Heya what's up ! : D
I thought this'd make into a good moment to do a general update of events again c:
First of all, I GOT MY DRIVING LICENSE ! After failing two times in a row, my Karma finally decided to take it easy on me I guess :,D... So, there's another danger on the Dutch roads from now on >
And I managed to get through my last project for this semester !! It's finally time for me to start on the last part of my college, an internship of 3 months and another one for 6 months. And after that, I'll hopefully graduate :> Those 4 hours of sleep in two days and living on crackers was definitely worth the results. I guess I never had that terrible black bags under my eyes as the morning I had to present my project.. hah, good times| D
And then there's the lottery I recently held to celebrate reaching the 1500 watchers here on on deviantArt ! I want to mention that I'm happy to have had the chance to draw so many varied and interesting characters, it was a fun ride and I'll definitely do this again for the next 1500 to follow ! <3
To the people who have left me a comment on my youtube channel, for some reason I am not able to respond to comments as my "reply button" suddenly dissapeared :c I'm trying to find out how to fix it and will answer your comments/questions as soon as I can ! (:
To end this journal, I also want to do a little feature of all the amazing drawings you people made for me in the past weeks, in trades, gifts, everything <3 ! Go give them lots of love ! They deserve it ! : D
Can I use your characters and other work for RPG sites ?
NO. Never. I am very careful with my artwork being used on other sites as many of them include characters of other people (commissions, trades etc). Plus my own characters mean the world to me. So I'd appreciate it if they are not used on other sites.
Do you do requests?
No, It would be unfair towards the people who commission me. I do make a couple of exceptions for CLOSE friends though.
What drawing programs do you use?
I use Photoshop CS6 and Paint Tool Sai. Usually, I work on backgrounds in Photoshop and do the line work in Paint Tool Sai.
What do you use to sketch?
It varies. I use my Bic Cristal ballpoint pens the most though when it comes to sketching traditionally. I still use the Pentel mechanical pencils a lot as well. And recently I started sketching with the Pentel Pocket Brush as well.
Where can I read about your characters?
I have an account on Charahub where I store all the background information about my characters. You can find my account by following this link: charahub.com/user/Autlaw
What canvas size do you use for digital work?
I always work above the 3000 x 3000 pixels, and for the biggest paintings I use 5000 x 5000 pixels or above (:
What inspires you to draw what you draw ?
I get inspiration from pretty much anything and anywhere. I mostly get inspired by nature (landscapes, clouds, animals etc), by people I've seen in my life or who are close to me, various anime series and artists I look up to have also inspired me for a huge part, and of course a lot of artists here on deviantArt who inspired me to start drawing (;
