Oh, sorry, I actually was hoping you could tell me your artistic references, like who you look up to when drawing something…
Ooooh… like idols?
I try and give you a little list of some artists I like and that come into my mind right now. ^^
- Paul Kidby (The Discworld novels)
- Guy Davis (b.p.r.d.)
- Mike Mignola (Hellboy)
- Joan Sfar (Professor Bell)
- Lewis Trondheim (Donjon)
- Tove Jansson (Moomins)
Sometimes when I’m frustrated I take one of their works and just look at it/ read it. Makes me feel better.
I hope that answered your question. ^^ If not ask again until I get this right. xD
Lol, that’s the only thing you guys look at in the photographs, right? xD
It’s a crappy b/w print my sister gave me. I wish I had the real fullsize coloured poster though. xP
I like ask memes: 4, 10 ,12. How is your burn. I hope it's healing well and doesn't bother you much
Did 12 already.
I like doing lineart and sketching traditionally on paper (especially now sicne I found this amaziing pen I will never stop talking about xD) and I prefer colouring at the computer. And I like doing both I guess, sometimes one of them more, sometimes less.
- 10: Least favorite thing to draw?
Persepctive and buildings/rooms/furniture. :C Because it’s difficult.
I'd like to know 5, who/what inspires you.
I hate this question, because it can be ANYTHING.
If I want to make a underwater sea monster, I might get inspired by certain pictures and videos of sea creatures. When I make up a character I might get inspired by real people’s faces or their behaviour. If I see a fancy victorian dress I might save this to my hard disc for later when I need to create a steampunk outfit.
When it comes to drawing I guess things just happen in my head.
But why I don’t like this question is, because I always have this picture in my head of an artist who runs around and sees a flower and then makes theatrical gestures saying “Oh the inspiration! This beautiful flower, i must capture its eternal beaut forever, expressing my admiration for nature’s genius in an masterpiece of form and colour!”. But actually I just sit around and suddenly have an idea, out of nothing, or threads suddenly combining in my head.
Mh, but maybe having an idea is something else than inspiration.
Anyway, everthing can inspire me in some way, If I just find it interesting enough regardless on what level (seeing something, smelling something, hearing something, reading about something, etc.)
Or just simply a sexy computergame Doctor… xP
Done 1 and 8 already. So 12 it is
- 12. Any weird artist behavior you admit doing?
I always make the same face as the character I am drawing, but I guess most artists do that, so it’s not weird.
But here’s a weird one: When I paint with Aquarelle (water colours) I often lick or suck on the brush to get rid of too much liquid. xP
Left hand Engie is shooting into right hand Engie’s knee. Ouch.
Right one is dominant If you cannot see already. xPP
This is my computer workspace
and If I make an elegant 180° turn around on my office chair I have my traditional workspace. (I’ve built some extras for that table, like a kind of simple lighttable and tilting drawing board I can attach, but I was to lazy to put it all on.)
sorry the photographs are pretty dark.
Yes I do. But to what I listen depends on my mood. Could be metal, could be a film score, could be blues etc. I also sing. xP
And when I draw something where I don’t have to think much, like just making lineart, or painting soemthing, I like listening to science or comedy Podcasts etc.
Little Fat Engie with a different Outfit. I wanted to know how he’d look with the ‘Scotch Saver’ and ‘Texas Slim’s Dome Shine’.
(Dis new Pen!! Aaaaah, I love it! *Fangirl squeel* )
