Frequently Asked Questions
Do you do any free art / art requests?
As art is now my full time career, I cannot work for free. Whilst there will be rare occasions such as drawing gifts for my friends, taking part in art events or running giveaways and raffles (mostly via my Patreon), I do not offer free art on a regular basis.
What do you use to draw?
Paint tool Sai and a Huion Kamvas screen tablet.
I don't have any money, how else can I support you?
- Retweet/Likes on Twitter
- Shares/Likes on Facebook
- Following my Patreon and interacting on posts (likes/comments)
- Join my discord
How old are you?
Currently 33 years old
What do you find inspires you?
My art style originally stems from cartoon films such as the lion king and balto, but nowadays my inspirations lie within seeing other artists and what they're working on. I support a few others on Patreon myself, and would love to support more when I have more financial freedom to do so.
What do you like drawing best?
Mostly within the furry fandom, so anthropomorphic animals. My main focus has always been on character design and illustration, which is why most of my work is focused entirely on the character with little to no background detail.
Why are you so awesome?
I don't treat other artists as competition, but rather as a large family that should work together and help each other to grow. Networking with other artists is very important to me, and if you ever need help with reach on twitter or facebook, i'm more than happy to share/retweet or even lend some friendly advice. A lot of what I learned is from talking to other artists, so it would be selfish to withhold that knowledge from others.
How do you keep motivated?
I have a mantra that I follow.
"Draw even when it looks terrible, especially if it looks terrible"
The reasoning behind this is that our perception of art and our ability to create art is constantly interchanging. When your perception > ability you can see the flaws and your art appears to be bad. When your ability > perception you can't see the flaws so your art appears good. Being aware of this, I no longer encounter art block as I do not let myself to stop drawing just because it doesn't look right.
In fact, I would recommend being more messy with your sketching when you're in that perception > ability state, and clean sketching on another layer or two until you achieve what you're trying to draw.
Can I message you?
You are free to message me at any time on social media or via my contact form or email, if you want to make a business enquiry, get advise, or something similar. I dislike small talk, so please refrain from just sending me 'hi' and 'how are you' messages. Otherwise, I do love to talk and make actual conversation, so as long as you have something to get the ball rolling, you will have no issues in talking to me <3
