What's so special about your work besides the point that it's digital. You do the same thing over and over again, I don't find meaning except for a beautiful face. Have you ever, or going to, do something different?

You seem to be under the illusion that I somehow owe you entertainment through the viewing of my work. To clarify, I do not, nor does any other artist who is creating personal work for themselves. It’s okay if you find my work repetitive or boring, that’s irrelevant to me. I’m not asking you to understand my work either. My advice to you would be to go ahead and create your own work that is full of everything which you perceive mine to lack, then feel free to show me how it’s done. Until then, don’t worry so much about what I’m creating or what I am going to create, because I’ll just be busy over here continuing to get paid.

So in love with your work and I was amazed to learn you are self taught. Do you only draw and paint digitally or have you tried other mediums?

You’re lovely, thank you! I’ve recently been exploring new mediums like watercolour, ink, and charcoal. I’m hoping to get around to oil in the near future, too.

Love your stuff! Do you trace real pictures in photoshop? And what sort of photoshop brushes do you use, like, do you prefer more or less transparency? I find it very hard to blend in digital medium. And sorry, one last question, how many layers do your drawings typically have? Thank you (:

Thank you! For paintings I’ll usually just work out the outline sketch using grids. I use pretty much the same brush 90% of the time, it’s a default one in ps cs5/6, and I always have it on 100% opacity. I just control transparency with pressure. Most of the time it’s just the one layer for painting because I find it much simpler/easier.

Not that there's anything wrong with tracing, but do you trace the outline of the faces you draw before colouring them in? Your proportions are outstanding. Please do a timelapse video! x

Thank you! I just use proportion lines or grids when I’m not feeling lazy. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with tracing outlines either though, it’s such an eyeroll moment when people complain about grids/traced outlines being cheating, and I don’t think that people who use grids should be trying to invalidate those who trace their outlines because it’s pretty much the same. I can’t make a timelapse video anytime soon but maybe one day! :)
