know all about it. In addition, to me, you may take a life time to know and understand all about Touhou.
My favourite artists' artworks inspire me a lot too, they make me want to draw something.
Anime/Manga are also the things that make me want to drawwwwwwww, I prefer manga, both the art and the story inspire me more than anime (whispering: I want to be a mangaka so I decided to start to draw).
Next are books and music, these are usually artists' inspritations. It's like when you read a book or listen to a song, you feel like it, you feel there's something in it, and that must be drawn to something that is visual.

- Do you often get artblocks?
USUALLY. I mean, there are lots of kind of artblock. When I get artblock is when I don't know how to draw the thing I want to draw; as well as when I have ideas but looking at the white paper/canvas, I forgot my ideas; and when I want to draw but don't know what to draw or can't imagine the thing I want to draw;... etc.
To stop your artblock, I think the best ways are suft around the Internet and try to look at others' artworks, listen to some music (like Touhou songs OwO), read some books,... or just go to bed and take a nap like me. But before doing all those stuff, I cry first (just kidding).

- How long does it take you to finish a drawing?
It depends on each type, except doodle, it won't be shorter than 2 days, I think, because I'm usually busy with school.

- When will you open commissions?
I'm not sure about this. I'm in grade 9th now and gonna have a graduate test and the end of the school year, to me VN education is very heavy and strict... So I think I couldn't open commission until next year, earliest is when it's Tet holiday, or you might have to wait until June.
Another reason is I'm not old enough to use Paypal, so I think I'm gonna persuade my cousin to let me borrow his name to create Paypal account, but not now... If I open now, maybe I'll just take a coremember as the payment.

- Do you take requests?
I only take requests when I get artblock, but rarely. Mostly the requests are doodles. Usually, I don't take request from strangers but my friends. Don't worry, I'll make an anouncement when I take request.

- Can we do art trades? Or collabs?
If you're my closed-friend, tell me anytime. Send me a note if you're stranger pleaseee =w=

- Can you join my projects? Or art books? Or contest?
I'm glad that you care about me, but I'm not alwasy free so please send me a note about your PJ/artbook/contest and I'll consider if I can join or not.

- Can I draw fanart/fanfiction/cosplay your OC/mascots?
Feel free! I will appreciate if you like my characters that much. But please credit me and make sure you know enough about my character in order not to make them out of character.

Should I post my Inktober here?

If you're following my Twitter or Tumblr, you may have seen my Inktober drawings I've been posting recently.

I wonder if I should post them here...?
[Dropped] GilEnki by tinkatiranor
Hi guys, I'm here to tell you that I'm posting my WIPs and dropped art on DA too. But most of you may not be noticed because I post them in my scrapbook.

Visit my FB and Twitter to see my WIPs more frequently.

P/s: the drawing above is one of my dropped art lately.
Announcement

I will be unactive for quite a long time on DA.
I need to practice more and do some experiment to explore my own artstyle. Also, I need to focus on school stuffs.
So yeah, I think I will be more active on FB and Twitter. Like my page or follow me if you want to see my WIPs and updates.

Anyway, please note that my Commission is always open, so feel free if you want to commission me, just drop me a note.  <da:thumb id="747009831"/>
