I’m self taught in the loosest possible definition of the term :P
I’ve been drawing longer than I’ve been walking and talking, but for the longest time I never drew my own ideas because I was frustrated when they didn’t look like they did in my head.
So I just copied and learned from other artists until I found my own style and had picked up enough influence from artists I admired to be able to stand on my own.
Never ever be afraid of needing references or inspiration or help.
I always felt ashamed when I had to look up a pose or check how someone else shades, because I always thought that a good artist would know how to do those things instinctively.
But that’s simply not true.
There are million ways to do one thing, and seeing how other people do it will help you find your way faster.
Obviously don’t just rip off another artist’s work, and always give credit where it’s due- but keep learning and always let yourself be inspired- not intimidated- by the endless supply of art around you.
Hope that helps!
a) Thank you!
b) It all comes from my brain and 24 years of being surrounded exclusively by sarcastic people.
c) Main influences include: Monty Python, Douglas Adams, Brian Froud, Lev Yilmaz and this one book about fairies my mum bought me in 2001.
I like sharpies.
If that’s what you mean.
People recognised me.
…but in a good way.
My flatmate, who is an awesome professional animator will cringe at my answer…
But I draw all the illustrations individually in Photoshop (using a preset canvas size to match YouTube’s settings) and then I export them individually as pngs.
I then stitch all the pictures together in a timeline using Final Cut.
In other words, I make life very difficult for myself for no reason, but I have fun doing it! :P
Recorded Phan sightings date back as far as 1611 some time after the first settlers arrived in New England.
Most notably, a surviving witness statement from Robert Cotton, a priest, claims:
"It was the height of the thirteenth hour when [Phan] made face- an apparition from across a field first in light then in swarm. The weather soured and upon my cries the manifestation darkened, withdrew unto itself and abruptly dispersed."
The most recent encounter with Phan is alleged to have been experienced by Jess Michaels of Houston, Texas in 1998. Though experts dismiss the case as a simple ‘narcotic induced episode’.
To this day, most sensible scholars maintain that Phan does not reasonably exist.
I for one, think anything is possible.
Yeah, sounds cool! Just be sure to give credit where it’s due, eh? ;)
(Hope the show goes well- is there any way for me to listen in?)
Thank you!! :D
I’m very happy/excited! … I’m Hapcited!
Well it’d have a reeeally specific colour scheme (Blues, deep purples and turqouise).
It’d be constantly night time with visible nebulae in the sky, and there’d be lots of trees, waterfalls and glowing/ sparkly things.
And obviously faeries galore.
