welcometoplanetheart asked: WOW your work's amazing♥I'd like to know what type of paper you use and what do you use (i'm starting illustration and I'd like to try as many techniques as i can)xx
Thank you!~ I have a whole FAQ on supplies here. Hope that helps. It is super important to try as many styles as possible, combining techniques until you find your own.
escapismtorefresh-deactivated20 asked: Have you ever thought of doing graphic novels?
Originally i wanted to be a graphic novelist when I was in college, but fell in love with painting more. I’d definitely still consider making one. I have plenty of stories inside me to tell. ♥
jasuumin-deactivated20130307 asked: YOUR STYLE IS SO COOL, and you're portraits are awesome. Pardon if this has been previously asked, but what would you say your largest influences to your art would be?
Thanks! My favorite deceased artists are Gustav Klimt, Francisco de Goya, Henry Fuseli, Fragonard, and Frida Kahlo.
Contemporary artists are hard to single out. About six years ago I was very into Audrey Kawasaki, Stella Im Hultberg, Amy Sol, and Natalia Fabia. Since then i’ve been inspired by James Jean, Taylor McKimens, Yoshitomo Nara, and Aya Takano.
There are a lot of great artists out there. But I should mention that I don’t look directly at art a lot for inspiration & influence. I feed my brain with comics, design, food photography, fiction, film, and fashion. It helps me avoid my work looking directly like someone else’s.
I made a quick video on the supplies i use when painting. Pardon my voice, i’m still sick. Sounds like i smoked like 10 packs of cigarettes.
From now on, i’m gonna tag questions/ answers under “faq” or “wishcandy faq”. If you have any more questions, just ask! I’ll eventually get to them!
