12. Any weird artist behavior you admit doing?
I tend to glare really hard at whatever I’m working on if I’m really in the zone. (Alternately, raise my eyebrows really really high.) Then when I turn away, my face relaxes and I realize how hard I was doing it. :v
1, 9, 11 if you'd please dear Kobb! <3
1: Take a picture of your workspace.
Cheating a little bit here, since I had this photo beforehand… it’s after dark and indoor photos turn into grainfests. Add some more desktop icons and a can of Sprite and it’s pretty much the same now.
9: Favorite thing to draw?
I love doing sketchy riffs of mine or others’ characters, having them react to things, playing with expressions. It’s like a loose, play-version of what I love about comics/storyboards.
Animals are definitely my crutch, though. Gotta keep working on that.
11: Draw a pic of yourself like how you look just now.
10: Least favorite thing to draw?
Manmade objects with lots of straight lines. I really want to be good at drawing architecture, but I need to study it more before it will come even the tiniest bit naturally. I also have a hard time with vehicles and complex firearms.
Unless they are WWII aircraft, because those have really pleasing shapes. Still difficult for me to draw, but I’m a lot happier about it.
2 and 5! :D
2: Show your pencil case and what’s inside.
This is the bag that I keep my traditional art stuff in, since I tend to use it on sketch trips (i.e, zoo trips). There are grayscale markers, various pens, 0.5 mechanical pencil, ink brush, watercolors for when I’m feeling ambitious, and (not pictured) a white colored pencil. Lately I’ve been doing a lot more digital sketching than I have with this stuff, which is a thing I need to change.
My other portable art platform is an enclosed clipboard, where I just keep paper, a pen, and a mechanical pencil. Usually that’s what I use for BWD thumbnails, because sometimes it can help to get away from the computer and go sit somewhere else to draw.
5: Who/what inspires you?
Aw man, that’s really broad. D: I follow a ton of artists that inspire me, read/watch/play a ton of works that inspire me, and then there’s the whole part where the natural world is super awesome, and aargh. I tend to focus too much on fanart because I get really excited about poking around in existing worlds, but hopefully I’m learning things that will help me as I build my own.
And in the end, that’s kinda the magic ingredient that really makes me want to make stuff - making other people feel things. I love watching that happen. :]
